More New Slayer Alert: Stream and/or Download "Cast the First Stone"

It doesn't matter who you are: If your single's cover art looks like a piece of amber from Jurassic Park (albeit, in this case, with a little blood slopped on), we're listening. 

As a bonus, this song, "Cast the First Stone," is by Slayer. The thrash archdaemons have Repentless, their first album since 2009 and since the death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman, coming September 11; this is the fourth track we've heard from the LP. Listen up top; there shall be shred.

"Cast the First Stone" starts like an album-opener, although it's actually the fifth track. Once the intro's through, drummer Paul Bostaph (back for the first time since God Hates Us All, replacing original skinsman Dave Lombardo once again) kicks in his furious, perfectly mic'd double bass attack and Kerry King sets the riffs on full POUND MODE.

While you're spinning, scope out our most anticipated fall 2015 albums (Tom Araya's merry band is indeed on there) and the eight most terrifyingly metal sets at this year's Mayhem Festival. (Slayer also included.)
