Exodus 'Blood In, Blood Out'

The wait is over! Today, Bay Area thrash metal pioneers EXODUS unleash their blistering new track ‘Salt The Wound’, which features an intense guitar solo from none other than original EXODUS/Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett! ‘Salt The Wound’ is cut from the new EXODUS album Blood In, Blood Out, hitting stores onOctober 14, 2014 in North America via Nuclear Blast. Listen right now, exclusively via RollingStone.comhttp://smarturl.it/Exodus-SaltTheWound

Guitarist Gary Holt explains that Hammett was more than ready to play on Blood In, Blood Out. “Having Kirk play on the new EXODUS record kind of came about after I played so many shows with Metallica while touring with Slayer over the past four year. It started the same way most of these things do, as a lot of chatter while having a good time, but Kirk was more stoked to play on the new record than anyone. He never got to play on anything with EXODUS since the first demo despite being a founding member, so I think it really meant a lot to him. Coming full circle so to speak. So I chose the song “Salt the Wound” since I thought the rhythm section for the first lead was right in his wheelhouse, and he killed it! He came in and busted out several takes and his solo compliments mine perfectly. Then we drank beer and ate barbecue! Epic time!”

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

As announced last week, Kirk Hammett isn’t the only special guest to grace Blood In, Blood Out. 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), and TESTAMENT’s Chuck Billy lends his signature roar to the track ‘BTK.’

We interrupt these important album details for a delicious storyEXODUS’ Gary Holt will appear as a guest judge on this week’s episode of Top Chef Duels on Bravo! The episode airs TOMORROW, September 10th at 10pm ET/9pm CT. The guest judges panel also features fellow heavy metal frontrunners Rob Zombie and Scott Ian, judging a full vegan meal.

Fan Arrested for Posting Lyrics:
EXODUS Releases Statement Regarding Man Arrested for Posting “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” Lyrics

There has been an unfortunate situation that has come to the band’s attention. A fan in Greenville, Kentucky has been arrested and is currently being jailed for alleged terroristic threats for posting the lyrics to the EXODUS song ‘Class Dismissed’.

The band EXODUS does not promote or condone terrorists, threats or bullying. That being said, the band is somewhat baffled by the fact that this man being charged for what seems against his first amendment rights of Freedom of Speech.

Follow this link for more information on the arrest: http://www.14news.com/story/26431395/lyrics-posted-on-facebook-lead-to-arrest-of-muhlenberg-co-man

“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society,” states EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt. “James Evans was simply posting lyrics to a band he likes on Facebook, and he was locked up for it. The song ‘Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)’ was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration to write the song, one in which we put the brakes on playing it live after the Sandy Hook shooting, as we did not want to seem insensitive.”

Gary continues, “As some of us in EXODUS are parents, of course these things hit close to home, it’s every parent’s worst fear. These moments are the stuff of nightmares, and life, as well as music, isn’t always pretty. But when we start to overreact to things like lyrics by any band, including EXODUS, and start arresting people, we are caving in to paranoia and are well on our way to becoming an Orwellian society.”

Look for the forthcoming EXODUS album, entitled Blood In, Blood Out, coming October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. Also, catch EXODUS on the road with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.

EXODUS Reveal Special Guests on New Album BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT

Special Guest Appearances Include Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Chuck Billy (Testament), and Dan the Automator (Gorillaz, Mike Patton)

Exodus 2014

New studio album due out October 14 via Nuclear Blast

VIP Packages available for fall tour with SLAYER and Special Guests SUICIDAL TENDENCIES

Bay Area thrash metal provocateurs EXODUS proudly announce the special guests appearing on their latest showcase of unrefined rage Blood In, Blood Out, the band’s tenth studio album due out on October 14th in North America.

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 byreturning 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 wayZet, 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 Exodus guitarist Kirk Hammett (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.

Going Fast! Get Your VIP Packs for Upcoming Tour Featuring Headliners SLAYER and Special Guests SUICIDAL TENDENCIES

Exodus 'Blood In, Blood Out'

Legendary thrash metal band EXODUS have revealed the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, Blood In, Blood Out, hitting retail and digital stores on October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUS’ Let There Be Blood.

The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains, “The concept came from Par Olofsson – I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”

Blood In, Blood Out is EXODUS’ 10th studio album, and marks the band’s first release with new vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. It was also just announced via Rolling Stone that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett churned out a special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album. More details are set to be released soon, including release dates, track listing information, pre-order specifics, and more.

To celebrate the imminent release of Blood In, Blood Out, EXODUS will be busy touring this fall – with a full South American tour leading into a supporting run with fellow metal titans Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies on the Scion-sponsored fall leg of their United States onslaught. The tour begins on November 12th in Oakland, CA at The Fox Theater and will tour throughout the states, coming to close in Detroit, MI at The Fillmore on December 5th. Tickets are on sale now!
