According to a recent interview in the Washington Times, Exodus / Slayer guitarist Gary Holt looks like he may well record solos on the next Slayer album.


“It looks like I’ll probably be doing solos on the record, but the songs are all written. Kerry [King] will handle all that stuff. My plate’s kind of full anyway, so I’ll probably be bouncing back and forth from L.A. to San Francisco,” said Holt. In reply to the suggestion by Tom Araya that the band is working on some Jeff Hanneman material, Holt confirms, “I know they have some stuff, you know, I think the bulk of whatever’s left over was stuff that remained from World Painted Blood, but I haven’t heard it yet, so I can’t comment on it. I’m sure it’d be super cool to have some of his last final works end up on the Slayer album. That would be awesome.”


As for Holt’s own band, Exodus, he says, “Right now, I’m starting to compile riffs […] I pretty much have a break from the world of Slayer ’til next April. So, I’m using this time off to make sure that I get that next Exodus record done.”
