According to Blabbermouth.net, Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo confirmed to Metal Injection at the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods awards - which was held on April 11 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California - that the band will release a new EP prior to taking part in this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. During an interview with The Nervous Breakdown, Lombardo stated about Slayer's current status, "[We're] writing new music. Kerry [King, guitar] and I are writing new material. We have nine songs and everything's moving forward." When asked what the new material sounds like, Lombardo said, "[It sounds like] Slayer... Traditional fans will be pacified and non-traditional fans will be like, 'Again?'" On the topic of when Slayer fans can expect to hear some new music from the band, Lombardo said, "I don't know, but we're going to do a three- or four-song EP to keep the fans pacified until we come out with the full-length record. Kind of like what we did with 'Psycopathy Red', which was like a two-song 45." Lombardo's side project Philm - which also features guitarist/vocalist Gerry Nestler (Civil Defiance) and bassist Pancho Tomaselli (War) - will release its debut album, "Harmonic", on May 15 via Ipecac Recordings.

    I hope this will be as awesome as their previous albums, but including something new and fresh in it would be nice! Can't say that Slayers style is boring, but wouldn't some little variation be cool?

    I just wish they'd get a producer who knew what he was doing. I'm tired of this band sounding like crap on every release after Show No Mercy.
