Slayer's Kerry King mentions Avenged Sevenfold


Slayer guitarist Kerry King mentioned Avenged Sevenfold in a new interview with Unrated Magazine. You can read an excerpt below.


About what the perfect mix of bands would be for a Mayhem Festival, Kerry King said: "We've been on great ones. In '09, it was Slayer and Marilyn Manson; that's a good thing. Slayer and Slipknot in 2012. Us and King Diamond, it's great and everything, but I'm not sure King's a headliner to where, like… What was it a couple of years ago? Avenged Sevenfold and Korn. Those are two legitimate headliners. That's people coming out and saying, 'I get it.' And their second stage had a legitimate headliner, like Anthrax or Machine Head, somebody awesome. And now, like Gary said, our second stage is what used to be a fourth stage, and I think the kids are protesting by not buying tickets for it."
