EXODUS Guitarist GARY HOLT Talks Family, Playing With SLAYER And Next Studio Album

Keith Lovett of PopCultureMadness.com conducted an interview with guitarist Gary Holt of San Francisco Bay Area metallers EXODUS on April 18 at the Philadelphia stop of the 2013 “Metal Alliance” tour 2013 with ANTHRAX, HIGH ON FIRE, MUNICIPAL WASTE and HOLY GRAIL.

Holt has spent the last two years filling in for SLAYER founding axeman Jeff Hanneman who in January 2011 contracted necrotizing fasciitis, likely caused by a spider bite, and has been undergoing surgeries, skin grafts and intense rehab since.

EXODUS‘ latest album, “Exhibit B: The Human Condition”, was released in North America on May 18, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The CD sold around 4,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 114 on The Billboard 200 chart.

EXODUS‘ previous album, “The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A”, opened with 3,600 units back in October 2007.
