Video Footage of Exodus at the NAMM Party; Banned from Playing at Disney World
Check out some professionally shot video footage of Exodus’ performance on January 26 at the Schecter Guitar Research NAMM party at The Grove of Anaheim in Aneheim, California. Check it out below.
On another note, I saw an article by Joe Lynch with Fuse.TV regarding Exodus being told they couldn’t play the already scheduled show at Disney World. The following is Joe’s article. Oh, and thanks Joe for keeping the metal world informed! \m/
“There are things Disney likes: Pixar, Selena Gomez, sanitized pop stars singing songs for their movies, princesses and increasing profit margins. But what’s some sh-t that Disney don’t like? Well, for starters, they aren’t too crazy for thrash metal forefathers Exodus.
Disney banned Exodus from playing a scheduled April 12 gig at the House of Blues Orlando—a venue nestled within the plastic fairy tale kingdom of Disney World—as part of their Metal Alliance Tour with Anthrax.
“Because Disney decided Exodus is TOO METAL for them, we will NOT be playing the Lake Buena Vista [House of Blues] show in Florida,” the band explained. “But the fine thrash maniacs in Tampa have invited us to rage at the Orpheum instead. Who’s comin’ out for a Lesson in Violence?”
Is this shocking? Not really. It’s not like you’re ever going to hear Iron Maiden’s “The Number of the Beast” while waiting in line for Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. But this part of their decision is a head-scratcher: Disney will allow Anthrax to play the very same Mickey-sanctioned music venue when the Metal Alliance Tour pulls into Mouse Turf on April 12.
So to recap: A metal band that shares its name with a tool of biological warfare? Totally cool with Mickey. A metal band that shares its name with book in the Bible? That’s a no-go.”
