On the recording process, Araya states:
We went [into the studio] in April. [Guitarist] Kerry [King] put together a bunch of songs. I did vocals for two songs before I flew out [to Europe for the current run of Slayer shows]. We are in the process of finishing those up. And hopefully they’ll have them mixed and we should have something out by the end of summer.
