SLAYER drummer talks about the band’s new album

SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo recently sat down for an interview with The Nervous Breakdown, where he gives an update on the band’s anticipated follow-up to 2009’s “World Painted Blood”.

The Nervous Breakdown: So what’s happening with SLAYER?

Lombardo: Writing new music. Kerry [King, guitar] and I are writing new material. We have nine songs and everything’s moving forward.

The Nervous Breakdown: What does it sound like so far?


The Nervous Breakdown: So old-school fans will be happy?

Lombardo: Traditional fans will be pacified and non-traditional fans will be like, “Again?”

The Nervous Breakdown: Any estimation when the album could see the light of day?

Lombardo: I don’t know, but 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. Kind of like what we did with “Psycopathy Red”, which was like a two-song 45.
