{     Exodus "Shovel Headed Kill Machine"     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2005/11/Exodus%20Shovel%20Headed%20Kill%20Machine-thumb.jpg

After last year's "Tempo of the Damned" was released heads turned and ears perked. Thrash masters Exodus had spat a boiling bullet of yellow goo at the world. It kept eye patch salesmen in business better than a pirate convention at a shooting range, but a fluke of rare brilliance was collectively suspected given their on again off again behavior in the nineties. Things fell apart quickly proving detractors right.

Even though most of the members were victims of bad life choices and/or circumstances beyond their control (R.I.P. Paul Baloff) the name carried on. Exodus resurfaced a year later with one original member and an album full of the ole thumpety thump that led them to power back when Kirk Hammett was still in the band (and well before he became Some Kind Of therapy addicted pink boy).

This year Exodus is Paul Bostaph (Dave Lombardo's understudy in Slayer) machine gunning the cylinders, Rob Dukes squarling venom out of the pit of his testes like Suicidaam the Werewolf: Code Red Detainee at Abu Cheney, with Dr's. Gary "The Survivor" Holt and Lee "Heathen" Altus prescribing hard fast doses of meth-adamantium to all the twitchy riff addicts.

"I Am Abomination", "Raze," and "Karma's Messenger" completely wreck. Hear those wings whooshing behind you? Duck! That's Bay Area Thrash getting ready to fly betwixt thine rosey hindflaps.

Jeah! The only survivors (except Death Angel). The only band who don't put on the three stripes and don't care for the trends. Metal never ever have been about trends. This album is a powerful thrash A-bomb from the ultimate and one and only trash sultans. This is my opinion. Poor Rick and f***ing drugs!!!!!! and wellcome Lee,Paul & Rob it's the begining of a beautiful "friendship"!!!!!!

"back when Kirk Hammett was still in the band (and well before he became Some Kind of Therapy addicted pink boy)"

I'm assuming that's supposed to be an attempt at being funny, if that's the case he's failed miserably.
