Exodus' Gary Holt Talks Slayer & 30 Years of 'Bonded By Blood'

FUSE TV - Exodus' Gary Holt Talks Slayer & 30 Years of 'Bonded By Blood'

There are metal legends and then there is Gary Holt. The founding member of thrash metal icons Exodus deserves a place among the big four (that's MetallicaAnthraxSlayer and Megadeth for you newbs) in the hearts of metalheads and punks everywhere. The group's most legendary album, April 1985's Bonded By Blood, is also their first. We called Holt to talk about the LP's 30th anniversary, having Exodus mistaken for a Christian rock band, and joining Slayer's touring lineup.
