Kerry King Was Angry About Slayer’s Retirement: “It Was Premature”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Slayer’s Kerry King further opened up about the band’s retirement. The guitarist says he was angry about the whole situation and that he feels “it was premature.”

King said the following when asked how he reacted to talk of retirement:

“Anger… what else? It was premature. The reason I say ‘premature’ is because my heroes from my childhood are still playing! I can still play, I still want to play, but that livelihood got taken away from me.”

He continued:

“But, anyway, on to the next chapter, I guess. We were on top of the world, and there’s nothing wrong with going out on top of the world, it’s a good way to go out. So, bravo for that. But do I miss playing? Yeah, absolutely.”

King also added the following about the musical direction of his new project, which is rumored to be called Blood Reign:

“If you know my work, you know what it’s going to sound like.”
