Exodus Premiere New Single “The Years Of Death And Dying”


A third single from pioneering thrash metal band Exodus went up online today, October 15th. That song is titled “The Years Of Death And Dying” and is taken from the band’s approaching eleventh studio album “Persona Non Grata“, which Nuclear Blast have lined up for a November 19th release date. You can find a lyric video for it below, while the band’s drummer Tom Hunting had the following to say of the song:

“‘The Years Of Death And Dying‘ started out as a poem, from the perspective of Death, being a thinking entity, always watching and looking for weakness and opportunity to come calling for people. A Grim Reaper story. We were losing legends: Bowie, Cash, Petty, Prince, Frey…the list goes on and on. Then we started losing family members and friends in our own orbit.

Anyway, the title came first, then the poem, which became a song. I shared the lyrics with Gary, who helped inspire me with phrasing to finish it, and the guys loved it. The song is really long, and more legends kept passing right up into the moments Zet was singing it, so I had to keep writing until I had enough to complete the song. We hope you enjoy our tribute to the fallen!”
