New Metallica Album Doesn't Make Sense Says Slayer's Kerry King

(Radio.com) Kerry King recently spoke with the Irish Times about Slayer's eleventh studio album, Repentless, which was released on September 11. The interview also focused on Slayer's former guitarist Jeff Hanneman, the potential for new music and King's thoughts on thrash metal brethren Metallica.

The interview eventually turned to Metallica, who hasn't released a new album in seven years. "Funny thing is, I brought that up last night," King shared. "We were sitting around having some shots and I said, 'When's Metallica doing a new record?' When you think about it, it's kind of like us. You don't have to put out a new record," says King.

"People will come up to a certain point, because you've got such a catalogue. You can just keeping changing songs. They are really living on the first five records, I think. I'm not sure a new record makes sense for them. Death Magnetic was a nice version compared to St. Anger. Hopefully, they keep going along that line and get some of the riffs back." Read more here.
