Slayer Guitarist Kerry King Begins Rehearsing With His New Band

Kerry King has officially started rehearsals for his post-Slayer project. There is not much information regarding the band’s lineup, but the guitarist did confirm that he will be joined by Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph.

King told Metal Hammer the following about the project

“You know me, so you know what it’s going to sound like. I played this new song for a buddy, and I said to him, ‘If there’s anything I’ve written in the last few years that sounds like Slayer, it’s this.’ And he said, ‘That sounds like you could have pulled it off of any Slayer record.’ I actually made that riff up backstage at a Slayer show.

We were walking to the stage and I got my phone out and recorded it so I wouldn’t forget it. That actually ended up being one of the last songs that I finished for the sessions, so when that hits the air, or stores, or Apple, or wherever it is that people buy music from these days, you can all play the guessing game discussion about which one it is.”

He also added:

“Had it have been up to me then I’d have been out in 2020. But that thing called the pandemic fucked everything up for everyone. You know, I waited on that, because it had to run its course. I didn’t want to be the guinea pig, I didn’t want to learn how to tour again.

I already did my dues; I don’t want to have to prove myself again. Have I been dragging my feet? Yeah, because I wanted this [pandemic] shit to get sorted. I won’t be dragging my feet much longer.”
