Finlands premiere Metal gathering, Tuska have added former Slayer guitarist, Kerry King to their bill for 2024. 

King will join headliners, Pendulum, Bring Me The Horizon and Parkway Drive this coming June.

As reported on Overdrive earlier this month, King’s has released the first new music from the album with single “Idle Hands” (see below)

King’s solo debut album, ‘From Hell I Rise’  will be released in May via Reigning Phoenix Music, and along with the maestro himself, the lineup boasts such heavy hitters as drummer legend Paul Bostaph, ex-Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel, Hellyeah bassist, Kyle Sanders and Death Angel vocalist, Mark Oseguda.

The 2024 Tuska billing is finalised by a legion of Finnish heavy specialists; melodic doomsters Kaunis Kuolematon, progressive doom act The Abbey, metal synth-/retrowave unit NightStop, melodic death/black metal hybrid serving Suotana from the Arctic circle, brutal and technical old school death metal outfit Malformed and modern melodic metal ambassadors, Shereign.

Tuska KVLT bands, who redeemed their festival slots by participating in Tuska KVLT activities at last year’s festival, will still be added to the program.
