Blame the chubby bearded zen dude with the glasses who hardly works anymore for the delay of your album!
I kid. I bet Rick Tubin — I mean, Rubin — is to blame for the album not being out. It does feel like the fucker was wrapped up eons ago.
Slayer axeman Kerry King told old reliable, Eddie Trunk, (because he is old and sometimes reliable) at NAMM.
“We got two songs completed last year that I thought was going to come out before Mayhem,” sys Kerry. “And since they didn’t, they’re just gonna be on the record. They’ve just gotta get mixed. We have another one that just needs vocals and leads, and then me and Dave are working on eight complete other ones that we haven’t demoed. We’ve just gotta go in.”
“The whole hold-up now, as with every record we ever do, it seems like Rick Rubin changes distributors. And we’re kind of, like, left in limbo until he lands somewhere.
“I mean, realistically, we’re without a deal, but we plan on staying with Rick. But, he’s working out his distribution, when that gets settled, we’ll be recording. So I am very comfortable saying it will be out this year.”
