Product Description

2008 release produced by Gary Holt and mixed by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Killswitch, Engage) it also features the bonus track 'Hells Breathe' a never before recorded classic from back in the day. Exodus are the undeniable forefathers of Thrash Metal. They gained huge notoriety in the international underground scene as a result of the tape trading community in the early 80's. The immortal, must-have, thrash classic 'Bonded By Blood' was released in 1985 via Torrid Records and inspired the likes of Testament, Death Angel, Vio-lence as well as many others. 'Bonded By Blood' is inspiring a whole new breed of Thrash Metal.

I guess there are 2 ways to see an album that is perceived as a classic among fans & peers alike. First from the fans who likes a certain album just the way it is & accept it with its flaws as that specific album reminds them of a special time in their life to which they go back to everytime they listen to that album. Having spending years listening to that album (espacially through hard times I would assume) they can't imagine listening to their favorite songs in any other shape or form. To have those precious songs re-recorded, even though it's by the same band, is just blasphemy to them no matter how bad & weak the sounds of the original album is.

Then there's the band way to see their own classic albums. As song writers, musicians tend to see their songs as never good enough; That they could improve it is some shape or form. As guitar player Lee Altus once said: "You never think that the song is good enough, you just make amend with it."

That's what is happening with Let There Be Blood, which is Bonded By Blood re-recorded. While a lot of fans screamed in outrage to this recording. Guitar player Gary Holt was never satisfied with the original recording saying that the sound on Bonded By Blood is outdated & weak. However, Let There Be Blood was not made to replace Bonded By Blood. Still according to Gary Holt, he wanted to hear the album with state of the art sound & give it more crunch & power & also sees it as a great tribute to the band's original singer, the late Paul Baloff.

I'm not saying that all re-recorded albums are good (Blizzard Of Ozz & Diary Of A Madman anyone?), but as far as Let There Be Blood is concerned... It absolutly rocks!!!

Well done. I've heard others who disagree with the re recording of this classic, however I'm not one of them. It's great to hear original material done to today's production standards. Remasters don't work as the original material was badly produced at the beginning despite the high artistry of the original material.
This is a great companion CD to The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A. Looking forward to seeing Exodus on tour this spring and Gary Holt play these classic Metal riffs. Exodus have managed to hang onto the Metal attitude despite many difficulties without morphing into religious fanatics. It's pure unadulterated Metal. Exodus delivers.

This re-record is better than the original. Don't listen to what people say. Check out Manowar's re-record of Battle Hymmns as well!

The singer can be annoying but it's good thrash metal.

Killer Re-Do!!!! Feb. 11 2009
By Eric Mulero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is no doubt that BBB was one of the most influential metal albums of all time!!! It had every element you can ask for in a metal album, fast cranked out thrashers like Strike Of The Beast and the slow heavy churners with a cool build up as And Then There Were None!!!! Killer solos in every song and a punishing vocalist who gave everything he had in his performances. Let us not forget the unrelenting drums that carried every song from start to finish!!!

Come 2008 and we have this piece of metal history restored with todays technology and a killer new vocalist!!!! LTBB is everything you could ask for and more. Exodus nailed it!!!!

Brutal update on these unbeatable classics. If there was any possible way to make these Exodus songs any better this is it, the new singer does a great job too. Awesome job!

classic thrash metal Jan. 19 2009
By c-mo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
exodus were my fav of the big 5,slayer,megadeath anthrax,metallica.they had everything the other 4 had and more,they had the agression and harsh vocals of slayer,melodies and technique of megadeath,groove of metallica(quicker though).and fun party atmosphere but kick you in the face riffs of scott not ian and anthrax.the guitar work between holt and hunolt(though may be different on this disc)is metal shredding at it`s best,and the riffs are super catchy while crushing your ears.i reccomend this disc and the first 4 albums of each of the big 5.

Think of it as a Bonded by Blood tribute album by a great cover band. Oct. 28 2008
By Xavier I. Ucar Conte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just to let you know, if you haven't listened to the original Bonded by Blood, then you're in the wrong page. There's no way anyone (including Exodus itself) can do justice remaking an album that has 20 years of being perfect. Bonded by blood is still to this date in the top 5 best thrash metal albums of all time. Bonded by blood IS that important! Just like Master of Puppets, Peace sells, Among the Living, Reign in Blood, It's a landmark, just impossible to top, not even for exodus.

So, if you came with the idea that this album was going to be better than the original, well brother, then you'are simply not a fan. It just can't be done.

The remake is good fun, I could almost say that it's great fun. But it just does'nt feel like exodus. Instead, it feels like a great tribute by a talented cover band. And by saying this I mean that if Exodus would have had recorded Bonded by blood today, and sounded just like Let there be blood , then this record will be of no significance in metal at all. Why? Well is not innovative, crucial or a landmark in metal when the extreme bands of today play at a 1000 mph with a clinical precision ( see Arsis, Krisium, Nile etc.)

The songs are the same. Same structure and everything. The record feels strong. The production is great, and I was surprised in how good the new singer's vocals fit into this 23 year old baby. The band did a great job. Most important, you can still taste the oldschool in this record which is a great thing.

I have to say that I liked it. I will be have lotz of fun listening to this record. But to be honest, the original Bonded by Blood will pop out of my speakers way more frequently than this album will ever do. With that said, and even though I like this new record, there's some things in life that cannot be replaced... and Bonded by blood is one of them.

If you own the original... DO GET THIS!!! THIS IS A GOOD REMAKE!!!
If you don't, then again, you're in the wrong page.

I saw Exodus a couple of nights ago, opening up for Slayer, and they played three songs from this album. Exodus has many albums, some great, some average, and a couple I don't talk about, but Let There Be Blood belongs in the top grouping. Check out their new work, Exhibit B: The Human Condition, it is killer.
