Tom from EXODUS announces cancer treatment

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 10:54 AM (PST)
Hey Exodus fans and all metal folks. Keep Tom Hunting in your prayers or thoughts or hails (whatever you do) today.
The band wrote: With our never ending support for our bandmate, friend and brother. We Love You.

Important statement from our man Tom Hunting:

“Today I will be starting treatment for a squamous cell carcinoma. It’s a gastric tumor that was diagnosed in my upper stomach in February. I’m making this public to raise awareness for people to pay attention to symptoms of stomach and esophageal issues. If they persist, please go get it checked out. I’m not gonna be sheepish talking about it. I feel that if I can help someone with what I’ve learned, or someone out there has information to share with me, it’s a win-win! When you can name the enemy, it’s empowering, and you’re 1 step closer to killing it!
Ok, you’ve heard the bad news. The good news is he feels great physically! I’m gonna beat this like a fucking snare drum that owes me money!!! I’ve had great doctors and a great support system that is an army in itself. I’m ready for the fight!
We have a lot to celebrate this year with the release of what will be a career-defining album and tours to follow! I’m stoked for everyone to hear it, and even more excited to get out there and play some of it! I will see you all very soon! CHEERS!!!”

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 11:09 AM (PST)

exodus lineupIn an interview with Finland’s Kaaos TVExodus drummer Tom Hunting revealed that the band is planning to begin writing new material next month for their follow-up to 2014’s Blood In, Blood Out. He states:

“Gary and I are gonna start sitting down… He’s gonna write some riffs and we’re gonna start jamming in April. We’re not under any hurry or any kind of time constraints to come up with a new record, but we want to. Everybody’s motivated, and we have a little free time in April. ‘Cause we’ve been touring constantly for this album, and Gary’s got commitments to Slayer too, so we’ve gotta work around that. He’s a big part of this thing.”

DROT returned strong to Poughkeepsie, NY and The Chance Theater when Testament, Exodus and young pups Shattered Sun hit town. Don’t fret, the old wolves still had it and the up and comers certainly growled and howled as well. The night arguably belonged to Exodus (with two Heathen members filling in, I believe), Steve Souza yelling at the crowd that he hadn’t played The Chance in years. Souza has been miraculous since his return to the band and as much as I love the Rob Dukes era stuff, Steve “Zetro” has been continuing to kick serious ass live and prove Blood In, Blood Out was no fluke. The whole crowd pumped their fists and chanted like crazed hyenas forced to obey the Gods.

That said, Shattered Sun opened the night and you never would’ve known they were a new band if they weren’t so baby faced. The boys from Alice, TX who are recent Victory Records roster additions completely kick started the night and from the get go had support from a crowd who had mostly never heard them. “Hope Within Hatred” filled the room with melodic thrashing goodness and hair and necks started banging accordingly. It will be great when these guys have more songs the crowd loves and let’s hope they don’t have any setbacks like recent hopefuls Lazarus A.D. who were doing so well as a new thrash band only to really slow down (plus, RIP to Lazarus’ drummer).

Testament were the proven metal icons of underground integrity that you’d expect. Like Anthrax these days the Testament guys are really on point with their vision, line up, new music and everything the fans crave. I cant wait for their next release! Chuck still has the most untouchable below in metal, though Mad Joe Black from Wisdom In Chains has a considerably huge bellow as well if you like hardcore music. But yeah, Testament!!!

The most compelling work of the year was in doom metal, for the most part. From Electric Wizard to Yob to Castle and Witch Mountain the playing field was mostly ruled by thunderous, brontosaurus footprint sized-Sabbathian black worship, with the exception of Ex-Trouble singer Eric Wagner’s White Metal doomers The Skull (who nonetheless bettered most of the competition anyway). That said, thrash held down the legacy (Testament pun intended) of the genre well. It was a banner year for thrash, one of the best in memory. From Shrapnel’s charged The Virus Conspiracies to Iron Reagan and Hammercult to Exodus’ frenetic and feral reunion with Steve Souza (and Kirk Hammett, for that matter) there was much to get whiplash over.

The most anticipated thrash tour of the year was Slayer‘s return Stateside with Exodus and Suicidal in tow. The Albany, NY date at the Washington Avenue Armory was no let down, a high energy mug fest that made you remember all the reasons why you fell in love with these bands in the first place. It was a  communal strafing air blood raid but instead of a Copter or drone strike it was riff after riff falling like hail.

exodus zetroFollowing this morning’s news that Exodus had parted ways with Rob Dukes, the iconic thrash metal band just announced that Steve “Zetro” Souza has rejoined the band. Guitarist Gary Holt states:

“As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!”

Zetro then went on to say the following, “I spent a great part of my life with Exodus. That blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I’m very excited!”

Zetro served as the lead singer of Exodus from 1986 to 1992, and again from 2002 to 2004. He appeared on five albums with the band, including their 1989 classic Fabulous Disaster and 2004 comeback Tempo of the Damned.

A new album from Exodus, which will be their first since 2010’s Exhibit B: The Human Condition, is expected to be released later this year. It is not known, however, if Zetro will be involved in the recording.

I don’t know. I’m just talking shit. I don’t know what we’re gonna do. We’ve got no plan. We’re just going with what feels right. If we end up with another 74-minute record, so be it.”
