Guns N' Roses' first album in 25 years is in good shape as guitarist Slash says he's writing all the time.

The iconic guitarist hasn't appeared on a GN'R album since 1993's 'The Spaghetti Incident?', as 2008's 'Chinese Democracy' was recorded by frontman Axl Rose with a host of other musicians.

However, the 'Sweet Child O' Mine' band's reunion 'Not In This Lifetime World Tour' has been going so well that Slash has been inspired to make new tunes for his band.

On the prospect of releasing another record with the group - also comprised of Duff Mckagan, Dizzy Reed and Richard Fortus - he said: ''We want to do something. We've been on the road this entire time, we have another leg coming up in November in Asia, then we're going to start looking at what the next step is going to be.''

And on what's been providing him with inspiration for the new music, he added: ''I write when we're on the road, in dressing rooms and on the bus, wherever I happen to sit for any span of time.

''I've been working on things that have to do with horror movies and thrillers.

''It tends to be orchestrated.

''I was reminded of the significance the band and the records have had for people. That is almost a surreal kind of feeling.

''After being away from it for so long, and going out and having the enthusiasm and love that people have show the band, it's very humbling.

''You feel very fortunate being involved in a situation that has stood the test of time for so long.''

The 53-year-old rocker says the band have genuinely enjoyed being in one another's company again.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''There was really great camaraderie from the get go since we got back together. It's been really healthy''

Slash previously revealed that Axl too has been penning lyrics on the road and that he doesn't see them calling it a day any soon with the wealth of material they can in the bag.

He said: ''I think we're going to go well on into the future.

''I mean, Axl's got a ton of s**t that he recorded already, so we're going to get in there and just start getting into that thing, and then if we do a record and then do a tour, I could see that cycle going on endlessly.''
