New Slayer Album Finished 'Song-Wise,' Gary Holt Explains
Exodus/Slayer axeman Gary Holt gave an update regarding the new material of both bands, dubbing fresh Exodus "f--king crushing" and confirming that the new Slayer record is complete, "song-wise."

"Song-wise, to the best of my knowledge, the Slayer album is complete," Gary told Brave Words. "I know Kerry is continuing to write, so I think he's got a lot of stuff. I think they're just waiting for the right time to begin."

Asked on whether he'll be contributing any material in Slayer, the guitarist replied, "No, it's all them. That's their game, their thing. If in the future they want some additional help, I've got no shortage of riffs. But right now, they're all dedicated to this record."

As far as Exodus goes, Holt showed a great deal of excitement about the fresh stuff. "It's f--king crushing," he enthusiastically said. "I put it like this, everybody is usually patting themselves on the back - 'This new album is the new 'Master of Puppets,' or the new 'Bonded by Blood,' or the new 'Back in Black.'' It's f--king killer. I'll let everyone else make comparisons, but it's amazing."

Finally, Gary made sure to point out that Slayer won't affect new Exodus songs whatsoever. "No, because I write the way I write," he explained. "I'm flexible - I could write for f--kin' Bon Jovi if I had to. Not that I want to, although the publishing check would be good, but it's like I do things my own way and I always have. And I still write the same way I did in 1985."
