Californian thrashers Exodus recently announced that health reasons forced drummer Tom Hunting to step down from the recording of the upcoming album, scheduled for a September release. He will be replaced by Paul Bostaph, who is no stranger to thrash fans: he played with Forbidden, Testament, and Slayer.

As guitarist Gary Holt posted, "Tom has fallen very ill, he's been hospitalized several times over the course of the last two months." Holt also stressed that this development "is in no way associated to drugs: Tom had conquered his addiction well over a year ago. By no means was Tom fired or nor did Tom quit Exodus, but his health must come before any obligations to the band."
