Slayer part ways with Producer

2014-04-25 by ScuroFantasma | 21 Comments
After 28 years with producer Rick Rubin, Slayer have announced that their new album will be the first since 'Reign in Blood' not to feature the producer.

Tom Araya offered up some brief reasoning stating:

“Rick has played a huge role in our career – we've made some great albums with him. But today is a new day. Record companies don't play the kind of role they once did, and we really like the idea of going out on our own, connecting directly with our fans; and Nuclear Blast is fired up about taking on that challenge with us.”

However, Kerry King blames Rick for delaying their new studio project; “The hold-up now, as with everything we ever do, it seems like Rick Rubin changes distributors. We’re left in limbo until he lands somewhere.”

So I guess this means the new album won't sound like shit.... We just have to wait and see if it will be played as shit though.

Terry Date produced that for whatever reason.

It absolutely did. Nice reasoning behind your statement though. This is totally relevant seeing how they've had such a popular relationship together for almost 30 years. As much as we all hate Slayer now days, they're still one of the biggest heavy metal bands EVER and Rubin played an intricate role in their sound.

All this information was already announced in the press release that I linked in like the 2nd comment of the article about Implode.

Rick was instrumental in a crucial stage of their career, particularly in Reign in Blood. At this time the producer is indifferent. Life goes on.

"...we really like the idea of going out on our own, connecting directly with our fans [with shitty songs like Implode, which is probably better than everything else on the record]."

Good, at least the album won't sound like it was made for a car radio.

I don't have high hopes for their next album. It always seemed to me like Jeff Hanneman was the better songwriter. It does seem to be confirmed, at least, that there will be some material from him on there, though.

Not the worst loss, Hanneman was obviously the worst one. Interested to see how the new album sounds though with all the upheaval.
