The tracklist for the album is as follows:
1. Delusions Of Saviour

6. When The Stillness Comes
7. Chasing Death
9. Piano Wire
10. Atrocity Vendor
11. You Against You

Guitarist Kerry King said of their new record: “Repentless is my Jeff [Hanneman] tribute, I call it the HannemAnthem. It’s my perspective of Jeff’s perspective, it’s what I think… If Jeff wrote a song for himself, Repentless would be it.”
Former guitarist Hanneman died of liver failure back in 2013, in a Southern California hospital near his home. The official cause of his death was announced as alcohol-related cirrhosis.
Terry Date produced Repentless, and it is Slayer’s first album since their drummer Paul Bostaph returned to the band.
Slayer will be touring the UK in November, tickets can be bought here.
