Early in February 2013, Kerry King was talking about the next Slayer album:
“I’m very comfortable saying that it will be out this year.”
Slayer fans, don’t get your hopes up just yet. The status quo have changed since the news of Dave Lombardo being benched from Slayer Australian 2013 Tour broke on Thursday February 21, 2013.
Jeff Hanneman is still recovering from necrotizing fasciitis and most likely won’t be contributing to the next Slayer record as of yet.
“I have enough material on my own if need be, but I’m open,” King says. “If Jeff comes to the party with some new material, hell ya! I will play all the guitars. I’ve been playing all the guitars for years anyway, except for Jeff’s leads.”
Perfect for Kerry King Project, with Tom Araya on vocals and bass.
