Ex-Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph has hinted that he’s working on a new project

In a post made to his Instagram telling people to stay home during the coronavirus outbreak, Bostaph answered a fan question asking if he had any post-Slayer plans to share. He responded by saying:

“yes! Something is brewing with a friend of mine that is very familiar to you. I’ll give you 3 guesses…”

There’s some speculation that his response could be related to the rumor that a new band is being formed by Slayer members Kerry King and Gary Holt, and Pantera’s Philip Anselmo. Guessed Overkill drummer Jason Bittner:

“Kerry, Gary and Anselmo cmon – everyone knows by now!”

Bostaph didn’t respond to this or any of the other guesses made by fans. 

Bostaph did, however, mention in the same post that he will have:

“a surprise coming next week to hopefully help with the boredom.”

Slayer wrapped up the final shows of their farewell tour in November 2019. The band released their last album, Repentless, in 2015. It was Bostaph’s first album with Slayer since he left the band in 2001.
