Slayer’s co-founding guitarist Kerry King is one of the most instantly recognizable and well-respected musicians in thrash/punk/metal, and over the past near-40-years, has pioneered some of the most brutal and revolutionary music ever created. King wrote or co-wrote some of Slayer’s most beloved songs including “Mandatory Suicide,” ”Repentless,” ”Hell Awaits,” ”Disciple," and “Raining Blood.” As a member of Slayer, King was also the recepient of four Gold Albums, two Gold and one Platinum longform videos, and five Grammy nominations with two wins in the category of Best Metal Performance.  


Slayer’s final tour wrapped on November 30, 2019, in the band’s Los Angeles hometown. But the night marked a new beginning for King. The band co-founder wasn’t nearly finished; he had much more brutal and provocative music brewing, stages to dominate, heads to roll.  King’s sound and vision manifest in the 13 songs on From Hell I Rise, the first solo outing in King’s four decades of slaying the metal universe. His particular brand of blunt power, incisive lyrical themes, and aural assault will finally be unleashed on May 17, 2024.


Known for his allegiance to the Las Vegas Raiders, his love of snakes, and his taste for Jagermeister, King is outspoken, opinionated and authentic to the core.  Metal flows in King’s veins, he knows how to write what he writes, and he has no interest in changing that.  In perpetuity, Kerry King is a self-proclaimed “metal kid.”
