Slayer will be celebrating Record Store Day this year with a picture-disc seven-inch that contains their new song "When the Stillness Comes" ahead of the band's new album later this year. The group recorded the song last year in Los Angeles with producer Terry Date.

The single's A-side features the image of a blood-stained skull with the band's name carved into it, while the flipside sports an inverted cross and a live version of their song "Black Magic" – originally released on their 1983 debut, Show No Mercy – that they recorded at Germany's Wacken festival last year. The single is limited to 5,000 copies and will be available only at the participating stores listed on the Record Store Day website on April 18th.

Slayer last released a new song a year ago, when they premiered "Implode" at the Golden Gods Awards and subsequently put it out as a free download on their website. It was the first new song the group had issued since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who died in 2013 of liver failure. Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for Hanneman, and the band also now features returning drummer Paul Bostaph.

34 Montagu Square, in Marylebone, London, is a part of music history. Beatles drummer Ringo Starr leased the ground-floor and basement apartment in the mid-1960s, and Paul McCartney created several Beatles demos there in 1965, including "I'm Looking Through You" from the album Revolver.

"System of a Down review – noir-rock epics and the history of genocide

System of a Down review – noir-rock epics and the history of genocide
Wembley arena, London
The American-Armenian skull-pummelers deliver some worthy political messages amid a messy sprawl of intricate, disjointed hardcore
The entry queues are chaotic, the toilets are overflowing, and the PA pours out a relentless two-hour bombardment of math metal, violent thrash rock and Armenian folk anthems. Yet, if it feels as if Californian skull-pummelers System of a Down are trying to make Wembley feel like its own downtrodden mini-state, we’re soon put in our place. The Wake Up the Souls tour marks the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Armenian genocide – a subject close to the hearts of these four politically voracious Armenian-Americans – and animated histories of that and subsequent genocides in the second world war, Rwanda and Cambodia are played out on the screens during interludes in the set, narrated by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. So, suitably humbled, we endure.
