Today marks the 12th anniversary of the passing of original Exodus vocalist Paul Baloff. He went into a coma after suffering a stroke, and died at the age of 41. His presence is missed in the world of thrash metal, but if there’s an afterlife, I know he’s there now, kicking the shit out of poseurs and having a great time. Another Lesson in Violence was the last thing the band recorded with Baloff, and it is so, so good.
Be sure to check in tomorrow for another volume of Mixtape Monday. Until then, stay heavy, friends.
