“Ok so it’s time to announce my new band DIEHUMANE. Been in the studio finishing up vocals and odds and ends with the one and only producer Ulrich Wild. Not sure what genre it falls under so I’m not going to put a label on it as of yet, I will let you guys do that when the time comes haha. I will say that the music is absolutely epic, I absolutely love everything about it and am confident you guys will to. So the members are as follows. We have on vocals Garret West, on bass Josh Vargas, on drums the doom lord Sal Abruscato from Type O Negative and Life Of Agony and Greg Hilligiest Jr. on keyboards. I just want to say that without you guys there is no anything so thanks a bunch for following. Our Facebook just went live today so hit us up at our Facebook and Instagram. You guys are going to love this I know it”.

Exodus Drummer Tom Hunting: “Thanks To Science, They Can’t Find Any Cancer In Me Right Now”

During a recent interview with Pamela Calderón of Chile’s iRock.cl, Exodus’ Tom Hunting further opened up about his battle with squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach. The drummer, who previously underwent a total gastrectomy, said the following:

“I’m so grateful to the metal community. It’s a powerful force to have those vibrations behind you. Thanks to science, the medical science, they can’t find any cancer in me right now. So that’s awesome. They did surgery [last] July the 12th, and I’m adjusting to a new lifestyle — a different type of relationship with food. But life is good. I don’t have to get any more chemotherapy ’cause they got it all. So that’s an awesome thing. They turned a bad situation around for me, so I’m very grateful. I don’t even know how to thank everybody. There’s no words to say how important [everybody’s support] is. Fortunately, though, I get to live and say thanks to everybody.”
