Heavy metal fans rejoice! The most anticipated heavy metal release of 2014 is here and was well worth the wait, with Blood In, Blood Out marking the return of vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza. Let me first state that I was a fan of the band through the Rob Duke era, but there is just something so familiar and soothing (if that is possible) in once again having Zetro at the helm of this legendary thrash act. The prodigal son has come home and the result is, what I feel, the band’s best effort to date.

The wait is over! Today, 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, hitting stores on October 14, 2014 in North America via Nuclear Blast.
