Exodus - 1987 - Pleasures of the flesh

Post by The ripper on Sun 3 Jan - 15:15












Released 7 october 1987

Exodus’ second album featured more top shelf thrash guitar heroics from team Holt and Hunolt.  
The band sounds razor-sharp behind new singer Steve “Zetro” Souza.  
But with the loss of original vocalist Paul Baloff, Exodus also lost the charm that made their debut so irresistible.  
Technically speaking, Baloff was terrible on Bonded By Blood, but his obnoxious attitude and lust for metal bled through the speakers.  
Though Souza sounded appropriately fierce for a thrash vocalist, it’s hard not to miss Baloff here.  
That special something seems to be missing, and Exodus’ Pleasures Of The Flesh becomes just another solid thrash album, but not a great album.  
Pleasures Of The Flesh lacks the spirit of brotherhood that made Bonded By Blood a thrash “classic”.  
But I still like this band better than Slayer or Testament.  
The original cover was supposed to be this, but it was changed at the last-minute to the one you see above.
