    We've known for a while now that Kerry King has plans to continue on with music following Slayer's decision to call it quits in 2019, and it seems like he's been hard at work in 2020 to make a new project a reality.

    In a new Q+A video with Dean GuitarsKerry divulged some info about 

    “I’ve been very, very lucky with riffs in 2020. Maybe because I can’t go anywhere - I don’t know - but riffs have certainly not been a problem. And looking forward into the future, what that means for me is I’m gonna be able to cherry-pick the best stuff. And it’s good stuff - I’ve got more than two records’ worth of music, but to be able to go through that and cherry-pick the best 11 or 12… that first record should be smoking.”

    King also spoke of his own lyrical input to move the project forward:

    “Right now, I’m the only lyricist, because I’m the only one writing music, because I’m not positive who everybody is that’s gonna be playing with me. So it’s all on me at the moment. So, actually, I’ve actually gotta cherry-pick those songs, pick my 10 or 12 favorites and actually start trying to put lyrics on them, just to move the process forward.”

    Rumours were floating around back in March that  Phil Anselmo (ex-Pantera, Down etc.) and Kerry's former Slayer bandmate Paul Bostaph would be in the new band, but clearly not even Kerry King himself knows who will be a part of it just yet. You can watch the full interview below:
