Exodus - _Another Lesson in Violence_
(Century Media, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Okay... so they are back and touring once again. With the original line-up intact (add new bassist Jack Gibson), Bay Area legends Exodus return to the metal world with a mediocre but still entertaining live release entitled _Another Lesson in Violence_. The album, recorded in March at a sold-out show in their hometown of San Francisco, is comprised of all the material from the classic 1986 debut LP, _Bonded by Blood_, and some other older material. And how is the recording? It's okay, but nothing really stunning or earth shattering. It's great to hear Exodus crank out all the early thrash metal and actually hear where a lot of today's music spawned from. The original sound and direction of the band has been preserved over the years, and the music is still played with passion and played flawlessly. Sure, this is 'old school' stuff, but a real treat for metal fans who may not have been around when Exodus was big. Interest in this album and touring throughout this year should help bring these veterans back into the limelight. Hopefully 'cause it's been a while since we've heard thrash metal this raw and this good. C'mon kids, let's face it: Exodus are classic. That can't be denied.
