"Paul's a great drummer and a good friend, and we're very happy that he's decided to rejoin the band," said Tom Araya.

"I'm very excited to be rejoining Slayer," added Bostaph. "We spent a very intense ten years of our lives together, had a lot of fun, made a lot of great music, so for me, this feels like coming home."

The official cause of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman's death has been ruled as alcohol-related cirrhosis.
We've just learned that the official cause of Jeff's death was alcohol related cirrhosis.

Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo is not on the band's current Australian tour due to legal discrepancies with his band mates and management. Read his statement below.
I want to personally apologize to all of our fans in Australia who have bought tickets for the tour expecting to see me in my usual place on the drums.

So that you all know the truth, as of the end of the business day on February 14th, I was notified that I would not be drumming for the tour in Australia. I’m saddened, and to be honest I am shocked by the situation.

Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayer’s tour income was being deducted as expenses including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band...
