EXCLUSIVE: Slayer’s Kerry King Surprises Crowd

Last week’s Hall of Heavy Metal History induction ceremony has no shortage of contributing artists and musicians.

Showing up unannounced, Slayer co-founder, bald badass, and metal icon Kerry King showed up to honor Metal Blade Records CEO/founder Brian Slagel by presenting Slagel with his achievement and award. The mood of the crowd changed as King thanked Slagel for his contributions to his own success with Slayer. I was certainly blown away by his presence -I feel like Slayer is an essential part of metal education and modern metal history. It’s very fitting that King was there, and much like the other award winners – presented the award with thankfulness and and combination of respectfulness with a laid back attitude.

Slayer’s name is synonymous with thrash metal staples Angel of Death and Raining Blood.
