  • Exodus have experienced something of a resurgence lately, and well deservedly. The band that gave Metallica Kirk Hammett first got the attention of the metal community with “Bonded By Blood”, a thrash fest with the great pair of lead guitarists Gary Holt and the now-departed Rick Hunolt. This line-up has changed a lot over the years, with Gary Holt, being the principle songwriter and leader of the band basically the only constant member. However, the line-up stabilized for a few albums, with Steve Souza replacing Paul Baloff on vocals for the second CD “Pleasure Of The Flesh”. “Force Of Habit” slipped through the cracks and was unavailable for a long time until Caroline picked it up and reissued it in remastered form.
    While not on a par quite with “Tempo Of The Damned” or “The Atrocity Exhibit: Exhibit A”, “Force Of Habit” is a likable thrash album and gives us a little extra, such as the Memphis Horns on one cut and their trademark humor on “Feeding Time At The Zoo”. It’s a dependable heavy rocking album and worth the trouble getting if you’re an Exodus fan. I don’t like the packaging, however – the CD slips out of its sleeve too easily, but I can fix that with an empty jewel case.
