Sean has been placed on a liver donor transplant list and is currently taking applications for a live liver donor. At this time the Bay Area metal community has come together to help one of their own. Fundraising has begun for Sean and his family.

Slayer release details on new album

Metal icons Slayer have been in the studio finishing their long-awaited new album, which is expected to be released later this year, and will be their first since 2009’s World Painted Blood and their first one with Exodus guitarist Gary Holt as the replacement of the late Jeff Hanneman. About the progress of the album, frontman Tom Araya told Revolver magazine:

“We’re in kind of the beginning stages of the finishing stages, if that makes any sense. We’re doing the mixing and mastering now, but we still need to sit down and figure out the album title, the album cover, the song titles, and the song list. We’ve recorded 13 songs for it; we’ll probably put ten on there, but who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky and we’ll put all 13 on there!”

Araya also revealed that the new album will include one track featuring Hanneman. He explains, “The whole process of this album started three years ago, when Jeff was still a part of it. There is one track on there that we recorded with him, that he did play on, which was completely done except we hadn’t finalized the vocals for it. So we were fortunate to have something that he had participated in.”

Charges dropped against the guy who was jailed for posting Exodus lyrics

Last September, we reported that an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page, and was jailed by Kentucky police for making terroristic threats. He spent more than a week in jail before being released without having the charges dropped.

Well, this time, the charges were dropped against Evans. Represented by the ACLU, Evans through an ACLU attorney stated, “Evans is relieved that these very serious criminal charges have been dismissed, and he is grateful for all of the support he has received during this difficult time. A conviction on first-degree terroristic threatening could have landed Evans in jail for up to 10 years.”

The police and DA’s office have not released a statement, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on the situation come to light.

Exodus released their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.



The guy who was arrested for posting lyrics by a metal band on Facebook speaks

Nearly a week ago, we reported that an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page. About the incident, Evans, who was charged with a Class C felony for “terrorist threatenings” and faced the possibility of between five and ten years in prison, tells the press:

“I couldn’t believe it got that out of hand. At the same time it’s worrisome because I have a family to take care of. I have a three-month-old son.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.



Man arrested for posting lyrics of a metal band on Facebook

We don’t often cover thrash metal bands on Dying Scene, but an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page, and has been charged with making terroristic threats for posting the words to that song, which describe a school shooting to Facebook. About the incident, Exodus wrote:

“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society.

The song was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.
