Last week I wrote that Exodus's Gary Holt was on the verge of recording and then touring with with youngsters Warbringer. This month's Terrrorizer features an interview of him by another group of local, young thrashers Bonded by Blood. Mr. Holt is now officially the godfather of the Southern California thrash scene. I don't know these kids from Ventura, but being signed by Earache says a lot. Pitchfork and Fudge Tunnel define that label for me.
Bonded by Blood play next at The Black Castle with a bunch of other bands and Michael Angelo Batio (Tom Morello's instructor) on January 17, 2009. If anyone can share a few words about their live show, I'd like to hear them.
