But still....ZET!! Welcome back to the fold! It's been a long time since Steve Souza has fronted Exodus, and the last time didn't work out that great in the end. However, time has healed the wounds, and those of us who think this band and this vocalist were made for each other get to reap the benefits. The timing is perfect, as Exodus now adds to the list of amazing albums released by thrash legends in the last few years. Overkill's “Ironbound.” Testament's “Dark Roots of Earth.” Anthrax's “Worship Music.” Kreator's “Phantom Antichrist.” Now comes “Blood In, Blood Out,” a true masterpiece of thrash featuring phenomenal efforts by Holt, Altus, Gibson, and Hunting, and the inimitable Zetro once again behind the mic. From top to bottom, this one is damn near perfect.
In baseball, they talk about certain guys being five-tool players. They can hit for power, hit for average, they excel at running, fielding, and throwing. Exodus is a five-tool thrash band, and this album shows it. They play with furious speed and aggression. They play galloping, headbanging thrash. They have tons of hardcore swing. They play pounding, mid-paced stomp. They have melodic technicality. There's literally nothing under the umbrella of thrash that Exodus hasn't mastered. And while you could argue that they can't offer the same kind of softer moments as their peers, theirs has never been a sound conducive to sections of clean vocals and guitars. Besides, balladry never was one of the core elements of thrash anyway.Read more ›
Reminiscent of the days when moshing was actually a dangerous sport. A time, long before pits became user friendly. A glorious time, when there were no swirling flannel, Lolapaloozy, Pearl Jammy, slightly Nirvanish sissy pits. Instead, they were flesh tornadoes, and they would hurt you if you got sucked in. Bloody noses, bruises and even broken bones were not at all uncommon. Try crowd surfing on a tsunami during a hurricane, you get the idea. The soft, spoiled, everyone gets a trophy, helicopter parented, youth of today, wouldn't last 30 seconds. OMG! did I just do that? NOTE TO SELF: you know yore getting older, when you start making statements that involve............. "The youth of today"...but...I digress. Well there's my daily rant, now back to business.
KEEPIN' IT REAL WITH THE FEEL, YO
Not many bands release (one of) their finest recording(s), this far into their career. I can honestly say, that B.I.B.O. may go down, as one of the finest Thrash recordings of all time. Up there with: Ride The Lightning, by that band Kirk Hammet went on to join, what was their name again? Metal-Lisa, or something like that. Speaking of that band, while there peers were experimenting with acoustic interludes, complex time signatures and generally just slowin' it down a bit. (even the sinister boys of Slayer got in on that.) However; Exodus, kept it on street level. They weren't "trying" to do anything, they just did what they did...well. Granted, some will always venture out, and take the music where it's never been. While others keep the home-fires burning. Exodus, stayed home, to raise its children, children meaning: their core audience, in other words, they never pandered.Read more ›
