Exodus

Exodus is an American thrash metal band formed in 1979 in Richmond, California. They have gone through numerous lineup changes, two extended hiatuses, and the deaths of two former band members. Their current lineup consists of guitarists Gary Holt and Lee Altus, bassist Jack Gibson, drummer Tom Hunting, and lead vocalist Steve "Zetro" Souza. Hunting is one of the original members, and departed from Exodus twice, in 1989 and 2004, but rejoined in 2007. Holt joined the band about two years after its formation, and is the only member of Exodus to appear on all their releases.

  • Exodus toured with Rob Zombie and Slayer in 2011 on their Hell on Earth tour as the opening act. Gary Holt filled in for Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman during the tour after Hanneman contracted necrotizing fasciitis from a spider bite.
  • Members of Exodus would often confront people wearing G.L.A.M. band T-shirts and "demand that they let them cut it to pieces with thier pocket knives - or they'd do it while he wore it". They would then make wristbands out of the shirts as kind of a "badge of honor" to wear on stage.
  • Guitarist Lee Altus was offered a position as the lead guitarist in Megadeth during the late 80's but declined due to the excessive drug use in the band.
  • Exodus' 2010 release Exhibit B: The Human Condition is dedicated to the memory of Evile bassist Mike Alexander, who died in October 2009.
  • The original title of their album 'Bonded by Blood' was 'A Lesson in Violence' but their record label forced them to change it, since they considered it too violent.
