EXODUS: ZETRO SOUZA Sits Out South American Tour, EXHUMED Singer Fills In

EXODUS frontman Steve "Zetro" Souza was forced to sit out the band's South American tour after falling ill during the group's Japanese trek. Filling in for Zetro in South America is EXHUMED frontman Matt Harvey.

According to one fan's posting on the band's official message board, Matt did a "great job" at the opening date of the South American tour on Saturday (Sept. 11) in Mexico City. "[Guitarist] Gary [Holt] told the crowd the reason why Zetro was not in EXODUS [last night] before 'Scar Spangled Banner'," the fan writes. "Matt did some minor fuck-ups, but it is natural because he had a couple of days since EXODUS called him to do vocals for the South American dates, but the Mexican audience received him well, I think he fitted well in EXODUS, he knows his fucking metal.

"The crowd was 'unbelieveable' in [guitarist Rick] Hunolt's words, fans from the center, north, and south Mexico (I traveled 10 hours by bus to attend this show). The moshpit was fucking wild, 'stage diving' even from the 'mezzanine' of [Hard Rock Live], and we all enjoyed the show; the guys [were] very down-to-earth, signing everything, from LPs, CDs, posters, bumper stickers, to checks from the bar."
