“I Was A Miserable Person”

On June 6, Holland’s FaceCulture conducted an interview with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza of veteran San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS.

On his departure from EXODUS in 2004 and his return to the band ten years later:

“Last time [in 2005] was the worst time — the whole period there. I wasn’t comfortable. I pretty much did it because [late EXODUS singer] Paul [Baloff] had died. They were originally do it with Paul. And I had a young family at the time, and I had things going on, and I wasn’t mentally ready to come jump back into this again. And so I took it very bitterly every time I was out [on tour]. I probably wasn’t the nicest guy to be around, and things like that. It’s different this time for me now — mentally, physically, musically… the whole ten yards.”

On what he has discovered about himself in the ten years that he was away from EXODUS that helped him become a better person:

“Well, the problem started with me, basically. I was a miserable person. And when you’re a miserable person in a band, it makes it hard for the other four people that are there, plus the crew and the management and everybody, so I had a lot to do with being the element [that was] a pain the ass. I was demanding. So I changed a lot about myself. I started with myself, and then, from there on, became a better person through that. So I’m sure if you were to interview the [other guys in the band], and ask them, ‘How is [Zetro] now compared to before?’ They’d be, like, ‘[It’s like the difference between] night and day. He’s so much fun now to be around and happy and in a good mood and ready to do this.’ [Whereas before] I was, like, ‘Just pay me and I’ll do it.’ [And] that’s really not the drive at all anymore.”
