Jimmy Kay of Canada’s The Metal Voice conducted an interview with SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt at last night’s (Wednesday, January 24) Hall Of Heavy Metal History awards gala and induction ceremony in Anaheim, California.
Pressed about whether there will be a final SLAYER album to complement the band’s decision to stop touring, Holt said: “No. No, there’s no new album. I’d say it’s a no. But my name is Gary ‘No Comment’ Holt today. I don’t know nothing. You’ve seen the dates, you saw the press releases. And come out and celebrate the mighty history of SLAYER, which I’m lucky to have been part of for the last seven years now. It’s been a ride, it’s been remarkable, and we’re gonna end it in gloriously violent fashion.”
