Gary Holt, songwriter and lead guitarist of EXODUS: â€œAfter many years in the planning and discussion stage, we have finally completed the re-recording of â€œBonded By Blood.â€ We have decided to call it â€œLet There Be Bloodâ€ and it is our way of paying homage to Paul Baloff by showing how relevant these songs we had written together still are. We arenâ€™t trying to replace the original, thatâ€™s impossible anyway. We are just giving these songs the benefit of modern production. Itâ€™s something we talked about before Paulâ€™s death and itâ€™s always been important to us to do. We were super excited about entering the studio once again to record these classics, and now itâ€™s back to writing the next studio record!â€
The album is a tribute to Paul Ballott, the band’s original vocalist, who died in 2002.
American thrash legends Exodus will play Sziget on August 17th, starting at 20:00 hours, at the Hammerworld Stage.
