EXODUS singer Steve “Zetro” Souza was interviewed on a recent installment of HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta’s official podcast, “The Jasta Show”. Speaking about EXODUS’s influence on the early thrash metal scene in the San Francisco Bay Area, Zetro said: “I started [the pre-TESTAMENT outfit] LEGACY, or Eric [Peterson] and Derrick [Ramirez, Eric’s cousin] and myself, we put LEGACY together to emulate what EXODUS was doing. METALLICA came up from Los Angeles to emulate what EXODUS was doing. Regardless of who ended up on top in the end, EXODUS did it first.”
Souza went on to say that he would “love to” one day see EXODUS land the opening slot on a full METALLICA arena tour. “We’re waiting,” he said. “I’m sure one of these days, they’re gonna go, ‘You know what? Fuck it. Let’s bring ’em out and do it.’ That would be great. It would be so much fun.”
