Exodus Tempo Of The Damned on Limited Edition Colored 2LP
First Time on Vinyl in North America / Limited to 1,000 Colored Copies
The original architects of the thrash metal scene, Exodus has battled every kind of adversity over the past 30 some odd years and used it all as fuel to stoke their ever-raging fire. Short-lived trends, line-up shifts, label conflicts, even the death of founding vocalist Paul Baloff couldn't stop the beast.
And through it all, guitarist and songwriter Gary Holt has persevered with misanthropic indignation, rolling with the punches, reassembling the broken pieces and working with the eccentric personalities surrounding him to create some of the most trenchant, fast-paced, and unrelenting music that influenced everyone from Pantera to Lamb of God and continues to crush skulls at a time decades after most ‘80s thrash bands have retired.
Twelve years after 1992's Force of Habit, Exodus returned in 2004 with Tempo Of The Damned, a worthy comeback with crushing riff attacks, merciless drumming and distinctive vocal outbreaks. Strong and fresh, Exodus yielded a real thrash hurricane here. With Steve "Zetro" Souza back on the mic, Tempo Of The Damned is the Bonded By Blood of the 2000's. Pure thrash...as good as it gets!
