The Jokes On You is the second album from Venice, CA thrashers Excel. Originally released in 1989, this genre smashing classic has been remastered by Brad Boatright for maximum head shredding. Contains "Tapping Into the Emotional Void" which was the song that the band took legal action against Metallica for ripping off for the main riff on "Enter Sandman." The Jokes On You came out a full two years before Metallica's Black Album. Painstakingly and lovingly put together by the band and Southern Lord this is the ultimate archival release. Available on vinyl for the first time since it's original release complete with the previously unreleased bonus track "Blaze Some Hate." A must for fans of the current wave of crossover: Municipal Waste, Power Trip, Toxic Holocaust as well as old-shook fiends into Suicidal Tendencies, The Accused, and Corrosion of Conformity.
