It's time for another fabulous disaster from Exodus. The almighty thrash-metal OGs are returning later this fall with their 11th studio album and first in seven years, Persona Non Grata. The follow-up to 2014's Blood In, Blood Out, arrives in full on November 19th, but today (August 20th) they're giving us a preview with a bloodcurdling new ripper called "The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves)."
As suggested by the album's title, which translates to people who are "unwelcome" or "unacceptable," Exodus are wading into the society's greasy underbelly for this opus and dredging up as much anger as they can muster.
The record's artwork depicts a grisly scene of decrepit bodies piling upon a pool of blood while ghoulish riot cops batter corpses in the background. "The Beatings Will Continue" basically sounds like that image in song form, and you can crank it above via YouTube.
Persona Non Grata is due out November 19th via Nuclear Blast and is now available for pre-order. Check out the badass artwork and track listing below.
