Specialists/collaborators reviews

Kingcrimsonprog
Exodus have had a lot of line-up changes over the years. Not as many as say Cradle Of Filth or Annihilator but certainly not as stable as the likes of Rush or Clutch. They've had three lead singers on record; firstly Paul Baloff on their immortal debut album Bonded By Blood, who was replaced by former Legacy (the band who would go on to be Testament) vocalist Steve 'Zetro' Souza. Zetro saw them through the rest of the '80s and early nineties (on, in my opinion, their most important and seminal work and some of the best Thrash Metal by any band at all). He himself was then replaced by Baloff again in the late '90s until Baloff passed away.

The band got back together with Zetro and released one of the best albums of their (or anyone's) career in 2004's Tempo Of The Damned. (Incidentally; If you don't love 'War Is My Sheppard' then I just don't know what to do with you). Then, just a year later Zetro was out and replaced by the then little-known Rob Dukes, who we were all very skeptical about but who fit the band monstrously well and eventually won a lot of people over, during the course of his tenure, lasting three studio albums, a live album and a remake compilation of Bonded By Blood. After two singers zig-zagging there was finally vocal stability and the modernized band was the going concern that would see them through to retirement.

[Before the angry comments flow in I know I mentioned line up changes and then just discussed the singers. It wasn't only the singers. Guitarists have changed, bassists have changed. Drummer Tom Hunting has left and returned a few times (although that's more understandable as he has a health condition). But for the last few years things had been nice and stable within the group more or less.]

Where was I? Yes... to see them through to retirement. ....Aaaaaaaaand then Dukes was out and Zetro was back again. What the hell? Do you know how hard it is to get fans to accept a third singer!? And to do so this late into their career. Imagine if Blaze Bailey actually won over Maiden fans. Do you know how rare that is? And then they go start over again. I didn't buy this album for a full two years after I wanted it just out of sheer mourning for Dukes. 

Oh well, at least it wasn't a new singer again. As much as I love Dukes' vocals on that run of albums its hard to deny that Zetro is an absolute legend and the definitive voice of Exodus for me. He's who I'd want to see live and my dream setlist by the band is 80% Zetro era songs. It just makes sense. In fact, it took me catching the band live to get over the shock and realize things weren't just reunion for reunions sake. Yes it is mentally untidy that their current singer is on their was their singer, then not, then he was again, then he wasn't again and then he was again, and that his time in the band was '86-94 and then not until '02 and out again in '04 and then not on the superb trilogy of albums between then and 2014.  Its untidy, but that's Steve fucking Souza! That's the guy who sang 'Accelerating faster, devastating plaster, fabulous disaster.' How can you deny him?

Anyway. That's all a very long-winded bit of background to Exodus' tenth studio album, 2014's Blood In, Blood Out. The name presumably a cheeky wink to their history with line-up changes. The only reason to even mention all this background is that it sits there swirling away in your mind as you listen to this album. Can it live up to the monster of Tempo Of The Damned? Can it live up to their '80s glory period? How will it affect their absolute top run of form on those previous Rob Dukes albums, are they just going to throw away all that good work?

Well the good news for all of us is that this album absolutely kills. After a strange industrial intro courtesy of guest star Dan The Automator (which if you didn't know about beforehand would make you fearful Exodus have taken a funny turn and decided this album is going to go a bit Static X) the band burst into an absolutely ferocious and concise hour of blistering, up tempo Bay Area Thrash.

The songs are very catchy and memorable without letting up on the intensity. Its very restless, aggressive and pounding. Yet somehow there are tonnes of hooks to grab on to. The chanting gang vocals on some songs are undeniable. On some songs the razor sharp guitar solos get stuck in your head. Some songs have that one riff that is just irresistible and breaks a huge smile across your face. I mean just listen to the chorus to 'Collateral Damage.' You aint forgetting that any time soon! Hell; listen to its guitar solo. That's not just any other guitar solo, its really rather unique. And that's just one song. I can't emphasize this enough: each and every one of the songs on the album, all of them, are catchy and memorable. There's nothing that needs removing from the album. Nothing that should've been trimmed to make it more punchy.

The songs are generally less long and feature less repetition than on the previous few albums, and what is left is really just all the best parts. It may be less ambitious and less adventurous but it makes up for it in snarling, barking, high speed uuumph. It really is the pure essence of Thrash Metal writ large in modern production, triumphantly performed by absolutely bad asses who have only gotten better with age.

