So finally an Exodus II with an actual cover. There are a few tapes out there by Exodus II with no cover and no details about who they are. I’m still not sure if the band’s name a reference to the second chapter of Exodus, or a reference to the need for another Exodus, or simply the second version of a band that was just called Exodus. The sound here rides the line between hard rock and metal. Either the band couldn’t make up their mind which direction they wanted to go, or different band members were allowed to bring in different influences to the sound.
