It is now confirmed! The legendary Exodus will be releasing their new album, “Blood In, Blood Out,” on October 14th via Nuclear Blast Records! As we all know by now, this record marks the return of Steve “Zetro” Souza as the front man, plus it will feature a guest guitar solo from Kirk Hammett! What else can we expect? Gary Holt previously said that “This album is very fast and has more of a punk rock feel to it, whereas I think the last few EXODUS albums were metal epics, with longer songs. These songs are shorter and a little faster. It has a really different feel to it. It sounds great.”
We still have to wait until we hear our first new song, but today we have the cover artwork for you, which was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson! Gary added this about the artwork, ““The concept came from Par Olofsson – I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”
The time to start getting excited is now! We are 75 days away from the new Exodus album being in our ears!
