Legendary thrash metal band EXODUS have revealed the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, Blood In, Blood Out, hitting retail and digital outlets this fall via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUS’ Let There Be Blood (2008).
The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains: “I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”
Blood In, Blood Out is EXODUS’ tenth studio album and marks the band’s first release with returning vocalistSteve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo Of The Damned. Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett recently announced his special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album via Rolling Stone. More album & pre-order details will be released soon.
