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.
