Exodus Discuss Making of New Album, 'Blood In, Blood Out,' Part 1: Guitarist Gary Holt — Exclusive Video
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the first of five exclusive videos featuring Bay Area thrash legends Exodus.
Each weekly clip will showcase material from Blood Upon the Goat, the bonus “making of” DVD included with the digipak and imported box set of Blood In, Blood Out, the band's highly anticipated new album.
The album, which will be released October 14 via Nuclear Blast, is the band's 10th studio release. It was produced by Andy Sneap (Accept, Megadeth) and features ultra-cool cover art (you can check it out below) by Swedish artist Par Olofsson (Revocation).
"[It's] aggressive and in-your-face and the fastest album we've ever done," says Exodus guitarist and songwriter Gary Holt. "I was able to concentrate on leads and I played some of the best stuff I ever have. I'm ripping off Michael Schenker left and right; I should probably be paying him money. I owe him some royalties or something."
He added, "It sounds a little more like classic Exodus but in no way is it a retro album. I wrote most of the stuff but I gave a lot of control away — for the first time."
Blood In, Blood Out can be pre-ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA webshop in CD, digipak, 2LP yellow vinyl and imported limited-edition box set formats. Bundles include a T-shirt with exclusive artwork for North America and a poster (while supplies last).
