I find it amusing how the people praising the new albums by these respective thrash bands either a) haven't heard the old stuff, and b) don't like the old stuff for whatever reasons. Kind of like Metallica.

Though I don't think the song you posted is that bad, Div.

from what I've listened to, it's unspeakably bad. I stopped after "Nanking."
Maybe I'll listen to the six remaining songs another time, but these seven songs suck so much I don't know if I'll feel motivated to do so...

Don't get me wrong, the riffs are there (the same ones from Exhibit A, natch ), but the songs are not. The only song I can actually remember is "Hammer and Life" (the link Div posted), which isn't even that good.

I kinda liked it. Its way to long though, they should have left a few of the songs off the album (Democide, Beyond the pale, and the sun is my destroyer) and used them for the next album. After Burn Hollywood Burn I found myself getting really tired of the album. I do like this one more then the last 2 though. My favorite tracks are Hammer and life, Class Dismissed, DownFall, March of the Sychphants, and Burn Hollywood Burn.

Class Dismissed does have an awesome riff. If only it had some sort of hook so I could remember it...

I really think the album kicks ass. The only songs I don't care for are Beyond The Pale, The Sun Is My Destroyer (wasted Peter Tägtgren cameo ), and Democide. The rest is great IMO.

I don't really think that's the case.

Death Magnetic - love old Metallica, love it
World Painted Blood - love old Slayer, hate it
Endgame - love old Megadeth, hated UA, love it
Ironbound - have come to love old Overkill, love it
Hordes of Chaos - enjoy old Kreator, love it
The Formation of Damnation - like old Testament, not crazy about it

Other examples may exist. You're confusing me with your blanket statements that apply to no one and nothing.

My turn!

Death Magnetic - Used to love old Metallica, I guess I still do to a degree, but I'm so sick of them. St Anger was awful, to say the least, but I quite enjoyed Death Magnetic! I was not interested in it at all, but my dad bought it for me cause he liked it so much and I gave it a chance, and have to say I enjoy it.

World Painted Blood - Love old Slayer, this one (while I don't own it yet) from what I have heard is better than their last few, possibly the best one since Divine Intervention, which I adore.

Endgame - I think this one is great, love it! I'm a huge Megadeth fan though, love everything they have done so far, well not Risk, and not Dave's religion.

Ironbound - I can't say enough good things about this album. It's their best since Underground, and I love old Overkill!!!!!!!!!! Oh yes, I do!

Hordes of Chaos - A good effort, a little trendy/hot topic sounding at times, and it has it's weak moments, but still solid, wouldnt go out of my way to complain about it, but can't really praise it either. It has a few really good tracks though, overall reminds me of more recent Slayer, which I think Kreator should do better, always thought they were better than Slayer, the German Slayer! I guess I just expect more out of them.

The Formation of Damnation - I love this record! And I'm a fan of old Testament, my favorite being The New Order.

Edit: Almost forgot about the topic at hand! The new Exodus, I have sorta given up on Exodus and don't really care about them anymore, but from what I heard it does not sound bad, actually a lot better than I was expecting.

To damn long, most of the songs sounded dragged out. If it had shorter songs, it would have pretty good.
