Bay Area thrash titans EXODUS are pleased to announce that their brand new album, Blood In, Blood Out, has charted at #38 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week! This comes in at a staggering 76 charting spots higher and nearly double the sales above the band’s last release in 2010. This concretes Blood In, Blood Out’s status as the band’s highest-charting album to date! The new album also is charting at #2 on the Hard Rock/Metal charts and #6 on the Independent charts.

Blood In, Blood Out has also debuted at #29 in Germany, #30 in Finland, #30 in Switzerland, #38 in Austria, #38 in the Czech Republic, #72 in the UK, #75 in France, #85 in the Netherlands, and #101 overall, #86 on Top Current Albums,  and #6 on Hard Music charts in Canada. This includes some territories that EXODUS has never charted in before!

These numbers come as no surprise, as Blood In, Blood Out has been praised by critics and fans alike as one of the best EXODUS albums of all time! In fact, Yahoo Music calls Blood In, Blood Out, “one of the most anticipated heavy metal records of the year”, and Rolling Stone calls the band “among the first and best” of thrash metal and touts the album as “recommended”.

 Check out what other critics have to say about Blood In, Blood Out!

“Pared down to a simple sentence, this album is fucking sick,” chimed the first web review for the record, penned by Blabbermouth’s Ray Van Horn, Jr. Shortly after, Decibel Magazine’s Kevin Stewart Panko gave great praise to both returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza and guitarists Gary Holt and Lee Altus, saying tracks on the record feature, “Sousa spitting forth from a venomous thesaurus and some of the most adventurous lead work that Holt and Altus have ever recorded.” The EXODUS rhythm section receives equal praise from About.com Heavy Metal’s Dave Schalek, who states, “[Tom] Hunting shows no signs of slowing down and bassist Jack Gibson anchors down the album’s bottom heavy sound.”

 EXODUS deliver the definite lesson in violence,” adds Rue Morgue’s Aaron Lupton, while Outburn Magazine offered positive remarks in both review and feature form. “A vintage thrash metal voice placed on top of an EXODUS sound again harnessed to perfection by Andy Sneap has resulted in an album that batters the eardrums as effectively as it boils the blood,” remarks Scott Alisoglu. The most recent stellar-rating review comes from New Noise Magazine, in which Brandon Ringo states, Once again, EXODUS has proven exactly why they have attained such a legendary stature over the years and are considered one of the greatest bands in thrash metal even 30 years later!”

Planetmosh’s own Dennis Jarman gave the album a 5* Review here

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
