Kerry King will release his long-awaited debut solo album From Hell I Rise on May 17, and is now streaming the second single “Residue”. The single comes alongside a music video co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera.

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 bullshit, 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 Kerry 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.”

Added Louvau: “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.”

Kerry King‘s new band features Death Angel vocalist Mark Osegueda, former Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph, former Vio-Lence and Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel, and former Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders. Kerry King will release the Josh Wilbur-produced album From Hell I Rise on May 17 via Reigning Phoenix Music, and you can pre-order it right here.

Kerry King will hit the road with Lamb Of God and Mastodon (who are playing their 2004 albums Ashes Of The Wake and Leviathan in full), as well as Malevolence, this July and August. Get your tickets here.
