Cover artwork for new Exodus album released
Legendary thrash metal band Exodus have revealed the album cover artwork for their upcoming album ‘Blood In, Blood Out’. The new record will hit retail and digital outlets this October via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including Exodus’ ‘Let There Be Blood’ (2008).
The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains:
“I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”
‘Blood In, Blood Out’ is Exodus’ tenth studio album and marks the band’s first release with returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s ‘Tempo Of The Damned’. Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett recently announced his special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album.
All fans of old-school thrash metal stay posted for further updates. This album shapes up to be on of the highlights of 2014.
