SLAYER Performs In India For First Time; Video Available

Thrash metal legends SLAYER made their Indian live debut last night (Saturday, October 20) at the Vladivar Rock 'N India event in Bangalore.

Multi-camera video footage of the "War Ensemble" performance from the Bangalore concert can be seen below.

Guitarist Kerry King, Chilean-born bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and drummer Dave Lombardo were once again joined by EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt, who has been filling in for SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman for nearly two years while recovers from contracting necrotizing fasciitis, likely caused by a spider bite.

SLAYER recently entered the studio to record two new songs with producer Greg Fidelman for a possible EP release.

In an interview with "Metal Zone" host Nikki Blakk of the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone, King was asked whether Hanneman is contributing to the songwriting process for the new album. "On the last record [2009's 'World Painted Blood'], it was kind of, like, [split] down the middle [between me and Jeff]. On the records prior, it was mostly me. This one's been all me so far," he said. "He's welcome to contribute. It's just a matter of him [putting] something [together] and getting it to us."
