‘Blood In Blood Out’ is a landmark record for Exodus since 85’s ‘Bonded by Blood’. After listening to the album, it was clear that Blood In, Blood Out has taken Exodus to the next level. They are cutting out the fat even further and focusing down on music. In the opening few minutes of this album, we find Exodus going back to their old school thrash roots and deciding to up the aggression a few notches. This is classic, angry, frantic thrash like the good old days and it sounds rock solid and mighty pissed off. It is an orgy of riffs and heroin for the thrasher. It is proper thrash metal straight from its golden era, and I strongly appreciate the fact that they have not meddled with it. It is what thrash is/was supposed to be: fast, anarchized and in-your-face. Exodus gets far less recognition and respect than they deserve, and I hope that this record changes all of that. If the Big 4 is planning on an expansion of interests and ideas, then this album should serve as some food for thought.
Having traveling many countries with more than 130 shows, Exodus are currently taking a short break. Metal Wani’s writer William Richards had a chat with the legend Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza. He discusses Exodus European Tour, the atmosphere within the band sicne his arrival, why he stepped down as HATRIOT’s vocalist (his son is the vocalist now), his opinion on Spotify, his takes on metal vocalists, over-categorization in metal, his opinion on GHOST and their music, his ultimate thrash supergroup idea, upcoming tour and much more.
