Slayer's Tom Araya had the following to say about their new album:
"I'm hoping that whenever it comes out, nothing major happens, it's like, 'I wonder what's going to happen this time around?' "
"This album is actually like a culmination of everything we've done. There's one song that I'm thinking will surprise everybody, because of the song itself. I'm not going to say why, because you have to keep that element of surprise, dude. Musically, it's going to blow everybody away. It's going to trip everyone out. It has all the elements of everything we've done. No one's going to be disappointed with this record. It's fast, heavy — maybe faster than anything we've done before. It's going to be brutal. It's what everyone expects from a Slayer record."
Araya said a track called "Eyes of the Insane," is perhaps the most political song on the album. The song was inspired by an article he'd read in an issue of Texas Monthly magazine. "The song's about the effects of war on some of these soldiers," he said. "This article — and it was a pretty trippy article — it really affected me. The entire magazine was devoted to soldiers of this new Iraq conflict that's going on. The effect that the war has had on some of these kids who're coming home and having a tough time dealing with what they've seen — I mean, some of these kids are traumatized and mentally destroyed by what they've seen. The magazine also ran an entire list of the soldiers from Texas who've died. It was several pages with pictures of these kids. It blew my mind."
Araya also had the following comment on the Unholy Alliance Tour: "For the heavier crowd, you're definitely going to get your money's worth [from this tour]"
