Slayer rocker Jeff Hanneman's official cause of death has been listed as alcohol-related liver scarring.

The guitarist passed away in a Los Angeles hospital on 2 May (13) aged 49, and (09May13) now it has emerged he succumbed to alcohol-related cirrhosis, or an irreversible scarring of the liver.

In a post on Slayer's official website, Hanneman's devastated bandmates admit they were unaware of "the true extent" of his liver problems until their pal was facing death.

The statement reads, "We've just learned that the official cause of Jeff's death was alcohol related cirrhosis. While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent Necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being (after a spider bite in 2011), Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life."

The stars go on to refute rumours Hanneman was set to undergo an operation to help relieve his condition, and insist he was optimistic about making new music.

Slayer add, "Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving - he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record."
