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
Still no news about the last headliner and if there will actually be one. Still, we stumbled across an article about Hungarian band BÃ¼dÃ¶sÃ¶k on The Little Black Egg, that says Sziget is "a giant, boring rock fest stuffed to the gills with bands a good fifteen years past their sell-by date.".

Still, a closer look at the Main Stage schedule on the official site will rise a question mark. There is nothing programmed on Friday August 15th, in the spot between URH and Sex Pistols. Will there be a new announcement soon? That is the question. It it very hard to think that the spot will remain empty or that URH will play for three whole hours. You can continue to vote in the poll, too. What
