EXODUS “Shovel Headed Kill Machine” /CD/



The seventh full-length studio album by the legendary American Thrash Metal band.
The album comes after a huge change in the band's lineup. Prior to recording, Exodus lost three of the five band members that recorded the amazing "Tempo Of The Damned". This is the first album to feature new vocalist Rob Dukes, after the departure of Steve "Zetro" Souza during the band's South American tour in support of the band's previous album "Tempo Of The Damned". It is also the band's first studio album not to feature Rick Hunolt on guitars, with Lee Altus as his replacement, and the only Exodus album to feature Paul Bostaph on drums after Tom Hunting's second departure as a result of the reoccurrence of the illness that prompted him to depart in 1989.
"Shovel Headed Kill Machine" consists of ten tracks, all of which have a common goal of bludgeoning you to death. Every track on the album is awesome. It's not unlike "Reign In Blood", "Darkness Descends" or "Pleasure To Kill" in that regard. Helping the album's cause in a big way is the unique mix provided by the always-awesome Andy Sneap. There is a shovel headed kill machine on the loose with Gary Holt sitting behind the wheel – and he is angry! This machine will stop for nothing and is relentless! Listen to serial killers such as "Raze", "Deathamphetamine", "I Am Abomination", "Going Going Gone" or "44 Magnum Opus" and you will know exactly what its mean!
If you like or just merely appreciate Thrash, this is required listening. And if you don't like it, well you just don't like Metal! Enjoy your Neutral Milk Hotel, loser!!)) This will definitely Thrash Metal album of the year 2005!!!
