Biography

*** THE THRASH METAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR! ***

"Exhibit B: The Human Condition". It's really, really sick. It's really different from the last one and it's really different from the two before. But it's 100 percent EXODUS. Out of the last three, this one is faster, but it's also a little more melodic, and it's also a little bit more old school. Some of ... Read more in Amazon's Exodus Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Exodus Album 6 Dec 2008
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Bonded By Blood, Exodus's debut album holds a special place in thrash metal history and courts intrigue with its back story. It has also gained a new level of appreciation after the unfortunate passing of the late Paul Baloff.
Pleasures of the Flesh; their second has always been cruelly overlooked and underrated.
This album was the first Exodus album to both stand tall on purely musical merit and gain the respect and love of the fans.
With the brutal Pantera-esque opener 'The Last Act of Defiance,' the speedy 'Verbal Razors,' and the dumb but brilliant single 'The Toxic Waltz,' its not difficult to see why.
Vocalist Steve 'Zetro,' Souza, with his AC/DC style of vocals and enthusiasm, shines on this record, adding a real depth and punch to the overall sound (and its punchy as hell already.)
The riffs on this album are intensely catchy and memorable, switching between the band's trademarked buzzing take on the bay area crunch and a new groove metal style several times in every song.
This kind of diversity helps Exodus music stay fresh and as with all their albums, this has its own unique style and character which separates it from not only their contempories but also their own back catalogue.
Their sophmore album may have introded a level of diversity and maturity missing from their debut; but Fabulous Disaster goes above and beyond the call of duty.
The band are on top form, the musicianship is astounding, the energy level is high and the band sound truely vital. The guitar work on this album is just jaw dropping, with 'The H-Team,' displaying dizzying virtuosity in songs such as the semi-epic 'Like Father Like Sun,' and arguably the best song the band ever has written; the titular 'Fabulous Disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Exodus album 4 April 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Fabulous Disaster is Exodus 3rd and best album. Musically this is pretty similar to Pleasures of the Flesh, with one main exception - the odd forgettable filler track that dragged down that album are no more, with every track on Fabulous Disaster being a masterclass in thrash riffing. The album is constantly heavy as hell, but the band add some variety ranging from the frantic speed of Verbal Razors to the epic Like Father, Like Son, while Cajun Hell adds a bluesy swamp feel to the metal, and Toxic Waltz's hilarious dance lyrics are only intensified by the savage riffing of the band. Just to add a little light-hearted breathing space into an otherwise very intense album there are also a couple of cheesy yet enjoyable cover versions in the form of Low Rider and Overdose. For fans of un-commercial heads-down thrash metal this is Exodus' definitive album, and damn near impossible to find fault with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Fabulous Disaster! 2 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the third album by one of the first thrash metal bands ever. This is the second with Steve Souza, and while the style of the songs is still very similar, there's a slight change in the lyrics, with a higher content of humour.
The album overall is produced as well as any of the other Exodus albums (those being Bonded By Blood, Pleasures Of The Flesh, Impact Is Imminent, and Force Of Habit), with the typical 'sheet metal' sound of thrash guitars. The drums, while competent, aren't groundbreaking.
There's also 2 covers, Low Rider, and Overdose, which are not completely expected.
Best songs, Toxic Waltz (apparently the song that killed thrash), Last Act of Defiance, and the title track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Friendly violent fun..... 13 April 2005
By Murray
Format:Audio CD
....an apt motto for a band in this case. Exodus could never claim to have pushed the thrash metal envelope, but they always managed to knock out a few catchy, if frothingly aggressive metal tunes amidst all the daft posturing and live perfrormances marred by crowd violence.
"Fabulous Disaster" is without a doubt thier finest album, home in particular to the mind numbingly stoopid and yet irresistable ode to moshing, "The Toxic Waltz". The performanes are without fail tight and powerful, the bands guitar duo, the infamous "H-Team" in particular seem to lack the ability to pick up a guitar without spinning off a monstrously great riff,or five.
Recomended to fans of thrash, or any kind of metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME ALBUM 25 Jun 2001
By A C
Format:Audio CD
For those who were disappointed with Pleasures of the Flesh this is your cure, this is probably one of the best thrash metal recordings ever, I place this next to Metallica's Master of puppets, Testament's Practice what you preach, Suicidal Tendencies' Lights...Camera...Revolution and Megadeth's So Far...So Good...So What. Exodus sound, harder, meaner and more dangerous in this album then they ever have in their previous albums. Steve "Zetro" Suoza has became something of a thrash Bon Scott, and on track 10 they do an excellent cover of the AC/DC classic "overdose". I don't want to say anymore about this album, because from my point of view every song is a classic and you should go and get this album now and judge for yourself. If you are a die hard thrasher you won't be disappointed.