An interesting point here is the guest appearance from Metallica's Kirk Hammet who we all remember was in Exodus before he joined Metallica (Tempo Of The Damed featured a song he'd written on). Kirk adds some guest guitar to 'Salt The Wound.' Its a nice touch. Speaking of guest appearances, Testament's Chuck Billy also comes in and does guest vocals on 'BTK' and the title track. He is always a great guest. I loved it when he showed up on Forbidden's reunion album Omega Wave and I love him showing up here (just as Zetro guested on Testament's First Strike Still Deadly). I love the whole Bay Area Thrash camaraderie thing.

Side note: Does anyone else remember that fun, weird, N64 game 'Body Harvest' ? I can't forget it now. Exodus have a song by that name here and now all I can think of is giant blocky praying mantis-looking aliens. Every time I spin this album all I can think of is those aliens, Chuck Billy's smile, and how weird it is that Rob Dukes is out of the band and yet they totally make their discography make sense with this album. Oh, and while we're at it; Best guitar solo on the album? Body Harvest!

After a brilliantly strong opening, the guest appearances, the great stomping 'Body Harvest' and its great solo and 'BTK' and all that stuff, you'd think the album may start to lag towards the end. That is a remarkably good first half, and by anyone's standards they could dump a bunch of filler at the end and most people would still go away thinking it was a great record. Well, that is exactly what they do not do. The second half arguably mirrors the first for quality, for ferocity, for catchiness and for interesting memorable moments: 'Wrapped In The Arms Of Rage,' 'Honor Killings,' 'Food For The Worms' ...these are all raging tunes.

Overall; despite line up drama, this is an absolutely ripping album from the Bay Area legends, and people like me were wrong to doubt them. The band are arguably in much better shape than three quarters of the rest of '80s Thrash bands are at the minute, arguably stronger than ninety percent of new Thrash revival bands, and this album is arguably in the top half in not top quarter of their entire discography (and those are damn big words, but I genuinely mean it). If like me you are skeptical of yet further line up changes or just plain sad to see Rob go, don't hesitate like I did. Blood goes in, Blood goes out, but Exodus are always bloody brilliant.
UMUR
"Blood In, Blood Out" is the 11th full-length studio album by US thrash metal act Exodus. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in October 2014. There´s been quite a significant lineup change since the release of "Exhibit B: the Human Condition (2010)" as lead vocalist Rob Dukes, who joined Exodus in 2005 after Steve "Zetro" Souza left the band for the second time, has been replaced by his predecessor, who joins Exodus for the third time (if you count the 2002 reunion).

The addition of Steve "Zetro" Souza to the ranks, results in "Blood In, Blood Out" practically sounding like the natural successor to "Tempo of the Damned (2004)", as if the intermediate Rob Dukes fronted releases never existed. This is simply the sound of "classic" era Exodus, which is probably a great joy to those fans who never warmed up to Rob Dukes "core" tinged delivery. Not surprisingly the band are very well playing and "Zetro" is in fine vocal form, delivering his characteristic snarling attack with the right "fuck you" attitude.

The material on the 11 track, 62:17 minutes long album features few surprises, so if you are familiar with past "Zetro" fronted Exodus releases, you pretty much know what to expect (albeit I feel this one is slightly more aggressive and raw than past endeavers). Mid- to faster paced driving beats, fast aggressive thrashy riffing, and occasional heavier groove based sections, blistering guitar solos, and the above mentioned snarling vocals on top (and the occasional riot gang backing vocals). The quality of the tracks is high throughout, and while 60 minutes of playing time might be just a couple of tracks too long, when the variation between the tracks isn´t greater, all tracks still come off as catchy and memorable (so it´s not a major issue, but just a general observation that music of this type usually works better within a 40 minutes long format). Some of the highlights are tracks like "Collateral Damage", the title track, and the furiously fast paced "Food for the Worms", but as mentioned I could literally have picked any track off the album and taken one by one they would have applied as highlights.

Andy Sneap is credited as producer on "Blood In, Blood Out", as he has been on most post reunion albums by Exodus, and he has created a huge, powerful, and metallic sound, which suits the material well. It´s a clear and detailed sound production, but still raw enough to not sound polished. So all things considered "Blood In, Blood Out" is a high quality release by Exodus and a welcome return to the fold for Steve "Zetro" Souza, whose voice and delivery to my ears fit Exodus sound like a glove. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.
