Check out Slayer’s new track When The Stillness Comes

Kerry King said he was in a bad mood when writing this song:

We were touring Europe and we had a three-hour ride in some fucking minivan and I’m just miserable in the backseat, not into anything. So I just stated jotting down hateful thoughts. It’s about a dude who wakes up at a crime scene and realizes he’s killed everybody. It’s really cool.

The song is taken from their as yet untitled forthcoming new album, their first since 2009! The album, produced by Terry Date (Pantera, White Zombie), will also be the band’s first album since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman in 2013 and the departure of drummer Dave Lombardo the same year.
