Zero To Hero Films has uploaded a three-part video report on “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance“, a special concert which marked the 10-year anniversary of former EXODUS singer Paul Baloff‘s passing. The event took place February 4 at the Oakland Metro Operahouse in Oakland, California and featured performances by EXODUS, POSSESSED, FORBIDDEN and HEATHEN, among others. Included are interviews with such musicians as Chris Kontos and Kevin Reed (ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT), Tony Campos (POSSESSED, ASESINO, STATIC-X, MINISTRY, PRONG), Harald O. (D.R.I.), Rob Dukes (EXODUS) and Craig Locicero (FORBIDDEN), as well as footage of the actual performances.
As previously reported, METALLICA/ex-EXODUS guitarist Kirk Hammett, former EXODUS axeman Rick Hunolt and original EXODUS bassist Jeff Andrews all joined the current lineup of EXODUS on stage at “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance“.
It was a decade ago — on January 31, 2002 — that Paul Baloff suffered a major stroke and was brought to Highland General Hospital in Northern California, where he remained in a coma until he was declared brain dead. On February 2, 2002, his doctors shut off his life support, leaving him to die in his sleep. He had no previous known health problems, and the stroke was a complete surprise to everyone around him.
“Let There Be Blood“, the controversial re-recording of EXODUS‘ classic 1985 debut album, “Bonded by Blood“, was issued in October 2008 through Zaentz Records.
