EXODUS: New Song Preview Available; ANDY SNEAP Web Chat Scheduled

Acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ARCH ENEMY, KREATOR) will take part in an online chat regarding his work on the brand new EXODUS album at 12:00 noon PST / 3:00 p.m. EST today (Sunday, December 20) at Ustream.tv.

EXODUS' ninth studio LP, "Exhibit B: The Human Condition", is currently being recorded in Northern California for a spring 2010 release via Nuclear Blast Records.

A brand new song, entitled "Good Riddance", which will appear on the forthcoming CD is available for streaming in the clip below (as premiered during an EXODUS live web stream yesterday, December 19).

In a recent interview with the German edition of Metal Hammer magazine, EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt stated about the band's forthcoming CD, "It's gonna be sick. We have four [songs] recorded [and left over] from the last session [for 2007's 'The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A'], and I've got, like, nine [other tracks] I'm working on, and Lee [Altus, guitar] has a bunch of stuff. But this next album is gonna blow people's minds."

Regarding the upcoming CD's musical direction, Holt said, "There's a couple of twists on this. I try not to repeat every album. I mean, we did 'Tempo Of The Damned' [2004], [which was] a little more old-school, and we did 'Shovel Headed Kill Machine' [2005], which was really brutal and fast, and then 'The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A', [which] was, like, longer and more epic songs. So this album's gonna have some different stuff to it. Maybe a little more dual-guitar stuff, 'cause I've been playing with Lee for quite awhile now — a little more dual-guitar harmony shred stuff. "

"Shovel Headed Tour Machine: Live At Wacken & Other Assorted Atrocities", EXODUS' new DVD (2 DVDs + bonus audio CD) will be released in North America on January 12, 2010. Los Angeles fans will have the unique opportunity to attend an exclusive, advanced screening at the Steve Allen Theater on Friday, January 8 at 8 p.m. Special guests for the evening are the members of EXODUS. Advanced tickets to the premiere can be purchased through the Steve Allen Theater at this location. Space is limited; early arrival is STRONGLY encouraged.

EXODUS will soon be on tour with ARCH ENEMY, ARSIS, and MUTINY WITHIN on the Tyrants Of Evil tour, which launches in Towson, Maryland on January 20, 2010.
