(Classic Rock) Slayer guitarist Kerry King has admitted that the band considered giving up on the album format. They thought about drawing a line under their studio career in the light of diminishing sales and increasing piracy - but in the end decided to keep going. They released 11th album Repentless last year.

King tells RVAMag: "We definitely thought about not releasing new music any more. Maybe doing what Down did, and release four songs before every tour. But really, until the time comes that albums are obsolete, you better believe Slayer's going to be making records."

He accepts that his band are living on their past legacy to an extent. "But so is everyone else - yet we're the ones trying to push ourselves forward." Read more here.
