New KERRY KING And DEICIDE Albums Share Pretty Similar Cover Art

In a synchronicity that has set the metal world ablaze, both Kerry King and the titans of death metal, Deicide, are poised to unleash new sonic onslaughts upon the masses this year, all under the banner of Reigning Phoenix Music.

Mark your calendars, for Kerry King’s inaugural solo offering, “From Hell I Rise,” which is set to wreak havoc on May 17th, while whispers in the underground suggest that Deicide’s forthcoming opus will descend upon eager ears on April 26th. But it’s not merely the release dates that have tongues wagging; it’s the striking similarity between their album covers that have left jaws agape and minds reeling.

The comparison, highlighted by the venerable Old Deicide Facebook page, juxtaposes the visceral artwork of Kerry King and Deicide’s album covers, igniting a fervent debate among metalheads worldwide.

But let’s delve beyond the artwork. King’s solo venture boasts a lineup that reads like a who’s who of metal royalty. With Death Angel’s powerhouse vocalist, Mark Osegueda, behind the mic, and the thunderous beats of Slayer’s own Paul Bostaph on drums, the stage is set for a sonic onslaught of epic proportions. Add to this the talents of former Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders and the shredding prowess of ex-Machine Head and Vio-lence guitarist Phil Demmel, and you have a lineup that promises to redefine the boundaries of metal.

As King himself elucidates, the album delves into a myriad of themes, ranging from the religious to the war-torn, all delivered with the ferocity and intensity that have come to define his illustrious career. “From various religious topics to war entries, from heavy riffage to punky anthems, from doom-laden dirges to spine-chilling atmospheres,” he declares, “this record is a sonic rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. Whether you’re a die-hard Slayer fanatic or a casual metalhead, there’s something on this record that will resonate with you.”

With Herculean speeds achieved and a sonic palette that spans the spectrum of metal’s diverse landscape, Kerry King’s “From Hell I Rise” stands poised to etch its name into the annals of metal history, solidifying his status as a true icon of the genre.
