Catching Up With Slayer/Exodus Guitarist Gary Holt At Mayhem Festival

(PCM) Words cannot begin to describe just how excited we are for “Repentless” the highly-anticipated new album from Slayer!  The album is set to drop on 9/11 and will be the band’s 11th studio album and the very first on Nuclear Blast.

We have had a chance to listen to a few of the songs that make-up “Repentless” and they are just phenomenal. They are brutal,crushing thrash metal at its’ finest and from Slayer would you expect anything less?


“Repentless” was produced by Terry Date and written and recorded by guitarist Kerry King and singer/bassist Tom Araya at Henson Studios in Los Angeles, along with returning drummer Paul Bostaph and guitarist Gary Holt.

The band is currently headlining this year’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival and providing audiences all over the country just a taste of what is in-store with the release of “Repentless” this fall!


We had a chance to catch up with guitarist Gary Holt to talk about the new album, pulling double-duty with his roles in both Slayer and Exodus, as well as, what is on the agenda for the rest of the year!
