Thrash legends Exodus visited the http://www.scionav.com/tag/scion-all-purpose-show/http://www.scionav.com/2014/09/30/exodus-interview-at-kirk-von-hammetts-fear-festevil-scion-av-all-purpose-show/ – to talk with host Prince Paul DJ , Producer extraordinaire.

In San Diego “to jam and massacre some legendary songs” at the after-party for Kirk Von Hammet’s Fear FestEvil, Exodus took the time to discuss lineup changes, moving forward and their upcoming Blood in Blood Out.

Torch-carrying guitarist Gary Holt, drummer and co-founder Tom Hunting (now on his third stint with the band) and recently returned vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza (also on third trip) sit in on this discussion. As to how they came to the lineup they’ve assembled for Blood In Blood Out, Hunting says, “We were at an impasse, and this album is number 10, so it had to be special.”

EXODUS – Announce Special Guests On New Album “Blood In Blood Out”

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , on September 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

EXODUS proudly announce the special guests appearing on the latest showcase of unrefined rage BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT, the band’s tenth studio album due out on October 10th (EU), 13th (UK), 14th (NA) via Nuclear Blast Records.

Crafting an industrial sound bed on the intro to the album opener “Black 13” is electronic music producer Dan the Automator (GORILLAZ, MIKE PATTON, DELTRON 3030).

“We ran into each other a couple times,” shares EXODUS guitarist & songwriter Gary Holt. “I knew what I wanted to hear and I knew he could do it, and could do it that day. So we sent him a file with the drums and guitars we already had there and just told him to go crazy with it.”

Testament frontman Chuck Billy lends his signature roar to the track “BTK,” one of the first songs recorded by returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza, who recently said, “Chuck and I have known each other forever. We work really well together, we know each other really well. So if I’m doing my vocals and he’s there, I can trust him to go ‘No way Zet, doesn’t sound good like that. Do it like this,’ or ‘Yeah that’s killer.’ If he says it sounds killer, I know it is.”

Original band guitarist Kirk Hammett of Metallica contributed a solo to “Salt The Wound.”

“This was actually the first time Kirk got to play on an official EXODUS release,” states Holt. “He did the early demo, and then joined Metallica and didn’t do anything with us after that. So he was totally gung-ho about it. He came down and ripped out a bunch of takes and we picked the best one and then had a barbecue and drank beer.”

“It felt really casual, really cool – just like it did back in 1980 when we were all just hanging out back in the day,” Hammett confessed to RollingStone.com in July.

Produced by Andy Sneap (ACCEPT, KREATOR, MEGADETH), BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT features cover illustration by Swedish artist Par Olofsson (PSYCROPTIC, ABYSMAL DAWN, REVOCATION).
