    Exhibit B: The Human Condition, the ninth studio album from Bay Area thrash progenitors EXODUS, has sold over 4,600 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan and has debuted at #114 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, #112 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart, #12 on the Top/Current Hard Music Albums charts, and ranks #3 in the Current Hard Music Albums chart at Core Stores.



    States guitarist/songwriter Gary Holt: "Just woke up at the insane hour of 6 a.m. to find that we have actually entered the Billboard charts at 114! Very cool to be back! Nice jump in sales; it shows that thrash is alive and well indeed! Now to get this show on the road! Announcement coming soon!"
    Hey, release tracks from Bonded By Blood. AND NOT THE RE-RECORDED ONES THE ORIGINAL 80'S THRASH

    My heart would rip itself out of my chest and shred a storm if we were to get some Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, or Blind Guardian. :D

    Awesome stuff so far. The Dimmu song in testing is awesome too. I hope to see "Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse" come (maybe after RBN has keyboard support) eventually as that was the first "extreme metal" song I heard and it's been a favorite of mine since I first heard it back in 2004 :)
    WHAT:eek:

    What song!?

    Yeah, don't want to get all "please bring band x", but some Soilwork and Raunchy would be pretty awesome. :) Even if it is just "Watch Out" that would be great.

    This I can get behind. There's so much awesome to choose from on Nuclear Blast, the more the merrier :D

    Did not realize Epica was on Nuclear Blast, or just how many awesome bands are on that label. Must hope that they keep putting stuff on RBN, then!

    EDIT: Must learn to read original post. Looking forward to seeing what other tracks you are planning on bringing to RBN! Everything so far has been great, and you can bet I'll be keeping a close eye on what else you plan on bringing. I know I'd personally prefer Epica more than anything else (Unleashed!), but really I'm just glad to see so much awesome music coming from Nuclear Blast. :)

    Well I just really want to know what albums Nuclear Blast has to offer. I mean if the OP is an actual representative of the label then why not request it straight to him. Or is it annoying :/

    My thirst for DLC from Amorphis burns like a thousand suns. Enigma, Sky is Mine, Far from the Sun...oh, man.

    Note that I'm a PS3 user, so quenching that thirst would require an additional step.

    Also into Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Hammerfall, and In Flames, but Amorphis tops my list of NB bands.

    Hot on the heels of a busy and productive 2009, DEATH ANGEL have been holed up in their Oakland, California studio for the past few months writing songs for their next Nuclear Blast release. The band are currently at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with production genius Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ALL THAT REMAINS, WHITE CHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER) tracking the new record, tentatively scheduled for a September of 2010 release.
