Metal Hammer published an article in July detailing everything that fans can expect to hear from Kerry King’s new band.
“Kerry King is a true icon of heavy metal,” wrote journalist Stephen Hill.
“The former Slayer guitarist remains one of this genre’s most instantly identifiable and beloved figures, even though it’s now been four long years since his band split. We’ve not heard much from him since Slayer’s implosion, but one thing we do know (and that he really enjoys reminding us of every time he does pop up) is that he’s working on new music.”
