2006-05-16 00:00 - Having recently been confirmed for the Lorca Rock festival on June 17th in Murcia, Spain, EXODUS are currently on tour through North America in support of their late 2005 release, Shovel Headed Kill Machine with Full Blown Chaos and Subzero. If you're looking for a night of pummeling pit action, then bite the bullet and get yourself out to a show!! If you get hurt in the pit, word from the road is that riff machine Gary Holt also specializes in medical evaluations...<br><br>When Full Blown Chaos vocalist Ray Mazzola woke up with a knee the size of the cantaloupe in Florida, he asked road veteran Gary Holt to take a look at it. Gary instantly told him he was bit by a black widow. At the hospital, they verified that he had indeed been bitten by a Southern Black Widow. How that for having a trade to fall back on?<br><br>Besides using his time on the tour bus to work on riffs for the next album (and he SWEARS there will be no delays on this one!), Gary recently spoke to Nashua Telegraph correspondent Shawn Macomber about the current state of the thrash metal genre:<br><br>&quot;If I was doing this for some quick buck - and let's be clear, there aren't a whole lot of 'em involved in this, I make a living at it but I'm certainly not rich - it would show. People would see right through it. They would listen to our records and hear the sound of someone past their prime doing it just to make a dollar. You have to love it for it to be honest. I still do.&quot;<br><br>&quot;It seems like timing [for a comeback] is good right now, but, you know, I never really concerned myself with what everyone else was doing. Of course, that doesn't mean I don't think it's great that after the death of this whole nu-metal atrocity young bands are embracing the kind of music we pioneered and actually doing their own version of it. I couldn't be happier, and some of these great new bands - Shadows Fall, Lamb of God, Hypocrisy, The Haunted have become very good friends of mine. But I'd be doing my thing either way.&quot;<br><br>&quot;I'm not surprised [to see the resurgence in thrash metal] because I always saw nu-metal as a really, really bad trend that would have no staying power whatsoever,&quot; HOlt continued. &quot;The most popular bands from that era are long dead and forgotten. Fred Durst's 15 minutes of fame are way up. I bet Paris Hilton won't even return his calls anymore.&quot;<br><br>To read the entire interview, visit <strong><a href="http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060427/ENTERTAINMENT/104270032" target="_blank">this</a></strong> location!<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=678"><u>EXODUS</u></a>&quot;
