Kerry King

Kerry King (born June 3, 1964 in Los Angeles, California) is best known for his work as a guitarist in the band Slayer. Over the years, Kerry King's guitar style has remained the same, giving him a very distinctive sound. On earlier Slayer albums up to and including South of Heaven his playing focused more on speed and chaos than melody. However, in his post-Seasons In The Abyss work, Kerry has managed to capture more feel to his guitar work, showcasing more diverse and melodic styles.
