Legendary thrash metal band Exodus have unveiled the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, "Blood In, Blood Out," which hits retail and digital stores on October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including Exodus’ "Let There Be Blood."

The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains, “The concept came from Par Olofsson – I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”

"Blood In, Blood Out" is Exodus’ 10th studio album, and marks the band’s first release with new vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s "Tempo of the Damned." It was also just announced via Rolling Stone that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett churned out a special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album. More details are set to be released soon, including release dates, track listing information, pre-order specifics, and more.

To celebrate the imminent release of "Blood In, Blood Out," the band will be busy touring this fall – with a full South American tour leading into a supporting run with fellow metal titans Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies on the Scion-sponsored fall leg of their United States onslaught. The tour begins on November 12th in Oakland, CA at The Fox Theater and will tour throughout the states, coming to close in Detroit, MI at The Fillmore on December 5th. More information on the tour can be found at this location.

I wouldn't be surprised if they've had the music written for a little while. Possibly the lyrics too. Agreed though, it does seem a little quick.
