Slayer have released their 12th studio album Repentless and they did so on September 11th, the anniversary of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. That date is also significant because the ‘God Hates Us All’ album actually came out on September 11, 2001 – the very same day as the awful tragedy. Slayer choosing that date once again was an interesting decision but that’s Slayer being Slayer and you can’t tell Slayer what to do can you?
