While going through Facebook, I saw the report that Kerry King might want to do more Slayer stuff without Tom Araya by being replaced by Phil Anselmo.

It does sound a bit excessive. In my opinion, Kerry should just retire the Slayer name and just create a new band with a new name. It would never feel Slayer without Araya on vocals that's for sure.

What do you all think?

We already have a thread about Kerry King's future endeavors:

https://forum.metal-archives.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=133149

This article was already discussed, it was written over a year and a half ago and there's no evidence of it being any more than a rumor.

Phil couldn't sing any of the slayer tunes...his voice is about shot. I watched the vulgar display of Pantera live stream. While not completely terrible, it wasn't that great either.

Kerry has said repeatedly that the next thing he does will not be Slayer. There will be no more Slayer.

Going from Tom Araya to Phil Anselmo feels like the equivalent of Anthrax going from Joey Belladona to John Bush :lol:. At least stylistically speaking.

It's not going to happen but if it did I would actively root for it to be an abysmal failure so that it never happens again.

I don't know if Phil could pull off the Slayer style, but I'm still a huge fan of him and always have been.

His vocals with Scour absolutely kick fucking ass and he's also great with Arson Anthem.

There's audio and video of Kerry King jamming with Pantera from 1989. They also played Raining Blood and South of Heaven. Phil did well with the vocals, but that was 32 years ago. And I know there have been some of those all star jams where Phil has sung on Raining Blood. It's probably the latter performances that'd be indicative of him pulling it off or otherwise.

But this probably won't happen.

Seems like a clickbait

KK knows that he's a one trick pony with the Slayer brand so he wants to milk it as much as he can. He knows that interest will be low for a new band compared with continuing with the Slayer name. It will be a glorified cover band if he ever pushes thru with this idea.

Phil Anselmo is cool man. This could be interesting, I don't doubt that Phil has the talent to pull this off so it could be cool.

I'm pretty fucking over Kerry King's riffs to be honest, they made a thirty year career out of the same fucking style over and over ad nauseum. Not to hate much but fuck, they really haven't done much good stuff since DI IMO.
