Slayer "Cast the First Stone"
Published Aug 31, 2015We're 13 weeks into Adult Swim's ongoing summer singles program, but Slayer's newly landed contribution to the series has been titled "Cast the First Stone." It's a thinker, that's for sure, but let's not bust our brains too hard and just focus on the thrash titans' new, blood-soaked banger.
The track, which will also be included on the band's forthcoming Repentless LP, starts off ominously with a bit of discordant and doomy guitar work. Soon, the arrangement adds hammer-down drum damage, a few noodly licks and plenty of mean-mouthed cries from bassist Tom Araya, who hints that someone is going to be paying for past crimes with their own blood.
Though Repentless touches down September 11 through Nuclear Blast, you can download the Adult Swim-sponsored album cut for free down below.
