The American thrash metal legends in Exodus announced they have parted company with vocalist Rob Dukes, who recorded three albums with the veterans since joining in 2005, following the band's bitter second split with Souza. A statement from Exodus guitarist Gary Holt reads as follows:

"As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!"

Souza added: "I spent a great part of my life with Exodus, that blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I’m very excited!"

Since leaving Exodus in 2005, Steve Souza has kept busy with such projects as Dublin Death Patrol and Hatriot. Exodus are currently working on their eleventh studio album, which will be the sixth to feature the returning vocalist.

Lets just hope it lasts long enough to get through the recording so that we get at least one last full length album with Zetro. don't get me wrong, The Human Condition was awesome, and bonded by blood will always be a classic......but to me Zetro will always be the voie of Exodus.

I just hope they keep the same style. Those longer songs were really doing it for me, the Atrocity albums were fantastic,

Steve sang on some good albums, but Rob is still my favorite. Not as joyous about this as some others. I wonder what Exodus' set lists will look like now.

I'll miss Dukes. The last several Exodus albums with him as vocalist have been the heaviest stuff that Exodus has ever released. With great vocals and lyrics written by Nukes. Zetro has already bailed twice,and I hope Holt doesn't allow him to write lyrics for the upcoming album. Step back for Exodus in my opinion.
