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!”
