Exodus to release new album in October

Official press release: 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 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. 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. Exodus album cover 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.
