“Whenever we play with any Bay Area band, we always put a little bit extra,” admits guitarist Lee Altus of Bay Area thrashers EXODUS. “If you wanna really see EXODUS at their best, it’s always with another Bay Area band – like DEATH ANGEL. We have this friendly competition, too. They know – anytime you play with us, we’re going after you! After that, we’ll have drinks together… we’ll laugh about it… but right now, we’re going after you! Oh, now we’re playing with TESTAMENT? I’m gonna DIE on that stage!!!”
In the second of five exclusive trailers on GUITAR WORLD.com that showcases material from the bonus “Making Of” DVD entitled “Blood Upon The Goat,” Altus reveals that he wrote the tracks “Honor Killings” and “Body Harvest” appearing on the band’s tenth studio album, Blood In, Blood Out, due out in North America on October 14th, via Nuclear Blast. The bonus DVD is included in the album’s digi-pak and import box set versions.
