EXODUS: 'Downfall' Video Released

"Downfall", the new video from San Francisco Bay Area metallers EXODUS, can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by SchneppZone director Jon Schnepp of "Metalocalypse" fame (the animated program about DETHKLOK, the world's most popular death metal band, on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim) and was shot on April 1 on the old set of the television sitcom "Night Court". In addition, it features animated sequences by Los Angeles-based traditional animator Jeremy Polgar.

About getting to work with EXODUS again, Schnepp stated, "I think their music is incredible and they always give me 100 percent at the video shoot. Working with these legends of thrash metal again has been a blast!"

"Downfall" comes off EXODUS' latest album, "Exhibit B: The Human Condition", which sold around 4,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 114 on The Billboard 200 chart.

EXODUS' previous CD, "The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A", opened with 3,600 units back in October 2007.

"Exhibit B: The Human Condition" was released in North America on May 18 via Nuclear Blast Records.

EXODUS will help kick off Ozzfest 2010 with a one-off appearance at the San Bernardino show on Saturday, August 14.

Commented guitarist Gary Holt: "We are WAY more than fired up to announce that EXODUS will be playing the SoCal date on Ozzfest! We will be filling the slot usually occupied on the tour by KINGDOM OF SORROW who can't make this one show. We were asked if we wanted to jump in, and we said, 'Fuck yes!' See everybody there!"

"Exhibit B: The Human Condition" was recorded this past December in Northern California with producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ARCH ENEMY, KREATOR).

EXODUS recently took part in the "Rust In Peace 20th Anniversary Tour" with MEGADETH and TESTAMENT.
