Slayer - RepentlessToday, unveil the album artwork for their 11th studio album, Repentless, due out September 11, 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco in collaboration with the band’s Tom Araya and Kerry King.

“We had a number of submitted ideas for the cover artwork,“ said Araya. “And we felt Marcelo’s was the best. We made some suggestions and the result is an awesome album cover.“

The band also announces that the album’s title and first official track will be available digitally virtually everywhere (Amazon, iTunes, Google) around the globe this Friday, June 19.

“’Repentless’ is my Jeff tribute,“ said ’s Kerry King. “I call it the ‘HannemAnthem.’ It’s my perspective of Jeff’s perspective, it’s what I think…if Jeff wrote a song for himself “Repentless“ would be it.“


Arrogance, violence, world in disarray

Dealing with insanity every fuckin’ day

I hate the life, hate the fame, hate the fuckin’ scene

Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity*
