‘Thirty Years After The First Record, We Are Still Relevant’

Rock Revolt Magazine recently conducted an interview with EXODUS singer Steve “Zetro” Souza. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Rock Revolt Magazine: When I was first approaching this interview, I was going to gear it towards a “wrap-up” of the past year since “Blood In Blood Out” was released. However, a quick check of EXODUS tour dates has you guys going string well into March of 2016. That really speaks to the demand for you being back in the band and the strength of the album as well. What are your thoughts on that?

Zetro: I think both elements are definitely a factor to it. I don’t want to say it doesn’t have anything to do with me coming back, [but] sure, it does. “The original guy, the guy that sang for them when I was in high school.” That’s the mentality. Our fans are very loyal to that. When bands replace the singer, there’s big dynamic there that you’re used to. Does Arnel Pineda [current JOURNEY vocalist] do a great job in JOURNEY? Sure he does. But, how awesome would it be if Steve Perry came back, though? I look at it that way. When Blaze Bayley was singing in IRON MAIDEN — that’s probably some of the heaviest stuff MAIDEN‘s done. But Bruce [Dickinson] is MAIDEN. Same with [Rob] Halford — I love “RipperOwens; Tim is my boy. But, when Halford came back to PRIEST, what was it like? It’s the same thing — I hear it night after night. People scream, “Thanks for coming back, Steve!” That makes me feel great. It makes me feel appreciated, and gives me motivation, knowing that we’re still relevant in the business. Thirty years after the first record, we are still relevant.
