New Slayer Album Delayed By Rick Rubin

(Classic Rock) Slayer guitarist Kerry King says progress on his band's next album is being held up by producer Rick Rubin.

And he's hinted there may be doubts that Jeff Hanneman will contribute to recording sessions.

King's comments come after iconic deskman Rubin suffered a range of critical comments over the past year. In 2011 ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons said he was responsible for delays to the release of their album La Futura, reporting they'd been pushed to "the brink of frustration" and admitting: "The band is wondering, 'Where is this thing? When do we hear it?'"

In the same year Graham Nash accused the producer of having ruined Crosby, Stills and Nash recording sessions. Earlier, Corey Taylor said he'd never work with Rubin again and Muse thanked him for showing them how not to record an album.

Now King tells Eddie Trunk: "The whole hold-up now, as with every record we ever do, it seems like Rick Rubin changes distributors. We're left in limbo until he lands somewhere.

"Realistically we're without a deal right now. We plan on staying with Rick, but he's working out his distribution. When that gets settled we'll be recording."
