Slayer Working on New Record
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has revealed, via his Facebook page, that the thrash legends are working on a new album. Also in the brief message, Lombardo said that guitarist Jeff Hanneman is still recovering from a necrotizing fasciitis infection he received from a spider bite at the beginning of this year.
“Slayer is writing a new record. Jeff is still recovering and doing better,” Lombardo’s post read.
Since Hanneman contacted the infection, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in, including during Slayer’s performance at the Bog Four show at New York City’s Yankee Stadium in September.
