Hanneman and his family had apparently been unaware of the extent of condition until shortly before his death. Araya explained that Hanneman would be a part on the album  when King later dismissed the claim saying, "Jeff Hanneman isn't physically playing on this record.
Somebody reported some bullshit. People say shit when they don't know what's actually going on. Even though Jeff's song, "Piano Wire", was recorded during the last album cycle, I played all the guitar.
I've been doing that for years. Since he has no lead on that song, he's not on it. The album's Lonesome And A Long Way From Home - New Grass Revival - Too Late To Turn Back Now process started in Novemberannounced by Lombardo through Twitter.
Frontman Tom Araya later said that the album would be pushed back to a release,  but this idea fell through. In addition, King had noted that two of the new songs had been fully recorded and that there was a possibility that they might be released as an EP,  but the idea was later dismissed.

I'm never blown away by anything I've done musically. I always want to redo it five minutes after I'm done with it. That goes down to songwriting too - it's never going to be perfect.
Nothing's perfect. So yeah, I went in and did all the solos for that Cast The First Stone - Slayer - Repentless in a day. I just sat down Cast The First Stone - Slayer - Repentless a six pack of beer with Kerry and Terry Date. They just let me do my own thing. Tom came in after I had been messing around with a solo for a half an hour and he told me the first take was perfect. I told him they've got to let me know because I'll keep going over it and sometimes you lose a good thing when that happens.
You've got to know when to just let it go and keep it whether it's raw or rough or perfect or maybe there a little bit of magic in there. In an interview, King described "Chasing Death" as being about alcoholism : "it's like people who drink too much. They don't help themselves out so they're chasing death.

Slayer not only has something new to say on Repentless, but a new way to say it.
There are hardcore devotees who never want their favorite bands to change; this is for them. But again, given all that's transpired sinceSlayer get points for even pulling this off. All Have You Seen Your Mother Baby, Standing In The Shadow?
