Slayer's Kerry King

Ex-Slayer Guitarist Kerry King Planning To Reveal His New Band In 2024


It would seem that former Slayer guitarist Kerry King is finally getting ready to reveal his long-awaited new project in the new year. King and his former bandmate in the aforementioned thrash metal legends, drummer Paul Bostaph, opted to continue playing together in a new venture following Slayer‘s 2019 demise.

While little is known of the project, there have certainly been rumors to emerge in the years since. At one point Pantera‘s Phil Anselmo was thought to be involved, though those rumors have cooled off in recent years. King also registered an LLC company named Blood Reign, which some perceived may be the name of his new outfit.

This latest development comes from King‘s long-time publicist, Heidi Ellen Robinson-Fitzgerald. The below image taken by Steve Appleford was sent out to the press earlier today, November 06th. It was captioned with “Coming in 2024….” The image appears to depict the chains long worn onstage by King.
