Sweden Rock Festival 2012


If you ask metal fans who the originators of the Bay Area thrash metal scene are, most people will not just say, but shout out ”Exodus!”.

The band was formed in 1980 with a certain Kirk Hammett in the line-up, but the debut album ”Bonded by blood” didn’t see the light of day until 1985. The album is now widely considered to be one of the best and most important albums of thrash metal history and not to forget one of the most aggressive ones.

Several killer releases followed – the commercially successful ”Fabulous disaster” (1988) to name one, before Exodus folded in 1993. 2004 saw thrash fans positively shocked when the band released the brilliant comeback album ”Tempo of the damned”, and since then another three hard-hitting albums have been unleashed.

Original members Gary Holt (guitar) and Tom Hunting (drums) are today joined by Jack Gibson (bass), Lee Altus (guitar) and Rob Dukes, the brutal heir to Exodus’ legendary past frontmen Paul Baloff (1960-2002) and Steve Souza.
