With a bond forged in youth and decades-old friendship, the undisputed masters of thrash metal EXODUS released their eleventh studio album, PERSONA NON GRATA, last fall via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, they bring the heat with the music video for “The Fires Of Division“.
Gary Holt states, “Time for our next video. This one is for “The Fires of Division” and it actually has the band in it! This video was super fun to make, as it was the first time the band had gathered together in some time! And it’s also pre-order kick-off day for our new picture disc, limited to 2800 units worldwide, and our yellow-tinted cassette limited to 300! SICK!”
EXODUS is also launching pre-orders for TWO new exclusive Persona Non Grata products. The first is a picture LP which will be available in U.S. and Europe. The Picture Disc will be limited to 2,800 pieces worldwide. The second product is a yellow tinted cassette that will only be available in the U.S. and is limited to 300 pieces.

Literally translating to an “unwelcome” or “unacceptable” person, PERSONA NON GRATA touches on themes of modern societal disgust and degradation. The band gathered at Tom Hunting’s house in the mountains where they produced and recorded Persona Non Grata from three home-built studios . Steve Lagudi was at the helm of engineering while the band enlisted Andy Sneap of Backstage Studios to mix the album. For the third time in the band’s history, they returned to Swedish artist Par Olofsson to create the album artwork.
