This morning Slayer publicist sent out the above photo of Kerry King’s chains that he left on stage at the band’s final show at the Forum in 2019. The quote with the photo taken by photographer Steve Appleford read “Coming in 2024….”

We know that Slayer bassist and frontmant Tom Araya was ready to call it a day for the band. We also know that guitarist Kerry King was not ready to retire. So now all metalheads can ponder the thought and have something to look forward to in 2024….
