Steve "Zetro" Souza Can't Get Exodus Out of His Blood

If there's anything that three decades spent in the wild and wooly world of heavy fucking metal has taught Exodus singer Steve "Zetro" Souza, it's to never say never. After being not-so-amicably dismissed from the band for the second time back in 2004, it looked for all the world as if the thrash-metal progenitors were charting a new course away from the man who sang "Toxic Waltz."

As recently as last year, odds didn't look good that Souza would ever get a crack at the big stage at House of Blues in Houston.

"I probably wouldn't have put any money on it," the singer says.
