Slayer Set to Work on New Studio Album and EP
Speaking with the Nervous Breakdown [via Blabbermouth], drummer Dave Lombardo confirmed that the group have already whipped up a good chunk of material to put towards a follow-up to 2009's World Painted Blood.
"Kerry [King, guitar] and I are writing new material. We have nine songs and everything's moving forward," Lombardo confided.
While proper plans for the next album appear to be a ways off, the speedy drum icon hinted that the group will deliver a bite-sized blast beforehand.
"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," he said, adding, "Kind of like what we did with [World Painted Blood single] 'Psychopathy Red,' which was like a two-song 45."
When asked what the new tunes sound like, Lombardo apparently deadpanned, "Slayer." So, naturally, fans can expect Araya's gravely growl, thrash beats galore and at least 100 King-delivered dive-bomb solos. The Slaytanic Wehrmacht wouldn't have it any other way.
