EXODUS Pulls Out Of MARYLAND DEATHFEST Due To A ‘Variety Of Personal Issues’

Due to a “variety of personal issues and matters with one of the members,” San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal veterans EXODUS will not perform at Maryland Deathfest XI, set to take place May 23-26 in Baltimore. Replacing them on the bill are Arizona thrashers SACRED REICH.

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has spent the last two years filling in for SLAYER founding axeman Jeff Hanneman who in January 2011 contracted necrotizing fasciitis, likely caused by a spider bite, and has been undergoing surgeries, skin grafts and intense rehab since.

EXODUS‘ latest album, “Exhibit B: The Human Condition”, was released in North America on May 18, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The CD sold around 4,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 114 on The Billboard 200 chart.

EXODUS‘ previous album, “The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A”, opened with 3,600 units back in October 2007.
