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 on December 19, 2009).
In a 2009 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' , [which was] a little more old-school, and we did 'Shovel Headed Kill Machine' , 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) was released in North America on January 12.
Exodus is currently on the road with Arch Enemy, Arsis, and Mutiny Within as part of the Tyrants Of Evil tour.
