This comes out in early May and is very high on my shopping list, after the KILLER first disc. Seriously, this band just seem to get better and better & both themselves and Testament easily out-do the so-called "Thrash Big Four" these days IMO. Can't wait for this one... :banger:

I like this band, I saw them live last year and they were fantastic, but I don't hear enough variety in their songs. I might download 2 or 3 tracks after reading reviews and listening to samples, but for me they aren't an album band. (They were playing with Overkill and the gig summed up my opinion. Exodus were as good and maybe better than Overkill in so far as their playing was really tight, they had great energy, but after half an hour I'd had enough of the songs. Whereas Overkill came out, Blitz was completely insane and they belted out classic after classic after classic.)

 

Will be interested to check out the reviews of this one though.

Yeah I think they're a tighter live band than Overkill (mainly thanks to Gary Holt who is a massively underrated riff-master) but they're definitely not as charismatic as Overkill appear - largely thanks to Blitz. In terms of old-school bands Exodus will do well to top Overkill's new album, which is totally killer, but I have high hopes as the last 3 Exodus albums have been absolutely awesome. I do think "The Atrocity Exhibition" suffered a little in terms of songs as it was a touch progressive and focused more on riffs/time-changes etc, than the usual verse/chorus song-structure. But it was still the best new album from an old-school thrash band in years IMO, beating even the last (and great) Testament album & definitely beating anything Metallica/Megadeth/Death Angel etc have put out in recent years...

Agreed,ive always considered Exodus as upper echleon-first tier thrash period.

You goddamn right, I'll be getting this! Nuclear Blast actually has a pre-order package available for North America. You get the CD with a bonus track and a slipcase with different artwork, and your choice of two shirts (or both shirts for an extra twelve bucks).

 

I'm totally onboard with the second coming of Exodus, as each of their three post-millennium albums absolutely slays. I love Overkill, and Ironbound is a great disc, but I thought they stumbled a bit on ReliXIV and Immortalis. And i sing the praises of Testament like everybody else, but just don't find myself listening to them as often as you might think. So Exodus have pretty much assumed the throne as the kings of thrash for me. My only gripe with Exhibit A was that it seemed a lot of the songs were needlessly long, like they were trying to shoe-horn in as many riffs as possible into each one. And as much as I love Steve Souza's voice, Rob Dukes, though kinda generic-sounding, isn't nearly the deterrent I thought he might be.

 

So yeah ... I'm on it!

I got this one yesterday, and if you generally liked the first "Atrocity Exhibit" disc but would've preferred they ditched the slightly progressive tunes, then this one will be right up your street. Killer riffs, big choruses (including some chanty-style ones, like their early material), and a stunning production job. This and the new OVERKILL are the best old-school thrash discs I've heard in years (though the reformed FORBIDDEN have a new one soon too)...

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
