Slayer Could Be 'Crushingly Heavy' Under Gary Holt Influence
Holt was brought in as a full-time member of the band after Jeff Hanneman's death, but never contributed to the writing of upcoming album Repentless, which is released on September 11.
And Bostaph - who previously worked with Holt in Exodus - can't wait to hear the results of Holt's future collaborations with Kerry King. Bostaph tells Metal-Rules: "If Gary contributes, it's gonna be nothing but crushing and heavy. Kerry's doing a fantastic job, but this band has always had two guitar players that have written. So, I hope if Gary gets involved in it, him and Kerry work together on some stuff. It could make for some really crushingly heavy music.
"Anytime you take away a player, or add a player in an ensemble situation, you're adding a new dynamic. It depends on the strengths and the weaknesses of the individual you are taking in and putting out. But Gary was there in the beginning of thrash metal." Read more here.
