Short and simple. EXODUS made the impossible possible: With “The Atrocity Exhibition – Exhibit A” (2007) they recorded the best album of their long running career. What? "Bonded By Blood"? Yeah, sure. It´s a classic. But in some years "The Atrocity Exhibition (Exhibit A)” will have the same status. After listening to this record only and nothing else it´s perfectly clear: It´s THE Thrash album since… yeah, well… since what?
The band hailing from the once so mighty Bay Area has taped their Wacken Show 2008, put together some kick ass material from behind the scenes, on the road, backstage and on stage, added some of their best videos ever made, as well as a classic interview from 1985 and called this amazing package “Shovel Headed Tour Machine (Live At Wacken And Other Assorted Atrocities)”. It marks another milestone in the career of Gary Holt and Tom Hunting´s thrash metal bulldozer EXODUS!
The roaring blast at Wacken where they mainly played songs from their latest album plus some real EXODUS highlights is epic as almost 80.000 chanting fans go nuts in front of the stage! Witness the intensity that is EXODUS and admit there is no better live band within this music genre!
EXODUS strenghten their status once more! The legend lives on!
