INCOMING: Who's down for some heavy duty music therapy tonight?! Get there early for openers Exodus. We caught Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies at the past 2 Chicago Riot Fests respectively and they've still got it and more. They killed it live. If you live for inhumanly fast riffs and punk tinged metal, go already. You'll regret it if you miss this.

EXODUS ‘Salt The Wound’
Featuring METALLICA’s Kirk Hammett
New Album “Blood In, Blood Out” Available October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast
Bay Area thrash metal pioneers EXODUS unleash their blistering new track ‘Salt The Wound’, which features an intense guitar solo from none other than original EXODUS/Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett! ‘Salt The Wound’ is cut from the new EXODUS album Blood In, Blood Out, which hit stores on October 14, 2014 in North America via Nuclear Blast.
Guitarist Gary Holt explains that Hammett was more than ready to play on Blood In, Blood Out. “Having Kirk play on the new EXODUS record kind of came about after I played so many shows with Metallica while touring with Slayer over the past four year. It started the same way most of these things do, as a lot of chatter while having a good time, but Kirk was more stoked to play on the new record than anyone. He never got to play on anything with EXODUS since the first demo despite being a founding member, so I think it really meant a lot to him. Coming full circle so to speak. So I chose the song "Salt the Wound" since I thought the rhythm section for the first lead was right in his wheelhouse, and he killed it! He came in and busted out several takes and his solo compliments mine perfectly. Then we drank beer and ate barbecue! Epic time!”
“It felt really casual, really cool – just like it did back in 1980 when we were all just hanging out back in the day,” Kirk Hammett stated to RollingStone.com in July.
Kirk Hammett isn’t the only special guest to grace Blood In, Blood Out. Crafting an industrial sound bed on the intro to the album opener ‘Black 13’ is electronic music producer Dan the Automator (GORILLAZ, MIKE PATTON, DELTRON 3030), and TESTAMENT’s Chuck Billy lends his signature roar to the track ‘BTK.’

With a career spanning 34 years, EXODUS have not only helped shape and define the thrash metal genre for over three decades, but continually seek to raise its standards. One of the forefathers of the Bay Area scene that became known and envied throughout the world, the band’s 1985 debut album, Bonded By Blood, has since become a legacy album featuring mandatory live staples such as "Strike Of The Beast," "A Lesson In Violence," and the album’s title track. Formed in 1980, the band’s original members included Tom Hunting on drums, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Tim Agnello on guitars, and Carlton Melson on bass. With a line-up that has evolved throughout the years, the current incarnation of EXODUS charges into the future with returning frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza on vocals, Gary Holt and Lee Altus on guitars, Tom Hunting on drums, and Jack Gibson on bass. In 2014, EXODUS closed the first half of the year with stellar performances at Kirk Hammett’s Fear FestEvil and Rock On The Range, as well as a groundbreaking tour with fellow thrash legends Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies. To date, EXODUS has released nine studio albums, two live albums, and one compilation. Their most recent release, Exhibit B: The Human Condition, debuted in the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in 2010.
