Kerry King’s New Album From Hell I Rise

Kerry King’s debut solo album, From Hell I Rise, will be released on May 17.

“If you’ve ever liked any Slayer throughout any part of our history, there’s something on this record that you’ll get into, be it classic punk, fast punk, thrash, or just plain heavy metal,” King said at the time the record was first announced. “Even with a record in the can, I’ve still got so many songs that need to be finished. This is what I know how to do…number one being music, number two being metal. It’s been a part of my life for 40 years, and I’m nowhere near being done.”

The album features 13 tracks, 11 of which were played last night (May 7).
