“I got lots of metal left in me!”

“I got lots of metal left in me!” - 2006-04-24

2006-04-24 - Australia's <strong><a href="http://www.themetalforge.com/" target="_blank">The Metal Forge</a></strong> recently conducted an interview with EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:<br><br>On when fans can expect the follow-up to 2005's acclaimed &quot;Shovel Headed Kill Machine&quot;:<br><br>&quot;We're already writing riffs for the next one. We won't have any big delays in between this one either. We've become quite the workers nowadays. I'm fired up. I got lots of metal left in me!&quot;<br><br>On the departures of drummer Tom Hunting and guitarist Rick Hunolt:<br><br>&quot;Tom's fine. His illness was all mental &#8212; he had a mental breakdown. Last time I spoke to him was on Christmas, and he says he's doing better but he doesn't sound all the way there yet. Rick decided to quit but he's got his own personal substance-abuse issues. Yeah, it's been difficult but y'know, the only thing I can do is just soldier on. And now, this lineup is just so strong and everybody is just so involved and into it that we all can't wait to make the next album. Lee [Altus, HEATHEN] came in when we started recording just to do the solos and he wasn't involved in any of the writing. Paul [Bostaph, ex-SLAYER] came in when most of the stuff was written and finished. We're all real excited about actually collaborating together.&quot;<br><br>On how the band's new lineup is getting along:<br><br>&quot;There are people who have been really close to this band for years who have seen us together and they say we seem closer as people than the old lineup. We actually spend more time together and we don't pull into a town and everybody kinda goes and does their own thing. As much as I love those guys, with the exception of Zetro &#8212; I don't love him but I don't hate him anymore either &#8212; but Tom and Rick I love; but this bunch of guys, we have a great time together. It feels like we've been together for 15 or 20 years.&quot;<br><br>On how the record industry has changed since the band started 25 years ago:<br><br>&quot;With 'Bonded By Blood', everything was real underground, y'know? That was on a label started by two fans, y&#8217;know? Now, the business I still hate many aspects of because it is a business and an art at the same time. But I'm wiser now and I don't allow other people to crunch numbers for me. I pay attention to that shit. When I was younger, I trusted everybody else to do what was in my best interests and that wasn't always what was the case.&quot;<br><br>Read the entire interview at <strong><a href="http://www.themetalforge.com" target="_blank">http://www.themetalforge.com</a></strong><br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=678"><u>EXODUS</u></a>&quot;
