Slayer's Kerry King Angers Mayhem Support Bands (Week In Review)

On Tuesday Slayer's Kerry King Angers Mayhem Support Bands was a top story. Here is the recap: Jungle Rot vocalist and guitarist Dave Matrise thinks that Slayer's Kerry King has sabotaged this year's Mayhem Festival tour with his recent criticism of the organizers of the trek and referring to the second stage as the "sh*t stage".

Matrise and members of Kissing Candice and Sister Sin shared their feeling about King's comments with Live Metal late last week. Matrise said, "I'm gonna be truthful - I take it very personal. I'm a longtime Slayer fan, and I hate to say it, but now I'm gonna change my thoughts about Slayer over this.

"It's because of the simple fact that there's a lot of people, including myself, and a lot of bands here that have a lot of money invested in this tour, and we're trying to make our money back, and we're trying to keep this thing rolling. And here's this guy, and he opens his mouth and sabotages the tour, in my opinion.

"And then he talks sh*t about Victory and that's our label as well, and calls it a 'sh*t stage.' Well, if it wasn't for Victory probably getting this stage, this tour would've never even happened.

"That's just my opinion, and if he would get off the bus once in a while instead of charging $20 for a picture or a signing or whatever the hell he does, he'd probably see that there's some really good talent out there, man.

"So yeah, I take it very personal. I think he stuck his foot in his mouth and I hope this turns on him and I hope for the worst. I have had enough - the guy's been runnin' his mouth enough and this is the final straw." Read more of Matrise's comments and the reactions from the other bands - here.
