“After 10 years since his departure, he admitted it hasn’t been easy for the veteran to appreciate what he’s able to embrace today. He speaks with genuine humility and gratitude, very cautious not to give too much away, when talking about his departure and unexpected return. ‘Life happened. I just wasn’t ‘there’ when I was with the band. Everyone just kind of put up with me, like that uncle that pissed everyone off at Christmas.’ He laughs, but adds, ‘It’s taken me this long to be able to do this at this time and to realize that having this life is awarded to you. I can appreciate it now more than I’ve ever been able to. The music is great, but you have to know what you’re doing and be smart and know the business, too…”

I loved “Bonded By Blood.” Exodus, whoever was on the mic, is a consummate thrash band, so I looked forward to meeting Zetro. He was so excited to be back, to have a chance to play with his ol’ mate Kirk Hammett, and the new release that it wasn’t so much an interview as it was listening to a little kid open his birthday presents. Tons of fun and kinda cute! A really brutal release from good band and a sweet guy. One of my faves from 2014.
