Exodus - Riot Act

Several nice band was playing on this day (Thursday), including Exodus, a band I think I run into almost everywhere. Later that evening we encountered on Exodus at the hotel, we stayed on the same place, chatted a bit with Rob Dukes and Jack Gibson, really nice dudes, the guys were on their way to the airport in the middle of the night for the next gig that would be somewhere in Greece.

Here are some pictures…

Todays tune ”Riot Act” is taken from the eighth studio album "Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A" by thrash metal band Exodus, released on October 23, 2007. This is the second album featuring Rob Dukes on vocals, but it also marks the second comeback of longtime original Exodus drummer Tom Hunting. Hunting's last appearance was on Exodus's 2004 album Tempo of the Damned. This also is the second Exodus album to feature Lee Altus on guitars.

The album takes its name from an experimental novel of the same name by J.G. Ballard published in 1970. The name of the album is the same as a planned album that was to be released by the Los Angeles thrash metal outfit Dark Angel in 1992.

Guitarist Gary Holt has stated it is named "Exhibit A" because Exodus had planned to release "Exhibit B" soon afterward, although that album was not released until 2010.

The single released from the album was "Funeral Hymn". There was also a music video released for "Riot Act” which is today's tune.

The song "Riot Act" was released as DLC for the video game Rock Band 2 via the Rock Band Network on June 6, 2010.
