Trash metal band Slayer is re-issuing their 2006 album "Christ Illusion" with never-before-released track under a new distribution.
Trash metal band Slayer was lying restless when a track called "The Final Six" was not finished in time to be included in their 2006 album "Christ Illusion". The four-piece can now relax as a special edition including the track will be released July 24 via American Recordings, an imprint of Sony BMG.
Singer Tom Araya is actually more into 'relieved' than happy since the original album label Warner Records has put a break in its work. He said, "When we got word (Rick) Rubin was gonna move over from Warners to Sony, my initial response was, 'Sh*t ... now nothing's gonna happen with the album, (Warners) literally stopped ... not working the album, but they slowed it down. We just had to wait it out, and now everything's cool."
Apart from "The Final Six", within the package are a new version of track "Black Serenade", a DVD containing "Eyes of the Insane" music video and other footage. The original album was the band's first record that marks drummer Dave Lombardo's return.
