Slayer guitarist Kerry King has finally released his debut solo album, “From Hell I Rise”, via Reigning Phoenix Music today (May 17th, 2024). The project’s brand-new video, “Toxic”, which has been co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera, can be seen below.

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

Louvau comments: “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 served in the military and how the increased political landscape affects their mental health which often goes unnoticed.”

This month, the Kerry King band performed its first live show, totally sold out, at Reggies in Chicago. The concert was described as “dark, packed, and exceptionally loud,” everything you could ask for at such a landmark show as this one… a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.” In the days following, the band went from playing in an intimate venue to performing at the huge U.S. festivals Welcome To Rockville (Florida) and Sonic Temple (Ohio), treating the audience to an incredible experience of pure metal firepower.

Now the Kerry King band is ready to embark on a European tour that will start on June 3 — on King‘s 60th birthday. He says: “Can’t wait to be back in Europe, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday. Let’s fucking rage!”

The tour will combine headline shows in the U.K., The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Spain but also festival appearances such as Rock Am RingHellfestTuskaDownloadSweden Rock Festival, and many more.
