Exodus Guitarist Gary Holt: “I’m Convinced, And Have Been For Decades, That There’s More Than One Lemmy”

Gary Holt (Exodus) and more have shared some of their Motörhead stories with Banger TV as part of a promo video for the recently released Motörhead tribute album “Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead.” Humorously, the guitarist says he believes there was actually “more than one Lemmy.”

Holt said the following:

“I’m convinced, and have been for decades, that there’s more than one Lemmy, or at least there was.

We [in EXODUS] used, back in the day, to squander more money on tours. When we did a European tour, we insisted that we had to spend a week in London first — to acclimate to the time change. Basically, it was us partying like fucking animals for five to seven days.

This was when Lemmy still lived in England and London. And we’d go out to a bar and there’s Lemmy. We’d go up and hang out [with] him, do some drugs or whatever and have some drinks. [We’d tell him] ‘We’re gonna go to this other place.’ ‘All right. See you guys later.’ And we’d get there and he’s already sitting at the bar; I mean, he’s been there for an hour. And then we went to another place and he’s there ahead of us, and we left him sitting at the bar. And ever since then we’re convinced that there’s at least three different Lemmys, ’cause he couldn’t possibly have done it. But, you know, Lemmy is God, so…”

Watch Hatebreed Cover Exodus’ “Bonded By Blood” In Dallas, TX

During their August 8 set in Dallas, TX, Hatebreed performed a live cover of Exodus’ “Bonded By Blood.” You can see some fan-filmed footage of that below. The performance took place amid Hatebreed’s ongoing tour with Anthrax and Black Label Society. However, Anthrax were unable to make last night’s concert “due to a medical concern.”

Anthrax’s Scott Ian To Guest On New Album From Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta

Guitarist Lee Altus To Sit Out Exodus’ European Tour, The Black Dahlia Murder’s Brandon Ellis To Fill In

Exodus guitarist Lee Altus will be missing the band’s upcoming European tour. During his absence, The Black Dahlia Murder’s Brandon Ellis will be filling in.

The band commented:

“Exodus regretfully announce that Lee Altus will not be joining us on our upcoming European tour. Family concerns dictate he remain close to home and being so far away from home is not possible. Exodus stand strong with Lee and will destroy in his behalf, and he will rejoin us for the upcoming tours such as the fall leg of The Bay Strikes Back.

We stand behind our brother in everything and he will be back! Joining us on this trek is none other than Brandon Ellis of The Black Dahlia Murder, so let’s welcome him like one of the Exodus family!

Brandon is one of the sickest guitarists alive and he is going to kill it for certain! See you soon in Europe and the UK!”

Ellis added:

“I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to get on stage with the legendary dudes of Exodus and crush some open air fests and clubs this July and August. I wish Lee the best and will cover his stage right post with honor and respect!”

DIEHUMANE (Ex-Exodus, Ex-Type O Negative) Mixing New Album

DIEHUMANE, the new project featuring Rick Hunolt (ex-Exodus), Sal Abruscato (A Pale Horse Named Death, ex-Type O Negative), Garret West, Joshua Vargas, and Greg Hilligiest Jr., have finished recording their new album. The effort is currently being mixed by Ulrich Wild.

Vargas commented:

“As of today, the DIEHUMANE album has finished recording. Ten originals and a 10 minute cover. The album is also over halfway mixed because Ulrich Wild is an absolute beast and we only have a few more to mix, then mastering.

I’m super proud of this album. It’s definitely it’s own thing and only sounds like itself, which was always the most important goal and what made it worth doing in the first place. I’m pretty sure it won’t be what some people are expecting, and it’s definitely not gonna be some people’s cup of tea, and that’s perfectly fine. What no one will ever be able to say about it is that we were following others or trying to fit into a certain niche.

And, as a guy who has sat with these songs for over a year, and since I know y’all are interested, I’ll say it now:

Rick Hunolt’s guitar work on this is going to knock people flat. Every solo on here is a classic. There is the shit-ripping solos that he is known for, but then there’s a bluesy and jazzy side of his playing that I’m super excited to see people discover.

As well, Sal’s drumming on this literally sounds like somebody awakened a sleeping giant. There’s a song on here that we nicknamed ‘The Bruiser’ that would be just as heavy, dynamic, and intense if you stripped all of the other music off and just left the drums.

To nutshell it, if you’ve read this and are still interested, you’ll love it and it’ll be worth the wait. Our first video shoots in a few weeks, so it’s not much further now.”

Generation Kill Share Music Video For “Evil Eye” Featuring Chris Poland (Ex-Megadeth)

Generation Kill, the band featuring ex-Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes, have premiered a new video for their song “Evil Eye.” The track, which features ex-Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland, appears on the band’s latest album “MKUltra.”

Dukes commented:

“In ’85, I dropped the needle onto an album called ‘Killing is my Business… and Business is Good‘ and heard a guitar tone I’d never heard before. Ever since, Chris Poland has been one of my favorite guitarists of all time. To collaborate with him on this song is one of the greatest honors in my musical career. The solos he did on this song are mind-blowing. The unique style and tone is so unmistakably Chris.

The song itself was inspired by a short story from Edgar Allan Poe The Tell-Tale Heart written in the 1800’s. Our drummer Rob Youells connected us with the filmmaker Wacy Jahn, who he had worked with on a previous project, and Wacy used our vision to create nothing short of a horror masterpiece. We couldn’t be prouder of this one.”
