Listen: Slayer’s “Implode”, the band’s first new song in five years

on April 24, 2014, 9:10am

Slayer has returned with a brand new song. Aptly entitled “Implode”, the pummeling assault of metal music not only serves as the band’s first new material in five years, but also marks their first release since the passing of guitarist Jeff Hanneman in May 2013.

“Implode” was debuted at last night’s Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles. The band then made the studio version available for free download through its website. Listen to a stream below.

According to Rolling Stone, Slayer recorded the song in Los Angeles earlier this month with producers Terry Date and Greg Fidelma. The band intends to drop a new album in early 2015, which will be release via their own yet-unnamed record label.

Hey you guys. Thanks for the story. But I thought that I’d mention Jeff Hanneman was one of the guitarists in the band, not the bassist. Love the website, I come here for all my music news. Keep up the great work!

You’re right, apologies. All fixed.
