When we think of the phrase Bonded By Blood, we think of two things: a brotherhood that is meant to outlast the trials of war, pain, and time.

.. and the almighty EXODUS. With a bond forged in youth and decades-old friendship, the undisputed masters of thrash metal return with their eleventh studio album: PERSONA NON GRATA. Literally translating to an unwelcome or unacceptable person, PERSONA NON GRATA touches on themes of modern societal disgust and degradation. The people that disgust you – cut em out like cancer, explains guitarist Gary Holt. Who is that person? It could be anybody. Thats up to the listener. Who is Persona Non Grata to them? For decades, EXODUS has impressed us with the ability to attract opposing factions to their music because of its intensity and versatility. A track like The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves was inspired by the riots both in theme, and sound. Without seeming insensitive to the riots, the song is tongue in cheek about what the people beating on the rioters were expecting to happen. Did you think you would beat a smile onto their face? At 3 minutes in length, its probably the shortest EXODUS song weve ever done. It gets in, gets out, and is just crushing, describes Holt. While most of the songs do run on the shorter side, this album also comes equipped with crushing, epic tracks.
