Slayer Reveal Metal Eagle Details

(Classic Rock) Slayer have revealed the contents of the Metal Eagle version of upcoming album Repentless. The limited-edition set comes in an aluminum case which weighs 7.8lbs and only 3000 will be made available worldwide. Slayer's 11th album - and first since the passing of Jeff Hanneman - is issued on September 11 via Nuclear Blast.

The label have revealed that the Metal Eagle set will include a deluxe digipak CD which folds out into an inverted cross as well as a Blu-ray and DVD featuring Slayer Live At Wacken 2014 and a Making Of Relentless documentary. Also in the case is a live CD of the Wacken 2014 performance, a poster, an album sticker and a numbered certificate.

Slayer singer Tom Araya recently told Metal Hammer that Hanneman's death brought the band closer together as they worked on the follow-up to 2009's World Painted Blood.

He said: "We've had to open up a line of communication. Kerry's very black and white. I'm not a black and white person, but that's Kerry. We've had to talk and that's not been the case in the past." Read more here.
