EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"Day four now and Paul [Bostaph, ex-SLAYER, FORBIDDEN] has been pounding so hard it has to be heard to be believed! If you could hear what he's doing after just three weeks rehearsal and four days in the studio you would not think it possible. Simply amazing. Out of eleven songs he already has finished eight. I'm more stoked than ever because I know I get to start dialing in guitar tone real soon. Mabe I'm biased but I'm looking more forward to that than anything! For me at least that's when the fun begins.
"Maybe soon I'll start giving out some songtitles but for now you will just have to wait. They are there, I'm just holding out for now. This record, without any shadow of a doubt, will be the most pummeling thing we have ever done!"
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."
