The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco in collaboration with the band’s Tom Araya and Kerry King.
The “Repentless” title track is an ode to SLAYER’s late guitarist, Jeff Hanneman, who passed away in 2013. “I call it the Hannemanthem!” SLAYER guitarist Kerry King said of the song. “I wrote that for Jeff. Oh, dude, it’s fast as fuck. You don’t know what the fuck’s coming!”
He added: “It’s my perspective of Jeff’s perspective. It’s what I think… If Jeff wrote a song for himself, ‘Repentless’ would be it.”
