Kerry King Says Slayer Never Got Sided Like Megadeth

Band Photo: Slayer (?)

U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine recently conducted an interview with SLAYER guitarist Kerry King. Several excerpts from the chat follow:

Metal Hammer: Shouldn't you be releasing a record soon? It's been four years since "God Hates Us All".

Kerry King: "It seems like everybody under the sun says, 'We want a new record,' but at the same time, they keep saying, 'We'd really like you to come back on tour.' That shit bumps everything on the backburner. The funny this is Dave [Lombardo, drums] and me have had a 10-song demo we did up at his house that's been lying around since March 2004. I know Jeff [Hanneman, guitar] has written a couple , and I've written a couple more since then, so this week we're going to start the process of getting back together and nailing this thing. With luck, we'll start recording by September. I'm hoping to work with Dave Sardy, who was with us for 'Undisputed Attitude'. Lombardo wants Rick Rubin for drums, and I've no problems with that because, in my opinion, it's what he's best at. But I think we're all pretty much agreed that the overall producer will be Sardy."

Metal Hammer: Is Lombardo back for keeps now?

Kerry King: "As far as I know, Dave is back in the band. It was 12 years we were apart, and that's 12 years of growing up for everybody. Actually, I think we're probably a better band because of it. It seems to me like Dave's having a great time, and I know he gets up in front of some of those 30,000 crowds and thinks, 'Man, this rocks!' he's playing better than he's ever played."

Metal Hammer: It's every metal geek's dream. The original, class-of-1982 SLAYER lineup reunited.

Kerry King: "Exactly. Having Dave back in the band is one of the highlights of my whole time in SLAYER. There are kids that could've been into us for over 10 years that never got to see us the way we are meant to be. I just saw ANTHRAX at one of those Euro festivals with Joey [Belladonna] — and I liked John Bush to death, y'know, he was a great singer — but something just happens when Joey plays. As for [JUDAS] PRIEST, when Ripper joined, I didn't see 'em once."

Metal Hammer: Having been around for almost a quarter of a century, what do you think SLAYER did right that the other pioneers of the thrash movement did wrong?

Kerry King: "Well, we never took time off from the thrash movement like METALLICA did. We didn't get sidetracked by pop music like MEGADETH did. We didn't lose our frontman like ANTHRAX did. I probably felt competition with those bands at the time thrash was taking off, but we always knew that none of those bands were better than us. We just went out and kept doing our thing."

Metal Hammer: What do you think went wrong for METALLICA?

Kerry King: "One word: 'Load'. But also, whenever you think enough of yourself to play with an orchestra, that's when you're too big. People say to us, 'When are you guys going to do that?' And I'm like, 'Never.'"

Metal Hammer: You've had your fair share of run-ins with MEGADETH over the years.

Kerry King: "People say, 'What's your problem with [Dave] Mustaine?' To which I say, 'Well, he's a cocksucker, for one thing.' But my problem with MEGADETH is, I don't know who that band is anymore. It's like the METALLICA thing. Who's METALLICA? Is METALLICA the band that did 'Master of Puppets' and 'Ride the Lightning', or is METALLICA the band who got to the point where they felt they could put out 'Load' and 'Reload'? It's lie, 'Who are you?'"

Metal Hammer: How long can you keep this up? It's hard to imagine SLAYER not being around.

Kerry King: "It's hard to put a time scale on it. I do know I can't do this for another 25 years. We're more of a physical band than a band like [BLACK] SABBATH, who can keep coming back. Tony [Iommi] is a great guitar player, but if you put a time-lapse camera on him, he'd probably move 10 feet the whole show. We can't be like that. If we had to come and do a show when I was 60, I'd probably bust a vertebra."

Kerry is god, he is right ! when he sys about metallica anthraz and megadeath, cos we allways kew that BELLADONNA(joe) was the front man of anthrax they will never be the same as metallica will never be, and megadeath as metallica had an oath that they have broken . so if call it artistic way to do music, thats ok, but dont pretend that they have respect from the metalian crew.

