EXODUS: “Blood In Blood Out” Video AvailableMonday, 27th October 2014
Bay Area thrash titans EXODUS have released the video for “Blood In Blood Out,” the title track from their new album.
The clip was directed by Shan Dan Horan of the Shadow Born Group (BUCKCHERRY, CARNIFEX, WINDS OF PLAGUE) and it features hundreds of dedicated Bay Area fans that came out in droves to perform as extras in the video after a wide casting call.
“‘Blood In Blood Out’ was exactly the kind of video we wanted and needed to make… unbridled energy, violence, blood and our Bay Area friends and family at the center of attention! Just as they should be,” states EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt.
“I hate making videos and this one was so much fun, I actually caught myself saying things I never would say before! ‘Let’s run through it again!'”
EXODUS vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza adds: “Typical and sheer violence, straight-up aggressive and in your fucking face!
“Watching this video kind of reminds me of ‘Fight Club’, but awesome action and awesome violence, perfect for the title track of the new EXODUS album, ‘Blood In Blood Out’!”
Says director Shan Dan Horan: “Directing this music video has been a pleasure. Having the task to find hundreds of metal heads to fill up a dark room with very limited time seemed like a tough task. What I found, however, was an overwhelming response from some of the most positive and energetic fans I’ve ever met. I feel honored to have played a small role in that. Old metalheads, young ones, to even a guy that showed up in his wheelchair. The fact of the matter is everyone was accepted and everyone picked up their brethren when they would fall in the pit. To me that’s what ‘Blood In Blood Out’ is about. While we all come from different backgrounds — once a metalhead, always a metalhead. That’s something that stays in your blood.”
