Persona Non Grata, the 1st album from bay area legends Exodus in seven years, is set to drop in less than a month. The legendary thrashers have just dropped the third single, 'The Years of Death And Dying', along with it's lyric video which can be streamed below.
Tom Hunting states: "'The Years of Death and Dying' started out as a poem, from the perspective of Death being a thinking entity, always watching and looking for weakness and opportunity to come calling for people — a grim reaper story" .
"We were losing legends: Bowie, Cash, Petty, Prince, Frey…the list goes on and on," he continued, "Then we started losing family members and friends in our own orbit. Anyway, the title came first, then the poem, which became a song. I shared the lyrics with Gary, who helped inspire me with phrasing to finish it, and the guys loved it. The song is really long, and more legends kept passing right up into the moments Zet was singing it, so I had to keep writing until I had enough to complete the song. We hope you enjoy our tribute to the fallen!"
