I feel like Exodus have gone way up in popularity over the last couple of years. Their insanely heavy touring and Gary Holt noticeably being the cause of Slayer's recent live awesomeness has definitely helped them out.
It's been interesting living in the bay for the recent Exodus popularity boost. Before Gary Holt used to just chill and talk to everyone and would just hang around. Now it's like all the older folks from that scene have appeared out of nowhere and have started hanging with the old thrash dudes all over again. Now if you go to an Exodus show in the bay, everyone in the band has got a whole posse hanging around them.
