Exodus was formed in 06/1988 by Cult.
In 02/1989, Warewolf (NATO) joined in, followed by Stormbringer, Jimmy Z and Gazoo (all former Mayhem) in 04/1989. This is when the golden age of Exodus started. Exodus went exclusive with Illusion, NATO, Genesis Project, Crazy and Censor Design. Executionner (Reign of Terror) joined in Oct/1989 as he was disappointed that Gene/Illusion gave the first real first-release to EXS instead of ROT.
Exodus lost Illusion as trading partner to A Touch of Class mainly due to a war between Gene and Exodus.
In 02/1990 Grim Reaper (former The Syndicate, North East Crackers) and Warez King (ex-Fantasy, Sysop of Warez Castle) joined in, while Flyboy (Sysop of Fabulous Disaster) was kicked out and joined Fantasy.
In 05/1990 The Executioner stopped and bought an Amiga.
Stormbringer and The Cure left in 09/1990, to form a new super NTSC-fixing group together with Pudwerx and Blue Devil (both ex-A Touch of Class) called named Random.
From then on, Exodus was consisting of Warewolf, Gazoo and Grim Reaper. Genesis Project and Censor Design were loyal and remained trading exclusively with them.
In 12/1990 they decided to kill the group. Grim Reaper rejoined NEI/NEC, Warewolf decided to stop on c-64 and Gazoo eventually shut down his infamous BBS.

|Exodus was the best American importing and NTSC fixing group in the scene, ever!|
Submitted by Grim Reaper on 23 December 2008
|When I joined I brought Genesis*Project, Crazy, Dominators, Censor Design, Paramount, Extasy and other groups in to their list as of then their primary contacts being Illusion and NATO who the later was on their way out of the scene. One other correction, Gazoo was also in Exodus when the lineup consisted of Warewolf, Gazoo and myself. Thanks for the interest! We were a tight group, but as all things go, interests/opinions change over time...|

|Wild Warez (Gazoo), Fabulous Disaster (Flyboy) and Disintegration (The Cure) were the big boards from the old days runned by Exodus. Also I remember Skreemer (from old INC) being a good friend in the old days. Thumbs up !!!|
