Rumors have begun to circulate online that guitarist Kerry King is already working on a new musical project with vocalist Phil Anselmo (PANTERA, DOWN, SUPERJOINT) after SLAYER called it quits last year.
According to Overkill drummer Jason Bittner, who shared some info through Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph’s Instagram “everyone knows by now” that Kerry is working on a new project with Pantera singer Phil Anselmo and his Slayer bandmate, exodus leader Gary Holt.
The piece also notes that “there’s been hushed word for several weeks” about Anselmo and King collaborating.
When asked if he’s “got any post-Slayer projects,” Bostaph replied: “Yes! Something is brewing with a friend of mine that is very familiar to you. I’ll give you three guesses.”
Kerry recently told Guitar World when asked about post-Slayer plans: “Let’s just say… Dean [Guitars] didn’t sign me for nothing!”
We think this is pretty damn awesome.
