Exodus- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 Complete 4K UHD w/ Schoeps Audio Canon HF G60

Finally, here is the complete Exodus set. I made a mistake with my microphone for the first 40min of the set, so thanks to Ted Mattes, he hooked me up with a Schoeps audio recording and it sounds much better now.
Such a great show and a fun time- like Zetro said, there were so many bands represented that built the bay area thrash scene. I must commend all of us 50-somethings that kept the pit going for the entire show. I saw a couple people take a headfirst dive right over by me, hope everyone got home safely and avoided the hospital. Damn, what a party.

Exodus- 3rd & Castro, Oakland Ca. 3/6/22 4K UHD Live Encores w/Rick Hunolt

Here is the last 20 minutes of the Exodus show yesterday. Why only the last 20min? Well, I wanted to get something up ASAP and the entire show is over 100GB and would have taken days to process. I also screwed up an audio setting for the first 30min of the show so it doesn’t sound as good as this does.
Sorry about the angle- I know that Tom is obstructed by a sidefill- there was no good place to film from(this was a blocked off street- all flat). I needed to be close to the PA for the Rode to sound decent AND avoid being crushed by the pit, so I found the one street sign and posted up against it. It helped in 2 ways- it allowed me to stabilize the camera (I had my monopod in my pocket and camera way the hell up there) and the sign helped shield me a little from flying bodies coming out of the pit. I still get blasted a couple of times, but I didn’t get knocked down. Sorry to all the folks who went full-bore into the street sign. I bet they are hurting today.
It is so cool to see the band having so much fun up there.

Exodus- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento 10/7/21 enhanced DPA Audio Live 4k Thrash

I didn’t think that this one was going to be ready today, but YT flipped it over to 4k right before lunch.
When the sun started to set, the lighting at the dreaded Coors Light stage wasn’t quite enough to keep my camera’s focus from freaking out. It’s not totally awful, but it’s noticeable to me. This video is actually brighter than it was that day- I had to crank up the brightness 65% in adobe premiere to get it to look like this. The audio sounds great- the closer you get to the line array (PA) with the DPAs, the better the result.
My battery conked out at about 30min. I was going to do the battery swap, but it was super packed and if I dropped a battery I would be screwed… so I packed it in and headed over to the Kolas stage for Anthrax.

Exodus- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 9/97 xfer from DAT soundboard master rebalanced thrash

Since Exodus is playing the big outdoor show in Oakland on Sunday, I figured I would put this one up. This show is bizarre- I clearly must have recorded this (the tape # is a few behind Tanya Donnelly, which took place 1-2 months after this), but I have no recollection of this at all. I asked Brian about it and he didn’t know why I chose to bury the recording either. Odd.
It was probably due to the fact that Paul Baloff could not perform because he was sick, and Rick chose not to perform as well… but it is still a lot of fun to hear Gary play these songs with a drummer and guest vocals (he might be singing as well). Some cool covers toward the end.
Oh, please ignore the sped up audio at the end. I forgot to trim the Melvins stuff that I recorded at 32khz. If you were ever curious, that is what a DAT sounds like when transferred at the wrong sampling rate!

Exodus- Jones Hall, Roseville Ca. 5/3/86 xfer from master audio cassette

This was a memorable show. Anthrax cancelled and Exodus played an extra-long set as the headliner, which was awesome! When they played these long sets in early 86, they sometimes whip out some of the pre-LP stuff (like Hell’s Breath). I was managing one of the opening bands at the time- Rigor Mortis. Matt Polish went up and started to taunt the audience, and I remember a huge wave of people running up to the stage wanting a piece of Matt.
