Slayer To Use Jeff Hanneman's Final Work On Next Album

(Classic Rock) Slayer are planning to make use of late guitarist Jeff Hanneman's last work in their next album. He died in May aged 49 after suffering liver failure. He'd been unwell for two years, with Exodus axeman Gary Holt standing in for him at live shows. Holt remains with the band, alongside returned drummer Paul Bostaph, who replaced Dave Lombardo earlier this year.

But Hanneman had been working on new material and Slayer plan to include some of it on what will be their eleventh studio album. Frontman Tom Araya tells Loudwire: "I haven't had the privilege of going through his audio files at the moment, but that's something I plan to do.

"He had several ideas together that he'd presented to us in the course of the past year. There was one complete song that he'd managed to send to everybody, that I thought was really, really good and communicated that to him.

"There's stuff that would be great to listen to, just to see what's there and how we can possibly use what he had done." He had more to say.
