The mammoth rock 'n' roll celebration to pay tribute to Marshall Amps' 50th anniversary and the life of late mastermind Jim Marshall, has just gotten a little bigger. Former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has been added to the mix, along with Free founding member Andy Fraser and Slayer guitar god Kerry King.
As Slayer are currently on the road with the 2012 Mayhem Festival, guitarist Kerry King has given fans a bit more info about Slayer's next album, which could see a release as soon as early 2013. The guitarist, who also provides lyrics for the band, is hoping to get some work done while on tour before hitting the studio once again at the conclusion of the touring Mayhem Fest.
