Containing three unreleased studio tracks and a near-complete live recording from a performance at New York's Studio 54, this release on Relativity's Combat imprint features original Exodus vocalist Paul Baloff in vintage form.
Sounding like a local drunk bellowing from Exodus - The Best Of Exodus - Lessons In Violence end of the bar that nobody wants to visit, Baloff 's between song banter is as unintentionally hilarious as his band's music is frantic. Exodus created some of the first and best thrash-metal on their debut Bonded in Blood, and the band sound tight as they race through seven of the record's cuts during the live Murda Rap - Sunz Of Soul - The Situation of A Lesson in Violence.
The record's highlight has to be Baloff 's barely coherent, knuckle-headed discourse. Among the subjects given the maundering Baloff treatment are lets-give-the-posers-a-beat-down musical xenophobia and similarly high-minded crowd-pleasers like wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper's physical dominance of Hulk Hogan. The first three studio cuts accordingly void of Baloff 's between-song exercise in dumb-metal stereotype reinforcement are songs from the Bonded in Blood follow-up Pleasures of the Fleshbut these alternate mixes feature Baloff who had left the band by the time Pleasures of the Flesh was recorded and released in Baloff 's renditions might interest passionate Exodus fans, but these three openers are basically unremarkable and understandably absent for the band's triumphant debut.
