Exodus was founded by Tom Hunting and Kirk Hammett (later departed to Metallica, having written only some material for the debut album). The band did not release any Hammett-era albums, just one demo (1982).
Tom Hunting also did vocals in the very beginning. The first lineup was Hammett/Hunting/Andrews, with Holt joining soon after, and then Baloff.
Steve "Zetro" Souza had left the band after about six years with them (1986 - '92) due to lack of commitment. He came back in '02, but in september '04, just before the south american tour, Zetro was kicked out of the band, again due to lack of commitment (Matt Harvey (Exhumed) did guest vocals on the rest of the '04 South American tour).
Interestingly, Les Claypool of Blind Illusion and Primus, who was a schoolmate and friend of Kirk Hammett's, was asked to join the band as a bass player in 1980, but declined, citing a taste for free-form jazz at the time.