I have one thing to say, SLAYER have NEVER disappointed me. Unlike when I was a junior in high school and an album like LOAD came out with the METALLICA name on it and I was stricken with grief. Where was my band? I felt betrayed. I have since re-gained my respect for METALLICA ,because I am older now and have realized they could not handle their success. SLAYER on the other hand, lets just say that when I was 11 yrs old and I picked up South Of Heaven for the first time, my life changed forever. Kerry can talk all the sh** he wants. SLAYER are the last band standing. No metal band on the planet can hold a candle....well maybe Sabbath and Maiden.

Kerry really does talk a little too much and act like an elitist metalhead, but at least we know he's passionate about METAL and doesn't mince words. The other band that goes back to the early days of thrash and hasn't gone astray is Testament, and Slayer should take them out on a tour sometime!

Nah Slayer are magic and will always have a strong loyal fan base as they will always bring out the same album. That's not me being wide, it's a compliment. They do what they do really well so why should they go about trying to change and do something new?
Kerry King is a mouthy bastard but sometimes you need that to kepp your profile high when you haven't released an album since 2001. I love Slayer but they need to get an album out.

I think it very very safe to say that neither Slayer, nor Metallica or Megadeth are as impressive and compelling as they once were.

They're older, they've played with trends (Grunge, Radio-rock, Nu-metal, even sh**ty Garage-rock production quality) and they lack that fire in the belly thing that makes records like "Ride the Lightning", "Master of Puppets", "Peace Sells", and "Reign in Blood".

f*** it.

Move on.

Enjoy the great records of the past and the still-good live shows while we can.

Find new bands that have the passion Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica once had.

It is f***ing out there.

On your back look on to me
You'll see genocide
Face from death more than insane
Profane pleading cries
Watch you die inside watch you die

God send death end misery
Preach no love of ministry
Pray for sin a shattered faith
Down on your knees
Your screaming out to die

Death is over due
Nothing can save you
A morbid symphony
Hearing you lie there screaming
Taking life from you
Is all I wanna do
Desire so deranged
This is what lives inside me

Putrid blood flows through my veins
To thrive on demise
Voyeurs' lust watching the pain
Touching you inside
Bleed you f***ing dry
Bleed on me

Death's design blood splattered wall
Face melting one vicious whore
Twisted figures flesh from bone
Down on your knees
Your screaming out
To die

Death is overdue
Nothing can save you
A morbid symphony
Hearing you lie there screaming
Taking life from you
Is all I wanna do
Desire so deranged
This is what lives inside me

Clawing at the eyes of god
You taste your death in hand
Your fingers bleed in vain
Your scream-in your grave
Clawing at the eyes of god
You pierce your throat and hands
You've gone insane with pain
Your blind screaming for your god
Pathetic god

Death's design blood splattered wall
Face melting one vicious whore
Twisted figures
Drown your mind in pain

-At least they can say though "all our records didn't sound the same" - some were good, some were sh**. Now that they've done experimenting with their sh** albums, they can try and put out a decent record. They can't just say "oh well, we still have our respect after making this sh**ty album because we're Metallica(or whatever band)". It doesn't work that way.

For someone who is supposed to be so BADDASSS it sounds like he is cryin' like a little b****. A truly great musician is confident in his own accomplishments and does not feel the need to tear down other musicians just to build himself up. Why does he have to go there? Did he run out of intelligent things to say? ( I am sure that I will get quite a few of the same kinds of remarks from some of the people in here who have equally less intelligent comments to throw around..) He should talk out of his guitar and not out of his a s s!

Hey King, you say other bands did this, other bands did that.... SO F U C K I N' WHAT? Talk about yourself and what YOU did. Actually, don't just talk, try DOING something, like putting out that album you keep talking about. Where the H E L L is it?? You gonna just keep touring and playing the same old S H I T until you are 60? I am starting to think so!! You say you are gonna work on the album this week......yeah right! We heard that before. I think you need to stop running your f u c k i n' mouth and start recording some k i c k - a s s music! Let's just see if you can back up that big mouth you got on you.

OK, I really like Slayer alot, but after "Seasons In The Abyss", Slayer has not done anything for me. Not saying that the music sucks, I just prefer Slayer 1982-1991, sorry guys but thats my take. maybe with Lombardo back we can get back the old Slayer chemistry? Cause I'll tell you what, "God Hates Us All" was probaly thier worst album to date.

