The four original members of Slayer—Tom Araya (bass/vocals), Kerry King (guitars), Jeff Hanneman (guitars) and Dave Lombardo (drums)—have entered a Los Angeles–area studio to record what will be the band’s first new studio album since the 1990 Seasons In the Abyss.

Rick Rubin, who began working with the band in 1986 on Reign In Blood, has taken the helm as executive producer. Josh Abraham (Korn, Velvet Revolver, Atreyu) will produce the album.

The as-yet untitled album will be released on Slayer’s longtime label, Rubin’s American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records and is expected out this fall.
