Kerry King Says The Next Slayer Album Will Have A Song About “Trump’s Nonsense” & “Republicans Just Fucking Things Up”

Kerry King was recently interviewed by snowboardmag.com, and revealed that he wrote a new song about “Trump’s nonsense” and the Republican party “fucking things up” for the next Slayer album. He said the following:

“I think Trump is a more individual ideology, for sure. The band, you know, whenever I try and address political songs, which we do, I can’t say we don’t, but I will base it on the US Government because that’s the government I know, but I try to make it vague enough so that anyone in any country can relate to it.

I hate my chancellor, or, I hate my prime minister, I hate my government, I try to make it so that anyone can get something out of it, because if it was pinpointed at America, only Americans would love that song – or hate that song depending on what I say in it. I have one on the next record that is basically about Trump’s nonsense, but it’s really going to be about the republicans just fucking things up.”

Kerry King On The Possibility Of Releasing A New Slayer Album In 2018: “It’s Conceivable—But I’m Certainly Not Gonna Promise It”

Slayer’s Kerry King was recently interviewed by Revolver, and was asked about Slayer’s new album plans. According to him, “it’s conceivable” that the band may release an album in 2018, but he did say he’s “certainly not gonna promise it.”

King said the following:

“…’Repentless‘ isn’t even two years old yet, though it seems like it is. But from that session, there are six or eight songs that are recorded—some with vocals, some with leads, but all with keeper guitar, drums and bass. So when those songs get finished lyrically, if the lyrics don’t change the songs, they’ll be ready to be on the next record.

So we already have more than half a record complete, if those songs make it. This is actually the most prepared we’ve ever been for the next record in our history; there’s no reason to not do more work, because it’s already more than halfway done. Just write four or five new songs, and give the others some attention, and we’ll be good to go. If we get a down period of time, which I know is coming at the end of this year, maybe we’ll focus on that and get to it.”

He added the following when asked if it would be released in 2018:

“It’s conceivable—but I’m certainly not gonna promise it, because every time I do, I make a liar of myself! [Laughs]”

Ukrainian Zoo Puts Up Statue Of Slayer’s Tom Araya

Apparently the XII Months Zoo in Demidiv, Ukraine has randomly put up a statue of Slayer’s Tom Araya. On top of that, the statue also comes complete with a huge Slayer logo and some lyrics from “Dead Skin Mask.“

The following said about that (translated from Russian):

“Dear friends, we have finally finished our discussions and alterations, and can say – a sculpture by Tom Araya in our park is completed and submitted for your critical inspection. I can not tell you how hard it was and how much we argued about the accuracy of, say, shape the beard 🙂 or Tom guitar.

I put the results of our work on the official website of Tom, I have heard that he is now back from Chile and the rest before the European tour – perhaps peep us. At least mileyshaya Sandra Araya (wife) told me that she liked. . God forbid. . . I also told her how things were arguing about any details on the sculpture and even joked that thankfully there that at the concert – and if the sculpture called, for example, Tom on the beach. . . .

In general, write (those who are interested) as we have got.
and I am pleased that Ukraine has paid attention to the whole army (mullions) Slayer fans and Tom. Take a look at his website 🙂 and all approval

Propaganda, war ensemble, Burial to the BE ;)”
