Kerry King of Slayer

August 5, 2007 by  
Filed under Interviews

slayer2With a massive career spanning over twenty six years, speed metal warriors Slayer recently re-released their album Christ Illusion with a bonus track and live DVD footage.  Christ Illusion was their fastest billboard charting album and the first album in over ten years with the original lineup of Kerry King (guitar), Tom Araya (lead vocals, bass), Jeff Hanneman (guitar) and Dave Lombardo (drums).  And oh yeah, they won a Grammy as well.  That’s right…Grammy award winning artists – SLAYER.

Never one to shy down from a little controversey, Slayer has teamed up with shock rocker Marilyn Manson for the most anticipated tour of the summer.  Each not without their share of critics, good and bad, they are taking their show on the road and will undoubtedly leave their mark at each stop.

Slayer guitar slinger Kerry King took some time to talk to TWRY about the Slayer legacy and 26 years of kicking ass as well as a look at the tour and the future for Slayer.
