Drummer Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, FORBIDDEN, SYSTEMATIC) has issued a statement regarding his recent departure from EXODUS and his future plans.

Commented Paul: "As you all have already heard (and in case some have not), I have parted ways with EXODUS. They now have their original drummer Tom Hunting back in the band. I always said from the start if Tom ever wanted to come back, the drum throne is his. I have the greatest repect for Tom and his playing. He is truly a thrash legend. Thanks to the EXODUS guys for the fun ride. I'm sure the new record will kick ass! As for me, I'm looking for gigs and or a new band to work with."

In other news, Paul is no longer an endorser for Tama Drums. He is now proud to represent Sonor Drums and their products.

EXODUS recently completed a European headlining tour in support of its latest CD, "Shovel Headed Kill Machine", which was released in October 2005 via Nuclear Blast Records. Recorded at Trident studios in Pacheco, California and mixed by Andy Sneap (SABBAT, MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY), the follow-up to 2004's "Tempo of the Damned" was the band's first album to feature Lee Altus (guitar; HEATHEN), Paul Bostaph and Rob Dukes (vocals).

he should join a new band instead of play drummer for hire by all the old thrash bands. Paul rules.

Slayer should dump Dave and get Paul back! He gave the music so much more dynamic and groove. He could also play Dave's material perfectly, where Dave has a hard time holding anything down from GHUA.

I had the pleasure of seeing Paul with Exodus twice. One of the times my band opened for them. It was a great experience and I enjoyed talking with him both times he played here in Nashville. He is a rade drummer, one my biggest influences, I dont think he'll have any trouble finding a new kickass band to join.

Yeah definitely. Lombardo's more of a punk drummer than Bostaph. Both amazing drummers but Bostaph seems more in control of his playing whereas the edgeyness of Lombardo is what makes him the drummer he is

Bostaph is better at drumming off beat. Those little double bass flurries that he does are very cool.
