Slayer’s Kerry King and Barry Kerch of Shinedown Download

26:16 Download May 14th

I had the good fortune to speak with Slayer’s Kerry King about his new solo album, From Hell I Rise, which drops on May 17th. What I’ve heard has been a brutal onslaught, like you’d expect!

He told me why he chose that name for the album, there were other ones, but he picked this one, as it ends the album on track 13. He also told me about the flavor of the album. In case you haven’t heard anything from it, I’ve included the two songs they’ve dropped from the album below.

We also discussed how he got the members for the band, which includes Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph, HellYeah’s Kyle Sanders, and Phil Demmel rounding out the band. He said this was his “A Team” and he got the players he wanted.

We also talked about his upcoming 60th birthday, which will be the first show in Europe. Over his 60 years, he’s made lots of memories, some he can’t remember….like a story of the early days of Megadeth that David Ellefson told me about.

Barry Kerch is up next. Shinedown has a lot going on this year, including a new hot sauce. Symptom Chipotle Garlic Sauce is their latest creation. Barry talks about how this came to be, and the fact that he’s a big hot sauce fan. 

We also talked about new music from the band, the album he thinks best represents what they’re all about, The Rock Hall, and more. 

It’s always great to talk with Barry, even if this is my first time interviewing him solo….. video to come. 

Thanks for listening!
