Kerry King Planing January Studio Entrance for Slayer
Guitarist Kerry King of metal icons Slayer announced plans for January studio entrance, revealing that seven tracks are already lyrically complete. Chatting with DC Heavy Metal, the axeman explained: "Well you know if you ever read my interviews I’m always the optimist, haha. It just never always pans out but my plan is to be in [the studio] in January. That's what I want to do. Me and Paul have, I think we've demoed like eleven songs and I think there’s parts of fourteen, fifteen that are just mine." Kerry continued, "We just gotta get a plan set and follow it. But we've got way ahead of the game. I've got seven songs done lyrically and I've never had that many before we hit the studio so it should be, whenever we get in it should be a quick process." Asked to comment on Jeff Hanneman's passing, King stressed the importance of continuing forward, opening up about losing someone he's been making music for three decades. "Ummm... Well you know it just... Untimely death just sucks and it's the guy that I made music up with for thirty years," he said. "That super sucks. He went early. It sucks. Heh, that's all I can say, it sucks. "My guitar tech died the year prior so death has become no stranger to me and you just gotta deal with it," Kerry explained. "You know I’m not set up to where I can just go away and live in my house and not work ever again. You just pretty much gotta tighten your belt a little bit and get on with life. It's a horrible thing but we gotta trudge forward."
