Slayer's Bostaph warms up for work

Paul Bostaph has released a clip of his studio warm-up as Slayer continue recording their 15th album.

They’re currently working with producer Terry Date on the follow-up to 2009’s World Painted Blood. No details have been released, although it’s expected early next year via Nuclear Blast.

Guitarist Kerry King recently said he knew the band were under pressure to deliver after the death of co-founder Jeff Hanneman and the dismissal of original drummer Dave Lombardo.

King admitted: “I know people are going to expect us to fail. I get it. But I’m very proud of what we’ve done so far. It’s everything that people liked Slayer for in the past. Don’t worry about it.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
