Album: Repentless (2014)


  • The first new Slayer song in five years, the band debuted the tune at Revolver magazine's 2014 Golden Gods Awards. The tune was originally penned with the intention of being included on an unreleased EP that was supposed to coincide with the group's appearance on the 2012 Mayhem Festival tour.
  • The song features lyrics concerning the "extermination of mankind." "It's not directly connected to the Mayan Calendar, but everybody always talks about the world ending," guitarist Kerry King told Artist Direct in 2012. "Whether it's with war or disease, that's where I went with it."
