SLAYER bassist/vocalist Tom Araya spoke to Revolver magazine about the progress
of the recording sessions for the band’s eleventh studio album, due later in the year.
“We’re in kind of the beginning stages of the finishing stages, if that makes any sense,” he said. “We’re doing the mixing and mastering now, but we still need to sit down and figure out the album title, the album cover, the song titles, and the song list. We’ve recorded 13 songs for it; we’ll probably put ten on there, but who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky and we’ll put all 13 on there!”. “The whole process of this album started three years ago, when Jeff was still a part of it,” said Araya. “There is one track on there that we recorded with him, that he did play on, which was completely done except we hadn’t finalized the vocals for it. So we were fortunate to have something that he had participated in.”
