KERRY KING Drops Second Album Single ‘Residue’

Share This:

With his solo debut album, From Hell I Rise, set for a May 17 release (Reigning Phoenix Music), Kerry King has unveiled Residue, the project’s brand new single, and first music video. Co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera, who have made videos for JERRY CANTRELL, SEBASTIAN BACH, EXODUS, and KILLER BE KILLED, the video was shot at their downtown Phoenix studio in early April, and features King’s new band – Mark Osegueda/vocals, Phil Demmell/guitar, Kyle Sanders/bass, and drummer Paul Bostaph.

According to Louvau, his concept for the video was simple: “A fiery, bitchin’, heavy fucking metal performance introducing the world to Kerry King’s new project and band members. A no bullsht, no prisoners showcase of the band members, performing while engulfed in flames and surrounded by burning pentagrams.”

“I come from a big fire pedigree,” said King, “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.”
