EXODUS have signed a worldwide contract with the Austrian record label Napalm Records
EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt commented: “EXODUS are extremely excited to announce that we are joining the family at Napalm Records!
“It’s time for a new chapter for the band, and we are stoked to be joining the label and are starting to put our foot on the gas and get ourselves prepared for the next record! They convinced us with their passion and love for the band, and where we will be going in the future, we couldn’t say no.
“It’s time to push even further and not only continue to run right over people with our brand of thrash, it’s time to increase the body count! Here’s to new beginnings with Napalm Records!”
Thomas Caser, CEO, Napalm Records, adds: “We are proud to announce this signing of one of the most influential metal bands in the world — one that has proven to always deliver the highest quality throughout the decades of their career. We cannot wait to start the work and on the road together! Welcome to the Napalm family — EXODUS!”
EXODUS‘s freshest masterpiece, “Persona Non Grata,” burst onto the scene in November 2021 like a fire-breathing dragon with a Nuclear Blast Records stamp of approval. These thrashers hit the studio in Lake Almanor, California, armed with their musical swords and a couple of talented engineers—Steve Lagudi and, of course, the band themselves.
The album was produced by none other than the mighty EXODUS themselves. They were like mad scientists concocting the perfect sonic potion. And who stepped in to sprinkle some mixing magic? Andy Sneap, the wizard extraordinaire. It’s like they brought in the Avengers of the metal world to ensure maximum eargasmic satisfaction.
Remember those times EXODUS teamed up with Swedish artist Pär Olofsson for their album artwork? Well, lightning does strike thrice! These guys just couldn’t resist the artistic prowess of Mr. Olofsson, so they decided to join forces for the third time. It’s like a bromance of epic proportions. Pär’s brushstrokes breathed life into the album, making it a visual feast for the metalheads’ eyes.
“Persona Non Grata” was like the long-awaited sequel to their 2014 hit, “Blood In Blood Out.” It was like the band‘s phoenix rising from the ashes, proving that they’re unstoppable.
