This weekend, Exodus will headline it’s first Bay Area club shows since late 2013 when the band takes over the Chapel in San Francisco’s Mission District for two nights. The band is promising a special event for fans with plans to film the Exodus as they perform some rarely heard songs alongside classic hits in addition to inviting some past members onstage for guest appearances. CBS SF spoke to Holt earlier this week about the two-night SF residency as well as his plans with both Exodus and Slayer.
CBS SF: When we talked a few years ago prior to Blood In Blood Outbeing recorded, you mentioned having gotten the “Pink Floyd or Rush of thrash” out of your system as far as Exhibit A and Exhibit B leaning towards more complex song structures. Do you see the new album sticking to the more straight forward type of tunes that were on Blood In Blood Out?
Gary Holt: You know, it’s hard to say. Of the stuff I’ve written so far, I think the songs are shorter, but I think they’re also at the same time more progressive than the last album. It’s a little outside the box. It’s really super crushing, but I think people will be surprised.
It’s an Exodus album, but as of now, the stuff Tom and I have been putting together is a bit different. It’s got those subtle changes that make for a departure, but it will still stay true to the core of the band’s sound.
CBS SF: Had Exodus played or toured with Maiden before?
Gary Holt: No, Maiden has been out on tour with Ghost, but I think they did this a couple of years ago as well. When they played the Southern California show they added some bands and made it kind of like a mini festival because that amphitheater down there is massive. I guess you’d call it a little one-day Maiden fest. It was a pretty epic show. It just had some epic technical failures.