He made those kinds of comments, because he was asked those kinds of questions. I think he was just trying to say that Slayer will never go down the same road as the other old school thrash bands. and they will not market there music to a differant type consumer only to gain $$$$. You guys take everything too serious and get defensive way to easy. You guys remind me of my Ex-wife (b****) .At least there is still hope for another kick a$$ Slayer album. unlike other old school thrash bands!!!

SLEEZE be realistic, it's all about the $$$$$. Bands don't just spend their own cash going around performing for all of us for free do they? It would be nice if they did. You said: "they will not market there music to a differant type consumer only to gain $$$$." Well, I happen to remember several years back when Slayer admitted in an interview that they don't really believe in what most of their songs are about, they are just doing it for the money, because that type of music is what sells best ....yeah, they actually said that. No big deal tho, it's mostly about making kick a s s metal that we will all go buy so that bands can make the big bucks. There aint no sin in that.. It's called Capitialism and Marketing strategies.
The f u c k i n' American way! Who cares as long as they make metal?!!

Slayer has always kicked ass. unlike Megadeth which half of the songs are crap Metallica needs to go back and rediscover itself caused they f***ed up on load and reload both were complete sh**. Mustaine is too f***in whiny . alot of metal went to sh** with this metalcore sh** the riffs are decent but the vocals suck . Black label society and slayer are the best bands of today. and there vinnie paul is trying to get out a dime dvd coming called dimevison + Rebel meets Rebel which is a mix of vinnie paul, Dimebag, and david allen coe. they should be out by cristmas.

can't take anything way from slayer f***ing amazing metal act! HOWEVER they have'nt exactly shown much diversity in they're music. the last few albums from metallica, megadeth and slayer have been pretty f***in below standard. i'm sure i'm not alone in saying that. i mean metallica have not put a good record for nearly a decade and where 2005 and now, (if they wait another 5 years two decades) they're live sound is a f***in joke! if dave mustiane sacked any more members he would probably sack himself, and slayers choice to go open tuning on god hates us all makes the whole f***ing album sound like the same song! (don't get me started on st anger) . in mustianes credit least he has never collaberated or associated himself with sh** HOP. ALL THREE BANDS NEED A GOOD KICK IN THE a$$ AND NEED TO LOOK AT A SITE LIKE THIS WHERE THE TRUE VOICES SPEAK AND CLEARLY THEY'LL SEE THAT WHAT THERE DOING NOW IS NOT WHAT FANS WANT TO HEAR. OR IF THEY'RE TRYING TO APPEAL TO A WIDER AUDIENCE (not including slayer) DON'T PUT OUT A WHOPPING PILE OF TOSS LIKE LOAD OR THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO (motorphyco is pretty f***ing laughable and the video whhhh, don't waste three minutes of your life). it must be difficult for the cassic metal acts of metal acts of today to repeat past succeses but it's even more difficult to watch and hear a decline in the band you have listened to and believed in your whole life. and for a metal fan life begins when you discover the music, ask any metal fan what they listened to or did before they discovered the unity of the metal. NOTHING BECAUSE IT'S f***ING RELIGON A WAY OF LIFE! SO PLEASE PLEASE BANDS OUT THERE GET YOUR f***ING ACTS TOEGETHER AND GIVE US SOMETHING WE DESERVE! PS to all fans don't support the Kerrrrap channel or mt f***ing v unless you another decade of sh** radio kid friendly music, those kind of videos are for f***ing posers whom i'm sure musically stephen hawkins could a better song. EAT THAT ALL YOU f***ING SCARFF WEARING EMO p***ies!

