Deemed one of metal’s most important heritage bands for the lasting – and ongoing – contributions they’ve made to the creation and sustenance of the thrash metal genre, Bay Area thrashers EXODUS teamed up once again with SchneppZone video director Jon Schnepp of Metalocalypse fame for a visually pummeling video… so pummeling, in fact, that you can hurt yourself!

“Downfall” is now available for viewing on Nuclear Blast Europe’s YouTube channel, the EXODUS YouTube Channel, and the band’s MySpace page. The track comes off the band’s Billboard Top 200 charting album, Exhibit B: The Human Condition. The video was shot on April 1st on the old set of the television sitcom Night Court and features animated sequences by Los Angeles-based traditional animator Jeremy Polgar.
About getting to work with EXODUS again, Schnepp stated: “I think their music is incredible and they always give me 100% at the video shoot. Working with these legends of thrash metal again has been a blast!”
EXODUS’ ninth studio album, Exhibit B: The Human Condition, hit #1 on the CMJ Loud Rock radio chart and sold over 4,600 copies in the U.S. the week of its release according to Nielsen SoundScan. Exhibit B debuted at #114 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, #43 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart, #19 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart, and #12 on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart. The album also debuted at #19 on the Neilsen SoundScan LOUD Chart in Canada.
Before EXODUS launch their headlining “March Of Brutality” tour of North America with Malevolent Creation, Holy Grail, and Bonded By Blood, they’ll make a special one-off appearance at the Ozzfest kick-off show in San Bernardino, California on Saturday, August 14th.
