SLAYER – Announce More Details On New Album

Slayer's Tom Araya

TMD Rocks!

Columbia Records have not yet confirmed an exact release date for the new album from Slayer.

The band's publicist, however, has noted it should be out during this summer. 

The first new track from the album – "Psychopathy Red" – was made available as a 7-inch vinyl disc on April 18th, as part of the third annual Record Store Day. Only 5,000 of these limited edition discs were manufactured worldwide. The blood-red vinyl 'Psychopathy Red' 7-inch collectors item will be packaged in a special Russian crime scene "evidence envelope," as the song was inspired by the heinous Russian serial killer Andrei Chikatilo, aka the Rostov Ripper, who confessed to brutally murdering 56 children. The song was recorded by the band – guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, and drummer Dave Lombardo – in a Los Angeles recording studio last October.
