Blood In, Blood Out not only mark's Exodus' tenth studio album to date, but also the return of legendary vocalist Steve "Zetro" Souza, who hasn't appeared on one of the group's albums since 2004's Tempo Of The Damned. The thrash metal monsters have a BIG album in store, one that even features a special guitar solo from Metallica's Kirk Hammett, and it's no wonder than that they've got Souza back to help lead the charge. In true rock and roll fashion, Souza humoured us and dropped some amazing answers in this no-holds-barred interview.

Most public place I have ever projectile vomited?
Souza: Just recently at the Bang Your Head festival in Germany; it was my first show back with Exodus and I projectile vomited all over Davey Vain from Vain.

Weirdest place I've ever taken a shit?
Souza: In the parking lot in the Raider game. I had to go so bad I opened up 2 car doors and just let it fly.


Ever intentionally spit on fans?
Souza: I intentionally spat on fans my very first gig ever, in my very first band with Phil Demmel, we were called Metal Warrior, I couldn't sing that well, so at least I could spit on the crowd.

Grossest chick you’ve ever hooked up with?
Souza: Grossest chick I ever hooked up with was on Pleasures of the Flesh Tour; she was let's just say a whole Lotta Rosie.

Most times you've had sex in "one sitting"?
Souza: I went for 6 1/2 hours once.


Do you bathe on tour? Is it regular? Do you take what you can get and do a wet-nap wipe if there’s no shower?
Souza: I have to bathe every day even if I have to go rent a place to go take a shower. I must be clean heavy metal or not I am clean.

If someone stole all your band’s gear, then you caught the dickwad and no one would ever know what happened next, what would you do to him?
Souza: If someone stole the gear and I got to do something with them I would torture them for a full day first and all kinds of different sick ways. I'm sure Gary Holt could think of some killer sick ways to torture someone too!

What scares the absolute shit out of you?
Souza: The only thing that really scares the shit out of me are heights, I do not like heights I don't like climbing up high places that are looking over buildings.


What is your stance on the legalization of marijuana?
Souza: My stance on legalization of marijuana since I've been a chronic smoker since 1976 and I still am, legalize it let the government tax it whatever they have to do I'm for it.

Describe your wildest drug experience.
Souza: My weirdest drug experience - for all who do not know that is how I got my name Zetro; I was on an acid trip and didn't say anything for about six hours and then I just kept starting blurting out the Word Zet over and over and over and over again. By the time I got to school on Monday, everybody was calling me Zet , Zet , hey what's up Zet , and there you have it the beginning of a nickname.
