Kerry King Addresses Idea Of Slayer Retiring


(Metal Hammer) Kerry King doesn't want Slayer to retire soon - because he insists there's no chance of a change of mind once they have. He's been asked to discuss the possibility of a split on several occasions recently, after frontman Tom Araya appeared to suggest he was considering bringing his career to an end.

But the co-founding guitarist would rather look towards the follow-up to 2015 album Repentless. King tells KLAQ 95.5 FM: "If I gear-down not to do this, I don't want to come back and do it any more.

"I don't want to be that band that goes away and comes back, and goes away and comes back. I want to play until we're done, and be done with it." He adds: "Hopefully that's not soon." Check out the full interview here.
