The San Francisco Bay Area has a rich history of metal music, and Steve “Zetro” Souza has played a major role in it. Before joining Exodus as their singer in 1986, Zetro fronted the band Legacy, who shortly after changed its name to Testament. And in between his stints in Exodus, Zetro continued to live and breathe thrash metal through other projects like the Dublin Death Patrol, Hatriot and Tenet (as well as helped co-write a few songs on Testament’s last two records). Metal Insider recently spoke with Zetro about returning to Exodus for a second time (interview coming soon). During our chat, though, we also asked the singer to share his five favorite albums to come out of the Bay Area metal scene. Check out which records made his list by clicking on the page numbers below.
