Dave Mustaine once said that he thought Exodus should be considered one of the Big 4 instead of Anthrax. I do not really agree with him, but it is tough to say he is completely wrong. Exodus's first album was thrash in its purest form. It was all razor-sharp riffs, frenetic vocals, and pounding drums, without a single soft song. Quite simply, Exodus's first album was the perfect embodiment of thrash. The band released several more great albums too before their decline for a few years. They put out good music once again, but after several vocalist changes and now their much longer songs, they barely sound like they once did.
FAVORITE ALBUM: BONDED BY BLOOD
