News: Kerry King Reveals Video For Track ‘Toxic’, Off Debut Album, ‘From Hell I Rise’, Out Now

Jim Louvau

Kerry King finally releases his solo debut album, ‘From Hell I Rise’ via Reigning Phoenix Music, and unveils the project’s brand-new video ‘Toxic’, which has been co-directed by Jim Louvau and his partner Tony Aguilera.

Read our review of the album here.

Similar to King’s acclaimed ‘Residue’ video, which was released last month, ‘Toxic’ was shot at a downtown Phoenix studio and features a fiery, high energy, heavy assault of a performance from Kerry’s new band: Mark Osegueda (vocals), Phil Demmel (guitar), Kyle Sanders (bass) and drummer, Paul Bostaph.

Jim Louvau admits: “We’re at a point where political fatigue has set in and become an issue for most people who live in our country no matter what side of the coin they land on. The lyrics and energy of the song showcase that sentiment, so I wanted to create something visually that almost feels like a trailer for what we are about to experience. I also wanted to address PTSD for people who have serviced in the military and how the increased political landscape affects their mental health which often goes unnoticed”.

Now the band is ready to embark on a European tour that begins June 3rd – on Kerry King‘s birthday. He tells us: “Can’t wait to be back in Europe and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday. Let’s fucking rage!”.

The tour will combine headline shows in the UK, The Netherlands and Germany, and also major festival appearances including Hellfest, Download, Rock Am Ring, Tuska, Graspop, Sweden Rock Festival & more.


Due to logistical issues, the European tour will now conclude on 29th June. Refunds for the cancelled shows are available from the point of purchase.
