Slayer's Kerry King Says Jeff Hanneman Is 'Worm Food'

(TeamRock Radio) Slayer guitarist Kerry King has slammed the idea that late bandmate Jeff Hanneman's spirit is guiding the band. He believes there's no life after death, and so Hanneman, who died in 2013, can have no further influence on the thrash icons.

King tells The Village Voice in a new interview: "Jeff is worm food. When you die, you go in the dirt. There is no doubt - doubt's called 'agnostic.' I'm not agnostic."

He previously told Metal Hammer that Repentless, the title track of the band's upcoming 11th album, was written about his late colleague - and called it his "Hannemanthem."

Now King reports: "I said, 'You know what? I should write something about how I think Jeff looked at the world, because he looked at the world exactly how Slayer looked at the world.'" Read more here.
