SLAYER frontman Tom Araya will take part in an online chat on Monday, March 20 at 1:00 p.m. at ESPGuitars.com.

The four original members of SLAYER — Araya, Kerry King (guitar), Jeff Hanneman (guitar), and Dave Lombardo (drums) — recently entered a Los Angeles-area studio to record what will be their first new studio album since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss". Uber-producer Rick Rubin, who helped solidify the much-emulated SLAYER sound beginning with their genre-defining 1986 classic "Reign In Blood", has taken the helm as executive producer of the project. Working closely with Rubin will be Josh Abraham (KORN, VELVET REVOLVER, ATREYU) who will produce the album.

Jeff, Tom and Kerry have been writing songs for this new album since they wrapped their last North American tour in September 2004. Working songtitles include "Catalyst", "Cult", "Supremist", and "Consfearacy".

On June 6 in San Diego, CA, SLAYER will kick off a seven-week summer trek, "The Unholy Alliance Tour ­ Preaching to the Perverted", also featuring LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON and CHILDREN OF BODOM (who will rotate the second and third slots), and THINE EYES BLEED who will open the shows.

Usually I call someone who handles all vocal duties a frontman. What else is he besides a frontman? A bass player, yes. Is there something else you had in mind? I agree, the chat sounds f***ing cool, but I hope there are good questions to which they can provide good answers. I'll see you Tri-State area motherf***ers at the June 16th showing of the Unholy Alliance Tour in East Rutherford.
