Classic Members of Exodus to Join Metal Allegiance at 5th Anniversary Show
The "H-team" will be revived by Slayer's Gary Holt when he's joined by his current and former Exodus bandmates Tom Hunting and Rick Hunolt at the upcoming Metal Allegiance 5th anniversary performance in San Francisco.
That means four-fifths of a classic Exodus lineup will be on hand for the show, since the musicians are set to join frequent Exodus vocalist Steve "Zetro" Souza at the April 20 event celebrating the Mark Menghi-led supergroup that's known for featuring a wide array of guest contributors on their efforts.
Hunting and Hunolt are the latest names added to the bill for the final concert of four later this month, although each will feature a grouping of guest artists. The closing night at the Fillmore will also follow a screening of new metal documentary Murder in the Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story.
It was five years ago when Menghi, Mike Portnoy, Alex Skolnick, David Ellefson first got together as Metal Allegiance. Over the course of two albums and plenty of performances, the ensemble has collaborated with a litany of metal icons, playing sets that sprinkle their own original tunes among choice cover songs.
That will be represented on the anniversary tour, where Metal Allegiance will count Chuck Billy (Testament), John Bush (Armored Saint), Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon) as special guests. Additionally, Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) is slated to join in at the April 17 show in Phoenix.
