Slayer have confirmed that the band are busy writing a brand new album, to follow their tenth album "World Painted Blood" in 2009. The confirmation came from drummer Dave Lombardo over Twitter, who said:
Sadly, information stopped short there and there is no indication about when to expect the final product, what it might be called or who will record it. News of a new record is not entirely unexpected. The band were due to start work on their next release when guitarist Jeff Hanneman contracted a flesh-eating disease from a spider bite in February, which prompted the band to say that preparation for the new album would be postponed. "There's no way we'd go into a studio without him," declared singer Tom Araya at the time. "We require his musical skills, his writing skills He's an integral part of the band. So we're going to hold off until he's at 100 percent and can join that process and be part of it." In other Slayer news, the band recently confirmed they would perform their flagship album "Reign In Blood" in full in London next May as part of the ATP I'll Be Your Mirror festival. The event will mark 25 years since the album was first released. Phil Anselmo of Pantera gave praise to the classic album earlier this month, recalling the impact it had on metal in 1986: "There wasn't a single show I'd go to where "Reign In Blood" wasn't the talk of the night. It killed everything else even considered heavy."
