Not that I needed another reason to listen to the forthcoming Exodus record when it drops, but Kirk Hammett of Metallica apparently guests on the fucker.
Kirk tells RollingStone.com that he recently laid down a guitar solo on song “Salt In The Wound” on Blood In, Blood Out, which will be out this fall, with any luck.
“It felt really casual, really cool — just like it did back in 1980 when we were all just hanging out back in the day,” Hammett said. “Me, recording a solo on their album was a huge thing for me. Other than the Exodus demo that’s been heard by a lot of people, it’s the only time I ever recorded with Exodus. It was a huge thing for me.”
“I play a pretty cool solo, and then Gary [Holt] comes in and plays another solo, and you know what? I listened to that and thought, ‘Wow, it’s 1982 all over again and here we are, Gary and I are trying to cut each other’s heads off with our guitar solos.’ Nothing has changed much in the last 30 years. I love it. I love those guys. I’ve only known them for most of my life, so I’m really happy that I finally got to record with them.”
