EXODUS: Drum Tracks Completed

June 11, 2005

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"Paul [Bostaph, ex-SLAYER, FORBIDDEN] completed all his drums tracks yesterday and I'm just blown away by what he can do behind the kit. One of the greatest I've ever had the pleasure of watching perform in my life. Just total mayhem on the drums, but so grooving at the same time.

"That means I'm up next and I salivating at the thought of tracking guitars. I went down to the studio to set up my gear today and I have got to tell you, It's pure, unadulterated joy when you have put up a wall of sound like I did today. Plugged in a few different combinations of my Marshalls and Peavey xxx's and it was fucking crushing. We have tomorrow off but Sunday won't come soon enough for me."

EXODUS' as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Tempo of the Damned" is being recorded at Trident studios in Pacheco, California and will mark the band's first release with new singer Rob Dukes. Mixing duties will be handled by Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, KREATOR). Among the tracks set to appear on the CD is "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" (working title),which Holt has described as "one of the fastest EXODUS songs of all time."
