Kerry King’s Wife Says There Is “Not A Chance In Hell” That Slayer Will Ever Reunite

Slayer played their final show on November 30 and many fans have wondered if the band will stay gone or end up reuniting like all of the other bands that have returned after heading out on farewell tours. Now, while responding to fans on Twitter, Kerry King’s wife Ayesha King said there is “not a chance in hell” that the group will ever reunite. After it was mentioned that Slash was wrong about Guns N’ Roses and that Mick Mars was wrong about Mötley Crüe, she said “Kerry King is not Mick Mars or Slash” and that she “might just have slightly more info” than everyone else. She also added the following when someone said that they don’t believe the recent show will be Slayer’s last: “you can bet on it.” Screenshots of those responses and more can be seen below:

Watch Slayer’s Kerry King Mess Up The Intro To “When The Stillness Comes” Four Times During The Band’s New York Show

Slayer have been playing “When The Stillness Comes” live for many years, but that doesn’t mean a mistake can’t arise every once in awhile. That is exactly what happened during the band’s November 9 show at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. While launching into the track, guitarist Kerry King had to restart it four times, before getting it right. You can see fan-filmed footage of that below. King was playing his new $8,666 limited edition signature Dean guitar at the time, so it’s possible that he was still getting used to the new instrument.

During last night’s (May 1) episode of “The Jim Jefferies Show,” Slayer’s Kerry King made an appearance during a segment on “incels”(short for “involuntary celibates”), who are essentially misogynistic assholes that try to blame women for their inability to get laid. During the segment, Jefferies had King explain how he slept with “hundreds of desirable women” despite his looks. You can watch the full segment below, and see King’s part at about the 5:30 mark.

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]”

Slayer Probably Won’t Record A New Album Until 2018

Slayer still have a lot of material left from their “Repentless” sessions, but a new album is not expected to arrive before 2018. You can check out what Kerry King told Jagermeister about the band’s plans below.

King said the following:

“We’ve got lots of leftover material from the last album, ’cause we wrote so much stuff, and we recorded a bunch of it too. If the lyrics don’t change the song musically, those songs are done. So we are way ahead of the ballgame without even doing anything for the next record. And I’ve been working on stuff on my downtime. Like, I’ll warm up and a riff will come to mind and I’ll record it. I’ve gotten a handful of those on this run. So wheels are still turning. I haven’t worked on anything lyrically yet except for what was done on the last record, so that’s something I’ve gotta get on. But, yeah, ‘Repentless‘ isn’t quite a year old yet.”

He also added:

“Me and Jeff [Hanneman] would usually write ’till we got around the ballpark of a record, and there might be two or three left over, but this time there’s, like, eight left over. Plus a lot of ideas, like half-songs. Like, the first half a song will go with another half a song. So we might be inching up on ten songs already, when I get down and think about it, and that’s very unique for Slayer, and very cool, because can do a one-two punch on this record.”

“We could probably start doing something at the end of next year, but, man, we’ve still got a lot of touring going on next year. So I’m guessing… What’s this… ’16, ’17… I’m guessing it won’t be ’18 before we record anything.”
