Slayer’s Kerry King Launches “Toxic” Music Video


Slayer guitarist Kerry King has officially released his debut solo album, “From Hell I Rise“. The thrash metal legend surrounded himself with talented roster of familiar faces to bring this eponymous project to life, with the following players joining him in the venture:

Vocals: Mark Osegueda (Death Angel)
Guitars: Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head)
Bass: Kyle Sanders (HELLYEAH, ex-bloodsimple.)
Drums: Paul Bostaph (ex-Slayer, etc.)

Josh Wilbur (Korn, Lamb Of God) produced this new outing, which is available now through leading digital service providers and more. Helping signal boost the arrival of this record is the below debut of a music video for the track “Toxic“. It was shot in Phoenix, AZ and was co-directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aquilera. Louvau commented:

“We’re at a point where political fatigue has set in and become an issue for most people who live in our country no matter what side of the coin they land on. The lyrics and energy of the song showcase that sentiment, so I wanted to create something visually that almost feels like a trailer for what we are about to experience. I also wanted to address PTSD for people who have serviced in the military and how the increased political landscape affects their mental health which often goes unnoticed.”
