SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has recorded a guest solo for the new album from GENERATION KILL, the band fronted by his former EXODUS bandmate Rob Dukes. The disc, which is being produced by Chris "Zeuss" Harris, features Dukes alongside Jason Velez on guitar, Max Velez on bass and Craig Cefola on drums. Holt's solo, which was tracked at UpRock Studios in Roseville, California, will be featured in a song called "Never Relent".
Harris previously worked with GENERATION KILL on the band's sophomore album, "We're All Gonna Die", which came out in 2013.
Dukes, who fronted EXODUS for nine years, performed with the band during its July 8, 2017 concert in San Francisco, California. He sang several songs with the group on the second of EXODUS's two-night stint at The Chapel in what marked the band's first headlining Bay Area club shows since late 2013.
Dukes joined EXODUS in January 2005 and appeared on four of the band's studio albums — "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" (2005), "The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A" (2007), "Let There Be Blood" (2008, a re-recording of EXODUS' classic 1985 LP, "Bonded By Blood") and "Exhibit B: The Human Condition" (2010).
EXODUS in June 2014 announced the departure of Dukes and the return of Steve "Zetro" Souza, who previously fronted EXODUS from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004.
