Slayer guitarist Kerry King has announced his debut solo album, From Hell I Rise, alongside the debut of the first single “Idle Hands,” which is the world’s first glimpse at the full band lineup.

King’s record will be released on May 17 on Reigning Phoenix Music and features 13 tracks.

“Idle Hands” is a blistering song highly reminiscent of Slayer. It’s no surprise at all considering King had already informed fans that his new music would indeed sound like the legendary ‘Big 4’ thrash group.

“If you’ve ever liked any Slayer throughout any part of our history, there’s something on this record that you’ll get into, be it classic punk, fast punk, thrash, or just plain heavy metal,” King states in a press release.

He goes on, “Even with a record in the can, I’ve still got so many songs that need to be finished. This is what I know how to do…number one being music, number two being metal. It’s been a part of my life for 40 years, and I’m nowhere near being done.”

Listen to “Idle Hands” further down this page, where you will find the lyrics as well.

From Hell I Rise was produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Megadeth).

Wilbur comments, “I didn’t know what to think, you know, it’s Kerry King from Slayer, who I’ve heard a million times. He’s a very strong presence. I wouldn’t say Kerry has an ego, but he has confidence in himself, which is a good thing. That’s what you want in your rock stars and in your band.”

“He never comes off as a jerk or mean guy,” the producer continues, “But he does know exactly what he wants. He doesn’t beat around the bush. He’s like, ‘I don’t want to do that, but I want to do this.’ Very direct, but it comes from a place of confidence, and not from a place of anything else. I really enjoyed working with Kerry.”

Kerry King, “Idle Hands”

Kerry King, “Idle Hands” Lyrics

So begins my revolution
Violence spreads my retribution
Integrate, retaliate
I can’t believe what I see

With my own eyes
Can’t dissect the truth from all the lies
Ideology is at the core
Deceiver or believer
Your faith I don’t need anymore

Where do I get in line?
To question all divine
So many rules to bend
Till the end
Idle hands do the Devil’s work

Hatred is my ammunition
Amplified by my ambition

Here I stand in pure defiance
Fighting back your God reliance dies
Deviance is always on the rise
Welcoming the harbinger of war
Deceiver or believer
Your faith I don’t need anymore

Where do I get in line?
To question all divine
So many rules to bend
Till the end
Idle hands do the Devil’s work

(Lead-Demmel)

Testify that all God’s hatred
Satisfies that nothing’s sacred
Anarchy or blasphemy
Devour Christianity
Once more
Your faith I don’t need anymore

Where do I get in line?
To question all divine
So many rules to bend
Till the end
Idle hands do the Devil’s work

(Lead – King)
