In today’s episode of “Kerry Reacts,” Kerry King commented on fans saying Slayer is not the same without Jeff Hanneman and Dave Lombardo and that the band should retire, telling Westword:
“You know how the internet is. So many people say, ‘Jeff’s not here. Dave’s not here. It isn’t the same.’
“I said, ‘Yes, motherfucker. It is the same.’
“I mean, there are some differences. I don’t want to belittle that. But the Slayer machine keeps on going.
He added about making Slayer’s latest album, 2015’s “Repentless“:
“I was really just going for good stuff more than ever.
“95% of it was put on my shoulders for the first time. I wanted to make sure that I had a record that wasn’t only awesome in my eyes, but pretty much bulletproof. More so than ever.” Via MetalWani
