Kerry King has released a brand new single and music video entitled “Residue” (Watch Below), the second single from his forthcoming solo album titled “From Hell I Rise”. The video is directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera, known for their work with artists such as Jerry Cantrell and Sebastian Bach, and was shot in their Phoenix studio.

The video highlights King’s new ensemble, which includes drummer Paul Bostaph (formerly of SLAYER), bassist Kyle Sanders (HELLYEAH), guitarist Phil Demmel (ex-MACHINE HEAD), and vocalist Mark Osegueda (DEATH ANGEL).

Kerry King Debuts Fiery New Video “Residue”

Jim Louvau described the video concept as “A fiery, bitchin’, heavy fucking metal performance introducing the world to Kerry King’s new project and band members. A no-bullshit, no-prisoners showcase of the bandmembers, performing while engulfed in flames and surrounded by burning pentagrams.”

King, reflecting on the theme of the video, stated:

“I come from a big fire pedigree, and my music works with fire. I’ve always written horror-type music, so it made sense to incorporate fire into the first video, where you get to see the entire band, which I think is just awesome. I think fire goes hand in hand with the devil, and I’m no stranger to talking about the devil.”

Louvau added: “I knew this would be the first time that the world was going to see the band performing together, so I wanted to create a fast-moving visual assault. Pyrotechnics and Kerry King clearly go hand in hand and seem to fit like a glove, so Tony and I wanted to create something that felt familiar but also something new and exciting. I also knew I could get away with certain visuals like a burning pentagram.”

The album “From Hell I Rise” is scheduled for release on May 17 via Reigning Phoenix Music. All tracks were penned by King, with the recording sessions led by producer Josh Wilbur at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles. Wilbur’s production credits include work with prominent bands like KORN and LAMB OF GOD.

The tracklist for “From Hell I Rise” includes:

1. Diablo
2. Where I Reign
3. Residue
4. Idle Hands
5. Trophies Of The Tyrant
6. Crucifixation
7. Tension
8. Everything I Hate About You
9. Toxic
10. Two Fists
11. Rage
12. Shrapnel
13. From Hell I Rise

Alongside the new album from Kerry King, it was also recently announced that Slayer will be reforming in 2024 for two shows at Louder Than Life and Riot Fest, currently, these are the only known planned shows for Slayer, but it’s anticipated more could be announced as demand remains high to see the thrash metal legends live.
