Slayer Reveal 'Repentless' Artwork

Slayer Reveal 'Repentless' Artwork
The last few week have seen Big Four thrash kings Slayer rolling out more and more details on their 11th full-length, Repentless. Now, the band have gone ahead and given us a peek at the record's suitably slaytanic artwork.

As with many Slayer album covers, there's an anti-Christian bent to the artwork, which portrays bloodied and crucified martyrs, impaled angels and a portion of the band's familiar sword-adorned inverted pentagram logo. Smack dab in the middle is a jawless Jesus, who actually looks a bit like his simian doppelgänger from the famously revamped botched Ecco Homo fresco in Borja, Spain.

Also of note: Repentless is spelled out using an inverted cross for a "t," and the whole piece is apparently licked with soul-damning hellfire.

Slayer also revealed that the title track will go up as a digital download this Friday (June 19), ahead of the rest of the LP.

Down below, you'll find the recently leaked lyrics for the tune, which apparently have vocalist Tom Araya raging against the music industry, while pledging his allegiance to the metal scene. His lines about a "pissing match of egos" are a little clunky, but the song contains a from-the-heart admission from the metal lifer: "Playing this shit is all that keeps me alive."

You'll find the lyrics down below.

As previously reported, Repentless arrives September 11 through Nuclear Blast in a standard edition, as well as the "Metal Eagle Edition" that comes housed in an 11-pound aluminum alloy box in the shape of the band's logo.

"Repentless" lyrics:

Arrogance, violence, world in disarray
Dealing with insanity every fuckin' day
I hate the life, hate the fame, hate the fuckin' scene
Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity
Ain't got the time, I don't want anything from you
Feeding on my tolerance is all you fuckin' do
No looking back, no regrets, no apologies
What you get is what you see

Live fast, on high
Repentless, let it ride

My songs relive the atrocities
Can't take society any fuckin' more
Intensity, anarchy, hatred amplified
Playing this shit is all that keeps me alive
I leave it all on the road living on the stage
This is my life where I kill it everyday
So take you shot, bottom's up, this is no lie
I'll be beating this guitar 'til the day I die

Live fast, on high
Repentless, let it ride

I hate the life, hate the fame, hate fuckin' scene
Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity
Ain't got the time, I don't want anything from you
Feeding on my tolerance is all you fuckin' do
No looking back, no regrets, no apologies
What you get is what you see
We're all killing ourselves a little more everyday

Live fast, on high
Repentless, let it ride
