    There are very few albums that are dealing with the intensity of this album. Exodus are legends in the thrash genre, and this is where it all began. If you are new to EXODUS or just discovered them on “Tempo Of The Damned (2004)” or “Shovel Headed Kill Machine (2005),” then this is the next album, which you need to pick on. If you only look at the introduction, if you are EXODUS, then you must be here! Bonded By Blood in 1984 and lasted almost a year to cycle through red tape. I believe that if this had been released in 1984 as planned, EXODUS would have much more respect from the metal community. Now to the music.
      Bonded By Blood begins with the title track. The riffs are insane and heavy and very memorable. Paul Baloff (original singer) sounds angry and violent than what came before, that this album with the exception of Slayer's “Show No Mercy”. The riffs are full and chunky, which want you to snap your neck banging! Although I will not spoil the album for you, by each track, I will say that the following are the tracks stand out: “And then there were no”, which is a mid-tempo song with vocals, all on the place. This song is probably the coolest and catchiest on the album. Then there's “lesson of violence” is a song that is full of piss and vinegar and is still an exodus of “classics” to this day. This was also the original album title, before the use of “Bonded By Blood”. Any finally, you have “Strike of the Beast”, which usually includes EXODUS their device with one to this day. A great song with heavy kick drums and fast riffs.
      This album is so underrated by the metal community that it is criminal. This album clearly has his own against the debuts of Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax and Megadeth, but for whatever reason Garner is not the same success as these bands. I have over 2000 CDs and this still makes it in my player at least one per week. A great album of a great band! Definitely, that I highly recommend it!

    In my own little world, this is the single best album ever released, and it bothers me that so many reviewers feel the need to adapt their THRASH 5 stars with the label. Just like today's bands are jammed into a small box “Grindcore” “Melo-Death” “Doom” etc, metal in the 80s was always broken breaks sub genres. It was Thrash Exodus? It was D.R.I. and the two bands are not exactly identical. Metallica was Thrash? What was Slayer? Was Dark Angel Death Metal? And can ask someone from the Brother P-Touch of Death Angel?
      In describing one of these bands in the historical context of the heavy music, labels are meaningless.
      Exodus was the best thing she has done. For a monster of an album they had not the same. If there is then no exodus. . . . make your own paltry 311 or Audioslave populated future here. The California-bands were so interconnected in the early 80s that one without the other could have meant the existence of none. And without them would Gothenburg still a picturesque town in which people eat meatballs and you hear nothing but Abba and Ace of Bass.
      bonded labor of blood is one of the 5 most important records ever made heavier. You get the other four.

    Possibly the most influential Thrash album ever made.
    Of all the Thrash debuts to emerge in the early 80s, few made the impact that Exodus struck with this album.

    Awesome album.
    While Exodus never quite reached the heights of Metallica or Megadeth, they delivered quite a slab of groovy metal noise throughout their career.

    Sick, Fast, Abrasive Metal
    This is an awesome thrash album. Exodus should have Anthrax’s place in the Big Four of Thrash. Songs sound a bit similar but they are all fast and have killer riffs so its ok.

    Criminally Underrated Group!
    Well, I wasn’t born an English Major. And in younger days, I got bitten by the heavy metal bug really bad.

    ESSENTIAL Thrash Record
    Exodus, in my opinion, do not get the credit that they deserve. They tend to get overlooked when talking about thrash metal bands, probably because they weren’t as well-known as…
