With his solo debut album, From Hell I Rise, set for a 17 May release via Reigning Phoenix Music, today KERRY KING unveils ‘Residue,’ the project’s second single, and first music video. Co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera, who have made videos for Jerry Cantrell, Sebastian Bach, Exodus, and Killer Be Killed, the video was shot at their downtown Phoenix studio in early April, and features KING’s new band – Mark Osegueda (vocals), Phil Demmel (guitar), Kyle Sanders (bass), and Paul Bostaph (drums).

Discussing the video, KING states: “I come from a big fire pedigree and my music works with fire. I’ve always written horror-type music, so it made sense to incorporate fire into the first video where you get to see the entire band, which I think is just awesome. I think fire goes hand-in-hand with the devil, and I’m no stranger to talking about the devil…” 

Said Louvau, “I knew this would be the first time that the world was going to see the band performing together, so I wanted to create a fast-moving visual assault. Pyrotechnics and KERRY KING clearly go hand in hand and seem to fit like a glove, so Tony and I wanted to create something that felt familiar, but also something new and exciting. I also knew I could get away with certain visuals like a burning pentagram because it’s important to keep pissing parents off and keeping the spirit of metal alive.”

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.”
