Kerry King Wants To Like Ghost's Music But Can't

(Classic Rock) Slayer's Kerry King says he "hates" the music made by Swedish metal outfit Ghost. The guitarist admits that while he loves the mysterious band's imagery, he can't stand their sound. King doesn't hold back on giving his opinion on Ghost's work, despite Slayer and Papa Emeritus III's crew sharing the same management company - The Rick Sales Entertainment Group.

He tells Artisan News: "I love the imagery, I just hate the f***ing music. I like them, they've been on many tours with us. I just - I can't. And I tried. I wanna like 'em, and I can't.

"I got their CD from Brian Slagel from Metal Blade. It was when Gary Holt first started playing with us, and I picked up Gary. And I'm, like, 'Brian said this is awesome, man.' So we put it on, going to practice. It wasn't awesome. It wasn't awesome for me.

"I'm, like, 'Well, maybe the first song sucks.' And we went to the next one. It's just not for me." Read more here.
