Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1982
HOME TOWN: Bay Area
MEMBERS:
Rob Dukes - vocals
Gary Holt - guitar
Lee Altus - guitar
Jack Gibson - bass
Paul Bostaph - drums

Tom Hunting, Kirk Hammett and Gary Holt founded Exodus in 1982, shortly after selecting an appropriate singer the band, Paul Baloff, who completed the line up perfectly and bringing the dream to fruition. Within the following year Exodus gained huge attention in the international underground scene, evolving from an insiders' tip of the tape trading community to a highly popular act. Innovative song writing and explosive live shows made the difference, Exodus brought Bay Area Thrash to the world and inspired many bands, among them Metallica, Testament, Death Angel and Vio-lence (respectively Machine Head). In 1983 Kirk Hammet left the band to join Metallica, and was replaced by Rick Hunolt, and soon after Rob McKillop complimented the mix. The debut "Bonded By Blood" was released two years later and became a timeless thrash classic still appreciated today. A vast tour with Slayer and Venom preceded next thus the name Exodus spread more and more.

Shortly before the second album "Pleasures Of The Flesh" showed up in 1987, Baloff left the band due to personal and musical differences and got replaced by Steve "Zetro" Souza (ex-Legacy). The line-up and chemistry was working for the creativity and the subsequent success of the band. With the studio records like; "Fabulous Disaster", "Impact Is Imminent" and "Force Of Habit" as well as the live album "Good Friendly Violent Fun" and the compilation "Lessons In Violence" Exodus kept on improving their style and promoted their music with a large number of gigs including tours with Pantera, Anthrax, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth and many others.

1992 saw the split of Exodus, affected by stress and personal problems. A short reunion happened 1996 (with their "old" singer Paul Baloff) with a tour through Europe and North America and the release of the second live record "Another Lesson In Violence". Another break took place until September 2001 when Exodus attended the "Thrash Of The Titans" benefit show featuring Legacy, Anthrax, S.O.D. and Death Angel. Afterwards the band started writing new material but got adjourned abruptly: Paul Baloff suffered a stroke on 2nd February 2002 and passed away. Back with Souza at the microphone Exodus continued working and finally finished the recording sessions for the new, ultimate comeback album "Tempo Of The Damned" in 2003.

The new Exodus album "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" is set to be released on October 4th 2005 and this will definitely be THE THRASH album of the year 2005!!!

Exodus are also gearing up for a USA tour and a European tour in November / December no one is safe from the shovel headed kill machine!!!
