Exodus – Blood In, Blood Out

Exodus are an odd creature among the old guard of thrash metal. Having barely avoided the dreaded scourge of the nineties by breaking up after 1992’s Force of Habit (which was middling but not outright offensive), they reappeared in 2001 with the stellar comeback, Tempo of the Damned. That still didn’t stop them from turning […]

Exodus – Exhibit B: The Human Condition

I understand that there are some people out there who don’t like Rob Dukes-era Exodus, and I get that. But I, for one, love it. The three records that feature Dukes, including this latest effort, have been some of the heaviest and most aggressive in the band’s entire catalog. If you didn’t like The Atrocity […]

Interview with Exodus

I won’t blather on about how Exodus is one of the greatest thrash bands of all time or that over their last several albums they’ve proved to be better than ever at delivering violent thrash metal. We all know this and if you don’t, you better find out soon, lest you miss out on the excellence that is Exodus. Instead, we thought that an update on the band after the release of the outstanding DVD, Shovel Headed Tour Machine: Live at Wacken (and other assorted atrocities) and before The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit B – The Human Condition drops in May. I caught up with iron man guitarist Gary Holt at his band’s Tyrants of Evil tour stop in Seattle.

LIVE REPORT: Kreator, Exodus, Belphegor, Warbringer, Epicurean

Friday, April 17th @ House of Blues, Chicago, IL It took us nearly 8 hours to get to Chicago with a couple stops, and a couple more stops to take pics of some really ridiculous things you see in the rural midwest areas. Epicurean was already playing as we walked in, and we managed to […]

Exodus – Let There Be Blood

Well established bands re-recording their past work has never really gone over well with fans. Most fans hold to the notion that not even the band itself can do anything that will even come close to capturing the magic of the original versions. To some fans, it’s outright blasphemy. Now, whether that’s a case of […]

EXODUS COMPLETE RE-RECORDING OF THEIR 1986 MASTERPIECE “BONDED BY BLOOD”

For the troops in the trenches, it began in 1982 with a low generation copy of a local band’s three-song demo. For some, it began with their first listen to Combat Records’ version of “Bonded By Blood” in 1986. Regardless of the year EXODUS are the undeniable forefathers of thrash metal. EXODUS gained huge notoriety […]

Exodus – The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A

Since they reformed in 2004, Exodus has been releasing quality album after quality album. Tempo of the Damned is one of the best “comeback” albums I’ve ever heard – a relentless assault on the ears that thrashes intensely and takes no prisoners. I had my doubts about follow-up album Shovel Headed Kill Machine, but it […]
