EXODUS TO RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM “BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT” ON OCTOBER 14TH

exodus2014lineup638 Legendary thrash metal band Exodus have revealed the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, Blood In, Blood Out, hitting retail and digital stores on October 14th through Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUS’ Let There Be Blood.

The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains, “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!”

Blood In, Blood Out is Exodus’ 10th studio album, and marks the band’s first release with new vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. It was also just announced via Rolling Stone that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett churned out a special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album. More details are set to be released soon, including release dates, track listing information, pre-order specifics, and more.

To celebrate the imminent release of Blood In, Blood Out, Exodus will be busy touring this fall – with a full South American tour leading into a supporting run with fellow metal titans Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies on the Scion-sponsored fall leg of their United States onslaught. The tour begins on November 12th in Oakland, CA at The Fox Theater and will tour throughout the states, coming to close in Detroit, MI at The Fillmore on December 5th. Tickets are on sale now!

Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, Exodus is making VIP experience packages available for the entire tour. The packages are on sale now!

  1. i’m excited for souza being back, not really a fan of the album cover but thats okay. music is most important.

    • James K. says:

      I agree, the music is what matters. Classic, aggressive Exodus is what I’m hoping for. And I’m not that crazy about the album cover either. A bunch of ghouls eating their own arms looks like something some lame death metal band would have on an album cover.

  2. I am really looking forward to this new album!

  3. Dissapointing album cover – especially for a comeback album… not that they have been away … maybe better called a reunion album? dunno – either way hope this is a good one…

  4. Patrick S. says:

    Too sci-fy looking. Not what I expected. Musically they almost always deliver. Gary Holt is one of the best metal riff writers on the planet. I’m definitely counting the days! Hope to see them live too.
