    Pretty fabulous and certainly no disaster.
    Exodus have progressed quite a bit from there brutal debut, the inconquerable, “Bonded by Blood” and seemed to have matured and retained a certain sense of humor into there third…

    a thrash classic
    This is probably my favorite Exodus album. I could do with out the two cover songs, and Cajun Hell is a bit too long but those are my only complaints.

    One of the finest thrash albums EVER!
    I have always called Exodus the finest metal bands never to make it. Perhaps this has what kept them producing some of the finest thrash metal albums ever created.

    After listening to bands like Metallica and Testament, I have in the Act of Thrash Metal. I recently bought the Exodus Fabulous Disaster and was thrilled. The album is flawless from beginning to end. The solo on the record is great, and the guitar riffs really kick. Some of my favorite tracks are the Toxic Waltz, Verbal Razors Open Season, and the last Act of Defiance, but the whole recording kicks ass, the whole band shows talent. Even Steve Souza, a lot of people find annoying, is a great singer, his voice fits perfectly. I found it strange to find not one but two covers on the CD, but they are well done (love the leads in Low Rider). If you like thrash metal, you must buy this CD. It would be a sin not to own.

    Criminally Underrated Group!
    Giving you a brief rundown of where I stand, I think “Bonded By Blood” is arguably their best. “Pleasures of the Flesh” had its moments.

    Another excellent album by the world `s most underrated bands of all time – Exodus. Although not as angry guilt of blood work this album contains some classic thrash, thrash music that all fairy-tale lovers will like. Lead singer Steve Souza, who sounds like a pumped up Bon Scott (former AC / DC singer RIP) is just incredible on the song. I have some bad reviews on Souza, but believe me this guy has the perfect style for this band. Highlites include toxic WALTZ, last act of DEFIANCE, overdose (great remake of AC / DC `s most underrated song from the Let There Be Rock album), and the ear blistering Like Father, Like Son This song is spectacular from the beginning until the end (8 min.) So, if you don `t know anything Exodus it` s time you knew who they are, so this album or buy the pioneering Bonded by Blood. Rock on.

    Everybody’s doing the toxic waltz !!!!!!
    Exodus reached the maximum level of technical speed with “Fabulos Disaster”, they improved a lot after “Bonded by blood” and “Pleassures of the flesh” despite the constant…

    I am impressed with the music on this CD. The end of the eighties were a great time for speed-thrash-heavy metal bands. EXODUS is a good example of the best on this CD. Gary Holt and Rick Hunolt the chaos with tight lockstep intonation and harmonization. I think that Steve Souza's vocal treatments work well in part because of his staccato speech. My favorite cut ORAL razor. The rapid somehow held together, including through the exchange of explosive guitar solos. The unabashed aggression of the texts of toxic WALTZ, CAJUN hell and Open Season is worrying, but I am in the middle of the anti-violence Like Father Like Son and the political sensitivities of the last act …, FABULOUS DISASTER, and corruption. New paradigms are legitamized by checking against existing systems. EXODUS proves that speed metal is viable with a wonderful cover of Low Rider (GMS) and overdose (AC / DC). Both songs are not only good, they are with a new personality. If you are interested in aggressive Speed Metal from the late eighties, this CD will interest you.

    One of the best “Trash” Metal records of the 80’s
    When you speak of Thrash metal today, most people remember the bands that made the genere famous. Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, Overkill, and Slayer.

    The Height of Thrash Metal Glory
    While not necessarily their best album, “Fabulous Disaster” found Exodus at their peak as a band and is nonetheless the last great album they would record (until their stunning…
