Thrash Metal Band Exodus Banned From House of Blues Anaheim
|Gary Holt of Exodus|
Northern California thrash metal band Exodus now finds itself among a list of several other heavy metal bands being banned by Disney, including DAATH, Snot, The Faceless and Gallows.
Gary Holt, original member/guitarist of the this band of Bay Area thrash titans took a few moments before the sold out show at the House of Blues Hollywood to explain what it's like to live through three decades of thrash metal, why the Disney ban is ridiculous, and what bands would make his Big Five list.

"I think maybe they're more afraid of the audience more than anything, I don't know," Holt said. "Yeah we do have a lot of violent songs but also our songs, but a lot of our songs have a good message if you listen to the lyrics. I think they're afraid of the wall of death."
