  • Steve "Zetro" Souza replaced Paul Baloff after the band's first album, Bonded By Blood (1985). Souza was previously the lead singer of the Bay Area thrash metal band Legacy, who are now known as Testament.
  • Exodus was Kirk Hammett's band before he replaced Dave Mustaine in Metallica in 1983. Kirk never appeared on any of Exodus' studio albums, but he contributed a solo to "Salt The Wound," which appears on the band's 2014 album, Blood In, Blood Out."
  • Although guitarist Gary Holt did not join Exodus until very shortly after their formation in 1980, he is the only member to have performed on all of the band's studio albums. >>

  • In addition to being a rocker, Souza has been a member of the Carpenter's Union in California for over two decades. He explained his duties in a Songfacts interview: "I am a commercial door installer. So when you walk into, say, a movie theater or into a bathroom somewhere and you open the door and you grab the handle and the door closes, I put all that type of hardware in commercial buildings. I'll do hospitals, schools. Right now I'm at a huge job at Stanford, the college. There's a credit union going in the middle of it. It's a really, really detailed job. A lot of detailed different hardware, a lot of electric hardware on the doors. So very intricate stuff."
