SLAYER: Footage From Finland's TUSKA Festival Posted Online

Fan-filmed video footage of SLAYER's June 29, 2008 performance at the Tuska festival in Helsinki, Finland can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with writer Joel McIver (Total Guitar, Metal Hammer), SLAYER guitarist Kerry King stated about the group's plans to record a new studio album, "We're supposed to have one ready at the end of the year! There's been talk of all kinds of odd things, because the record industry changes every day. We've talked about maybe putting out a couple of songs from an upcoming record through iTunes, so we can play something new on the Unholy Alliance III tour. You know, that's not so far outside the realm of possibility. As far as how much we're gonna get done by the end of the year? I have no idea. . . Jeff [Hanneman, guitar] has a couple of things [written for the next album]. I've got ideas that I've never finished, so I wanna get back to working on those. Some of them are really cool. I haven't recorded anything yet because I want to finish the songs first — I like them to have a beginning and an end before I demo them."
