Exodus Announce New Guitarist Lee Altus

After recently confirming Rick Hunolt's departure from Exodus, guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the Exodus forum:

"I'd like to take a moment to welcome to Exodus our newest member, Lee Altus. Lee has been a great friend of mine for many years and is also one of the greatest guitarist I've had the pleasure of knowing. He was not only the best guy for this job, he was the only one. No one else was ever considered. His leads are totally ripping on the new album and I am looking very much forward to working with him on new music soon. He is a rhythm crusher as well as a shred machine so things are going to be heavy as hell! We start rehearsals Wednesday and I can't wait. My moving is done and I am chomping at the bit to get the show on the road."

Exodus have set "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" as the title of their upcoming album, due to be released on October 4th.

Exodus Frontman Issues Recording Update

Exodus frontman Rob Dukes has posted the following update on the progress of the recording sessions for the band's new album:

Just checking in to let you know where we are at... Paul [Bostaph, drums; ex-Slayer, Forbidden] is done — fucking killed it. Gary [Holt, guitar] — rhythm tracks done...fucking awesome. Jack [Gibson, bass] — has one song left ...fucking sick... Gary's done a few leads and just shredded them. I'm done with three tracks and everyone is stoked.

Exodus are currently recording their new album at Trident studios in Pacheco, California. The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Tempo of the Damned" will mark the band's first release with 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."

Exodus recently parted ways with longtime drummer Tom Hunting after Hunting was taken ill and had to be hospitalized several times.

Exodus Completes Drum Tracks

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

Paul [Bostaph, ex-Slayer, Forbidden] completed all his drums tracks yesterday and I'm just blown away by what he can do behind the kit. One of the greatest I've ever had the pleasure of watching perform in my life. Just total mayhem on the drums, but so grooving at the same time!

That means I'm up next and I salivating at the thought of tracking guitars. I went down to the studio to set up my gear today and I have got to tell you, It's pure, unadulterated joy when you have put up a wall of sound like I did today. Plugged in a few different combinations of my Marshalls and Peavey xxx's and it was fucking crushing. We have tomorrow off but Sunday won't come soon enough for me.

Exodus Guitarist Issues Studio Update

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

Just getting up and getting ready to head back to the studio but I thought I'd give everyone an update first.

Yesterday was day one and it could not have gone any better. Paul's [Bostaph, ex-Slayer, Forbidden] drum sound is fuckin' HUGE! I think, and I don't think Paul would argue this point, that it's the biggest sound he's ever had. Everybody is stoked! We actually laid down a few songs last night before calling it quits for the evening so we could listen back today and see if anything can be improved before we start laying the drums down for good, and I have got to tell you, Paul is fucking amazing. We have given him the green light to just go wild and it's pummeling!

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).

Exodus To Enter The Studio

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

Just letting everyone know we are hitting the studio June 4th and all systems are go! In only nine rehearsals, Paul [Bostaph, Ex-Slayer, Forbidden] has all the songs down and everything is crushing! We are recording at Trident studios in Pacheco, California, and the record will then be mixed by the man himself, Andy Sneap. I'm fired up and ready to get started! The riffs are crazy heavy, Paul's feet are 'a flying' (yeah, I know, last time I mentioned Paul's feet it turned into a big 'this guy's feet are the fastest' sort of thing. Yes, I have heard the other guys mentioned, and yes, they are fast as fuck. Forgive me for being a bit excited!) and I will post updates from the studio on a regular basis. It's pretty remarkable that we are hitting the studio in such a short time after Tom's [Hunting] illness (he's feeling better, by the way), but right now I don't feel there is anything that can stop us. You have no idea what you are in for with this new record.

Exodus' as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Tempo of the Damned" will mark the band's first release with new singer Rob Dukes. 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."
