Slayer have posted a new trailer for their upcoming short film, “Slayer: The Repentless Killogy”, on Youtube. The video is featuring a little interview section of Slayer guitarist Kerry King.
The most controversial member of the band, Kerry King has revealed what he really think about being the bad guy of the band. Here’s what he said:
“I think, by being able to make songs about things maybe other bands are scared to write about. It keeps us edgy.
I’ve said it a million times — I enjoy being the bad guy. But it’s more than that — it’s being able to say things the kids are feeling, and no one else is saying it. So I think that’s one of the things that makes Slayer close to the fanbase.
So many times, when we do meet-and-greets, people break down. And it’s, like, ‘Jesus Christ, man! I just play guitar. What the hell?’ But, to them, it’s way more than that — way more than that. So, as the fans say, it’s Slayer.”

Back in January 2019, Kerry talked with Louder Sound, and told how he started play guitar. He said:
“When I started to play guitar I got into heavy music, because I had older sisters so I knew what heavy music was. I found Judas Priest on the radio, various songs from the British Steel record, so I had to go and do my homework because the songs you heard on the radio were always Breaking The Law and Living After Midnight, and they’re not exactly the heaviest Priest songs.
Before that I was really into Van Halen. I probably saw them six times on the first three albums, and that’s a pretty good place to start for a guitar player! It was a challenge to be like Eddie Van Halen back then, and it’s still a challenge now
