Necrosexual conducted an interview with guitarist Gary Holt of San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans EXODUS on April 18 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the “Metal Alliance” tour with ANTHRAX. You can now watch the chat below.
Holt has spent the last two years filling in for now-deceased SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman who had been on hiatus from the band since early 2011, when he contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease that doctors believed might have been caused by a spider bite. Hanneman almost lost his arm, and was briefly placed in a medically induced coma. After a series of skin grafts, he had been working on his physical rehabilitation.
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.