Mustaine is great making riffs but I really don't enjoy majority of his songs "propably too complex to a normal metalhead to listen or they just lack teh balls" Megadeth has always had the top notch players that really have talent. well, except for the singing part that mustaine has always done. Mustaine seems to be a smart dude, but maybe a little arrogant. Metallica (Hetfield mostly and Lars)H as made Albums that contain almost just great songs with ballsy sounds "Kill em all, Ride the lightning, Master of puppets" now you have to remeber that some of the riffs or songs in these records are partially or entirely made by mustaine
AJFA is also good but it isn't as great as the first three because the mixing in the AJFA is f***ed up you just can't hear Jasons bass and that makes the album sound flat and Jasons not Burton, from ajfa IMHO metallica has made crap that does give me little or none good vibes.
Well I can't tell if Kerry is that great at playing guitar but he has the attitude, and so does the rest of slayer have, they don't pretend to be anything higher or do pop/blues songs to have a greater audience or boost the recordsaling, they do what they are best at. METAL!
Anthrax... well, I have to say I have liked their music that much.

81. Kerry King all the f***in way writes:

f*** me, most of you guys have got it all wrong. Slayer are the greatest of the big three of the 80's, and they haven't become complete corporate sell outs like the rest of those toss pots. I can stand Metallica, the OLD stuff though, master of puppets is a good album, it's just really not up to reign in blood though. Slayer are the immortal, their old stuff lives on like nothing else, their new stuff is just getting more and more gutsy. Metallica, Megadeth so on need to wake up and realise they are a disgrace to the thrash genre they hold their names to. Slayer equal thrash metal, without slayer, metallica and sh** would probably be playing f***ing some emo sh** next if they didn't have to try to keep up with slayer. oh yeah btw metallica need to find their balls and get some f***in solos back in if their ever going to try to win back any of my respect for them. Megadeth i have never liked, as far as i'm concerned mustaine can rot in his own corporate sellout mind. Slayer are the only band that have stayed true to the thrash genre. Guys, face facts. Slayer own the thrash genre. Slayer are thrash genre. And their thrash metal is what keeps any metal head listening to music. Slayer are NOT in it for the money. jeez, do you think that they would have kept going if they wanted to be douchebags and be sellouts. Slayer do it for the fans, they do it for Thrash and they do it to stay true to themselves and try to keep some sort of respect in the Thrash genre, cause the rest of the big three f***ed it up!

Kerry King is the greatest thrash guitarist out there, he CAN mouth off about other bands, because he is the man.

82. Bostaph is my god writes:

Agree with 81. In my opinion, Slayer is the only metal band in this discussion that hasn't sold out in one aspect or not, or ultimately changed their tune. Araya has the best metal voice in existance, which he uses well. Slayer know what they are and aren't and don't try to pretend anything. For example, some of you think King is a d***head. Well damn, he might be but at least hes not afraid to be himself. And for one, he speaks his mind: there isn't any of this political correctness crap. And for nothing else, you have to respect him for that.

PS Bring Bostaph back!

If any of you think for a second that Kerry King gives a sh** about what you think about the Mustaine comment he made, think again even though he was in Megadeth before the Slayer thing happened ,it was a cheap shot to make but what he said was correct, not about the c***sucker thing but about how they have stayed... they stayed true to what they do and that is that....As far as Megadeth is concerned I really like the new material . I have met Kerry a few times and I can tell you first hand he does not give a sh** about what you think he does this for himself and that is all....besides if matched tit for tat with the intelect of Mustaine and that of Kerry you would see who is smarter ....Kerry should just keep his f***ing mouth shut ...I asked Jeff Hannabomber about the whole Megadeth thing once and he siad that after all the years of doing this, that the fact that Megadeth got on Ozzfest and not Slayer that first go'round cause they had a record released was kinda bullsh** and it did piss him off, but that was Sharon Osbournes choice , and she always gets what she wants. I love Mustaine and Kerry ... Kerry was out of line to sling sh** at Dave who tried to help him back in the day by alowing him in Megadeth which didnt last long cause at that time they were both realy f***ed up on dope ... whats going on with Dark Angel?

Slayer can't really talk sh** about other bands considering they haven't released anything great since the last time Dave was in the band - 15 YEARS ago. The albums with Paul just didn't really cut it, they were good, but... well let's just say there was too much filler. Granted, they never sunk as low as Megadeth or Metallica (and Anthrax always sucked), but come on.

And as far as ragging on Metallica for playing with an orchestra; what's wrong with having a little musical ambition? credit to Slayer for staying true to what they want, but don't rip on others because they don't want the same.
