Slayer's Kerry King on Ghost: "I hate their fucking music"


Slayer guitarist Kerry King was recently interviewed by Artisan News and talked about Ghost, you can read some excerpts below.


Kerry King said: "Dude, I love the imagery… I love it. I just hate the fucking music. I like them as people. You know, they've been on many tours with us. I just… I can't get into their music. And I tried. I wanna like 'em, and I can't. I got their CD from Brian Slagel from Metal Blade. It was when Gary Holt first started playing with us, and I picked up Gary. And I'm, like, 'Brian said this is awesome, man.' So we put it in, going to practice. It wasn't awesome. It wasn't awesome for me. It wasn't awesome for Gary either. I'm, like, 'Well, maybe the first song sucks.' [Laughs] And we went to the next one. It's just not for me. I know Ghost is hugely popular, and I'm very happy for their popularity. And, like I said, they're the nicest guys you'll ever meet. It's just not my music. And I've tried so hard. [Laughs]"
