KERRY KING REVEALS VIDEO FOR 'TOXIC' FROM DEBUT SOLO ALBUM 'FROM HELL I RISE'

PHOTO: Jim Louvau


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 nearly-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.'  Known for his allegiance to the 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 has no interest in changing that.  In perpetuity, KERRY KING is a self-proclaimed “metal kid.”


KERRY KING has released his solo debut album, From Hell I Rise via Reigning Phoenix Music, and unveils the project’s brand-new video 'Toxic', which has been co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera.


Similar to King’s acclaimed 'Residue' video, which was released last month, 'Toxic' was shot at a downtown Phoenix studio and features a fiery, high energy, heavy assault of a performance from Kerry’s new band: Mark Osegueda (vocals), Phil Demmel (guitar), Kyle Sanders (bass) and drummer, Paul Bostaph.


Jim Louvau admits: “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”.
