Die San Francisco Bay Area Thrash-Großmeister EXODUS haben soeben “Persona Non Grata“, ihr elftes Studioalbum veröffentlicht und schicken ein Lyrcvideo für den her untypischen Song ‘Prescribing Horror‘

Gary Holt erklärt zu dem von ihm geschriebenen Track:

„As we have finally come to the day of Persona Non Grata’s release, something we’ve been eagerly awaiting for what seems like an eternity. We are pleased to share one last lyric video with you, my personal favorite song on the album, ‘Prescribing Horror’. A little tale of motherhood and a drug, and what happens when greed comes before life and safety. The story of Thalidomide.”



Discarded, deformed

babies of the chemical age

Mutated, some unborn

dying in their fetal cage

On the day of the nativity in ‘56

comes a child forsaken

The first of a hundred thousand,

cursed by a drug they’d taken



Condemned to a life unkind

as they suffered in silence

The Hell of Thalidomide

all in the name of science

A mother’s ruin

all for another’s greed

Prescribing horror and sorrow when they breed


Miscarriage, disparage

live a life of anguish

Midwives were taking lives

so the child it would not languish

Suffocating newborn daughters and sons

for their malformations

Given toxic poison

that twisted a generation


Repeat chorus


First created in the past

as an antidote for Sarin gas

Created in camps of death

what price a pound of flesh?

Limbless, eyeless

all organs displaced

They made money hand over fist

by selling this toxic waste


Repeat chorus
