Slayer’s founding guitarist Kerry King is one of the most instantly recognizable and well-respected musicians in thrash/punk/metal, and over the past near 40-years, has pioneered some of the most brutal and revolutionary music ever created. King wrote or co-wrote some of Slayer’s most beloved songs including “Mandatory Suicide,”Repentless”,”Hell Awaits”,”Disciple”, and “Raining Blood.” Known for his allegiance to the Oakland Raiders, his love of snakes, and his taste for Jagermeister, King is outspoken, opinionated and authentic to the core.
I’m super stoked to be part of the Dean Guitars family. This has been an insane long time coming! Together we’re going to create some amazing guitars that Dean, Slayer, and Kerry King fans will be as excited as I am to play them. It’s gonna be a wild ride for years to come!
