According to¬†AOL’s¬†Noisecreep,¬†Exodus¬†guitarist¬†Gary Holt,¬†Slayer drummer¬†Dave Lombardo,¬†Amen¬†vocalist¬†Casey Chaos¬†and ex-Queens Of The Stone Age¬†bassist¬†Nick Oliveri¬†will be working on an as-yet-unnamed project. The new group is currently recording music for a documentary about¬†House Of Shock, the infamous New Orleans haunted house attraction founded in 1992 by ex-Pantera¬†frontman¬†Philip Anselmo.
Holt, who has been touring with¬†Slayer¬†for the past two years, filling in for¬†Jeff Hanneman¬†(who is still recuperating from the spider bite that nearly cost him his arm), tells¬†Noisecreep: “Whenever¬†Dave¬†and I would get on deck for soundcheck [during the¬†Slayer¬†tours], we’d go up there first and jam make up stuff every day. It just comes easy for us. We’re both into being spontaneous and improvising. We probably have an album’s worth of material.”
“The [song] we were working on today, it’s like a combination of all of our bands with¬†Discharge¬†and¬†The Exploited¬†and¬†GBH¬†on it. Really, really punk. Super crunchy and super brutal. It just came together so naturally. There’s a beat and a riff and¬†Casey¬†starts spewing some venom on top of it. It’s awesome!”
