Thrash is a wonderful genre, isn't it? Especially when it comes out of the San Francisco Bay Area. California birthed yet another monumental thrash act in Exodus, and the band's debut, 'Bonded by Blood,' is essential for any metalhead looking for grit and speed.

'Bonded by Blood' gave Exodus a solid foundation to base their long, albeit on-and-off career on. If you can listen to 'Strike of the Beast' without breaking everything within a 10-foot radius, you're doing it wrong.
