Slayer, the long-reigning titans of thrash, returns with “Repentless” the band’s 11th studio album and its first album for Nuclear Blast. Produced by Terry Date, “Repentless” was written and recorded by guitarist Kerry King and singer/bassist Tom Araya at Henson Studios in Los Angeles, along with returning drummer Paul Bostaph and guitarist Gary Holt. “Repentless” is crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. Thirty-four years into its career, Slayer remains the preeminent punk-thrash band that helped establish the genre and that up-and-coming metal heads continue to revere and emulate. Slayer is a five-time nominated, two-time Grammy Award-winning metal juggernaut that writes songs which mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society. “Repentless,” the band’s first new album in six years, continues the Slaytanic offensive with a twelve-song, blood-shaking sonic attack. “Repentless” is dark, fast, aggressive and without mercy. It was also the most challenging record Slayer has ever had to make.
Currently on Mayhem Festival & gearing up for the release of new album “Repentless”, Metal Wani’s Dawn Brown & Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with SLAYER Drummer Paul Bostaph. He discusses Mayhem Festival, declining ticket and record sales, SLAYER new Album “Repentless”, what makes “Repentless” one of the deadliest Slayer album, differences in Slayer since his departure twice, current line-up, his opinion on social media, his opinion on Metallica’s “Black” Album, future of the band in terms of albums, tours and much more.
