Exodus posts lyric video

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Bay Area thrash metal provocateurs EXODUS have just revealed ‘Salt The Wound,’ the first new song in four years from their upcoming new hate campaign »Blood In, Blood Out«, featuring a guest guitar solo by original EXODUS & current METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett and lead vocal work by returning band frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza.

“Having Kirk play on the new EXODUS record kind of came about after I played so many shows with METALLICA while touring with SLAYER over the past four years,” shares guitarist & songwriter Gary Holt. “It started the same way most of these things do, as a lot of chatter while having a good time, but Kirk was more stoked to play on the new record than anyone. He never got to play on anything with EXODUS since the first demo despite being a founding member, so I think it really meant a lot to him. Coming full circle so to speak. So I chose the song ‘Salt The Wound’ since I thought the rhythm section for the first lead was right in his wheelhouse, and he killed it! He came in and busted out several takes and his solo compliments mine perfectly. Then we drank beer and ate barbecue! Epic time!”

About his recent experience recording with his first heavy metal band, Hammett revealed to RollingStone.com this past July: “It felt really casual, really cool – just like it did back in 1980 when we were all just hanging out back in the day.” 

 
Hammett is one of three special guests whose work graces »Blood In, Blood Out«, EXODUS’ tenth studio album due out on October 10th (EU), October 13th (UK) and October 14th (NA) via Nuclear Blast. Electronic music producer Dan the Automator (GORILLAZ, MIKE PATTON, DELTRON 3030) crafts an industrial sound bed on the intro to the album opener ‘Black 13’ and TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy lends his signature roar to ‘BTK.’

Produced by Andy Sneap (ACCEPT, KREATOR, MEGADETH), »Blood In, Blood Out« features cover illustration by Swedish artist Par Olofsson (PSYCROPTIC, ABYSMAL DAWN, REVOCATION).
