Kaaos TV conducted an interview with Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph at the South Park festival in Tampere, Finland on June 10. Check it out below.

On whether he is pleased by the fan response to Slayer's latest album "Repentless":

Paul: "Absolutely. Whenever you're putting a new record out, you're not sure what other people are gonna think. You know you like it, but it's always nice when you get positive feedback from people about the fact that they like it."

On whether he was nervous about being accept by Slayer's fans again after being away from the band for so long:

Paul: "I don't think I was nervous about whether fans would take me back or not. I think it was more or less… The focus was mostly on writing a good record. It's got nothing to do with me; it's gotta do with the band. And, you know, in between the time I did 'God Hates Us All' [and I rejoined Slayer], I did a couple of good records also; I also did a Testament record, 'The Formation Of Damnation', and I also did Exodus' 'Shovel Headed Kill Machine'. So I've been out there. It's not like I just went away. I did some good records, so I think that I built up some faith with some people who followed my career, as well as the bands that I played with."

Hate to say this, but "Repentless" isn't really Slayer.
