World Painted Blood

The mighty Slayer has confirmed a release date for the band's 10th studio album: World Painted Blood will be released on Monday 2nd November. In addition, Slayer has revealed the complete and correct track listing for the album that can be found on the band's newly-designed, just-launched website:

"As we're so excited about World Painted Blood," said the band's Dave Lombardo, "we wanted to do something special for the packaging, and have been working with some really cool ideas. They've taken time to get just right, and with our headlining the Mayhem tour for most of the summer, it's just taken that much longer to get all these great ideas exactly the way we want them."

There will be three different editions of World Painted Blood - a limited edition CD with multiple CD covers, a deluxe edition CD/DVD, and a high-quality, 180-gram vinyl edition; specifics for all editions will be detailed shortly.

"We hope our fans will like everything about World Painted Blood as much as we do," Lombardo continued. "Recording this new album has been one of the greatest experiences we've had as a band. We were together during the writing process more than we had been for past albums, we worked more collectively, everyone's suggestions and ideas were heard and considered, and that camaraderie is definitely heard in the new album.

    Slayer did a show at the Trocadero in SF CA in the mid to late 90’s. I wish I could be more specific about the year. To have a Slayer show at such a small venue was really pushing the envelope. Whoever was responsible for putting on that show is lucky the club wasn’t damaged permanently! I remember thinking that the stacks were way to big for such a small stage. And I was right! It was decibel warfare when SLAYER started their set! You could almost see the waves of the bass drum! And ...

  • Slayer was direct support for Pantera on this your in the very early 2000's. It's an arena and my seats are decent but not great. While changeover is happening for the Slayer set, I started talking with some dudes named Mike and Pete seated next to me. Our discussion turned to the the insanity of Slayer pits and one of my new friends suggested we rush the pit when the lights go black right before Slayer starts. Playing devils advocate, I point to several police officers ...

A sign of Gary, smiling Tom and entered prepare ... 21:30, the background music stops ... It's gone! A fucking show with a great choice of songs!! The plublic is shaped ... And SLAYER in great shape! The show is apocalyptic! 1:45 of pure bliss and cutting up the ass!! HELLYEAH SLAYER!!
  • I would love to know how Slayer plans a "world" tour but yet isn't coming to the most important city in the world,FUCKING NYC?? Anyone?
  • I was lucky enough to get to go and see the boys play in Camden last night. The show was awesome! Typically tight sounding thrashing Slayer show. Getting to see "Old School Slayer Night" was perfect for me as 85-90 was when my musical taste was developed and I know the lyrics of every album front to back from that time period. Absolutely all my favorites! The pit was a little active throughout the show but I can tell that the Slayer audience is getting a little older as I ...
  • Just saw Slayer in Columbus for the first time, and also the first metal show I've been too. Big eye opener getting clocked in the face in the first 5 minutes, but it was rad as hell. Shit got gnarly and heavy and it was exactly how I imagined it'd be
  • Ok so I just signed up for an account n I am 25 been to plenty of metal shows, super big fan of Megadeth, I've seen them like 5 times. Any way I'm like 5"11' benching 365 n pretty much fuck up shit in the pit!!! So i haven't been to a Slayer concert yet!!! I'm going to see them this Friday in Las Vegas. I hear stories about the Slayer shows my older cousins been to back in the 90's but they don't get down in the pit like I do!! Some ppl like sky ...
  • My first Slayer shows were when they co-headlined Pantera's two final U.S. Tours. I was 15. Went to the show alone, don't remember how I got home a hour away. concerts pre-9/11 were fucking crazy! First thing I wanted to do was get high and mosh, held my own for awhile until some fat kid started skanking and punched me in the mouth. Got cheap shotted in the back by a skinhead, there were a lot of them there for Pantera obviously. I remember making it through WAR ENSEMBLE. The ...

    After being in the Army for four years and missing you guys all four years, YOU GUYS COME TO MASS!! I'll be there and can't wait to fucking mosh my way to hell!!
  • In summer 2011 Slayer was playing the Heavy festival in Toronto so I knew I'd have to make the journey to the big city. The last night's top three headliners (in order of time playing) were Slayer, Billy Talent and then Rob Zombie. Well everyone thought that Slayer was going to close out the festival but to everyone's dismay it looked as if Slayer would technically be opening for Rob Zombie... and Billy Talent. This did not sit well with the hardcore metal crowd of ...

    Good afternoon, I wish I could have contact with the band manager, since they Slayer band is comming to Mexico City I would like to know if they will be willing to do something with low resources young people that is good fan of the band. Please send me an e-mail to
  • I first heard Slayer in 1998. I was 11 at the time. My older brother just bought the Diabolus In Musica tape. I'll probably make a pussy out of myself but at first I was so fucking afraid of this whiteheaded motherfucker on the cover that I didn't want to get anywhere near this tape. But finally curiosity won. I've put the tape in, pressed play and I waited. It was on side A and the first track was Bitter Peace. At first it was normal. Some guitars, some drums. Just music. ...


i want it now. but im poor so cant

I want all the different & i don' t want to wait more.

I think its fair to say we all want the 4 different covers and the deluxe version, so why isn't somebody doing a package where you can order all 4 covers together to make sure you get them? I would definately order it. I love collecting Slayer merch...and I'm sure there's millions of us that do.....

How much longer? It's like waiting for the school holidays when you were a kid!!!!..........

It is finally here. And it was worth the wait. It's not just my excitement speaking but I trully believe this is they're best album to date. It has a bit of everything and more besides. I'll say no more at the moment as you will all have your own copies soon enough and we'll all exchange views then. As it is I'm wasting valuable listening time writing this....ha ha ....

Wow. What an album. Get's better with every listen.....

all slayer fans...check out the underground king of deathrap! NECRO new album DIE! in stores Feb 2010...cop one or DIE!

When are the other covers going to be released ?
Having just 1 of the 4 covers is fucking torture.

World Painted Blood.

When I first heard Psychopathy Red I got it into my head that the entire album would be that angry when it finally got wrong was I.

The album to me is like a creature that changes it shape but in a savage evil twisted way.
World Painted Blood as track 1 gives a false sense of security with its intro but then it punches you in the fucking head leaving the listener (me) almost dazed, the next 3 tracks just leaves you reeling......then another knock out punch with Hate Worldwide and if that's not enough to keep you focused you get a massive punch in the guts with Public Display of Dismemberment.
By now I was thinking that this is enough punishment for any self respecting metal head then Human Strain is without a shadow of a doubt the track that will floor you and leave you speechless wondering "what the fuck have I done to myself this time" or more to the point what the fuck have Slayer done to me this time.
Americon bursts into life and sets your mind up for the onslaught that is Psychopathy Red, Playing with Dolls is the difference maker and the title almost leads you to believe that it will be a nice mellow fuck it is, onto the final act of violence that is Not of this God.

After hearing the album for the first time I was totally shocked thinking Slayer had gone through some form of metal transformation and I remember feeling that this new album would put a lot of critics in their place, after the 18th time of hearing it (in the first day) I felt proud that buying a copy of Show No Mercy (on picture disc) in 1984 would lead me here to 2009 where I am stunned by the recording quality, the creative edge and the brutality that World Painted Blood presents us with.

Thank you Slayer.

A couple of months later and WPB still sounds as good as the first time I heard it. I still think it's Slayers finest album and I firmly believe it will stand the test of time like RIB has. OK it's not genre defining or as cutting edge as RIB was in 1986 but nothing ever will be again will it? I don't think Slayer could have done anything to make it any better (other than maybe giving it to us for free!!!) and I can't wait to see the live show when they reach us here in the u.k.
