Slayer are also releasing a Record Store Day (4/18) single this year. The A-side will have new song "When the Stillness Comes," which is also set to appear on their TBA new album, and the B-side is a live version of "Black Magic" from their 1983 debut Show No Mercy, that they recorded at Germany's Wacken festival last year.
In related news, former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo's band Philm is currently on tour. They played NYC at Saint Vitus this past Monday (anyone go?) and will return here this coming Monday (3/2) at The Stone.
