EXODUS
THE ATROCITY EXHIBITION: EXHIBIT "A"
NUCLEAR BLAST

Thrash metal titans Exodus once again produce the goods necessary for a neck-snapping good time on the nine-track THE ATROCITY EXHIBITION: EXHIBIT A. Pulverizing drums, acerbic yet acrobatic twin guitars, and a genuinely pissed-off vocal delivery are some of the highlights this disc showcases, firmly setting this unsung Bay Area unit's return in concrete. Tracks like "Funeral Hymn" bowl the listener over with a barrage of furious six-string grooves backed up with sledgehammer rhythms while cuts like "Children of a Worthless God" find the band barely recognizable of its '80s metallic self while ripping it up with an unsurpassed intensity. Exodus surprisingly takes its sound into the future with dark-shaded brutality and an overall menacing malaise, hardly reminiscent of the band that gave you anthems like "Toxic Waltz" or "Low Rider" yet perfect for today's metal climate.
