Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza is one of the two singers, along side with Chuck Billy from Testament, for Dublin Death Patrol, and was a lead singer for the thrash metal bands Legacy (later known as Testament) and Exodus.
Zetro is most well known for his time in Exodus, for whom he sang between 1986 and 1992 after being brought in to replace Paul Baloff. Before singing for Exodus, he was the lead singer for the band Legacy (which became Testament after his departure), recording one demo. At the time of his departure of Legacy, he introduced Chuck Billy to Legacy members and joined Exodus. Exodus was disbanded shortly after the release of Force Of Habit. He later rejoined the reformed Exodus for 2004’s Tempo of the Damned, again replacing Baloff (but this time under more tragic circumstances), but abruptly quit during the South American tour. He recently hosted the Thrash Against Cancer benefit at The Pound in San Francisco, and appeared onstage with Testament at a gig in Concord, California.
His voice is reminiscent of AC/DC’s former vocalist Bon Scott, and can be heard on the AC/DC covers that Exodus recorded during the 80’s, “Overdose” and “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”. He's also a member of a cover band named AC/DZ.
Souza is currently managing a metal band called Oskorei; Cody Souza (Steve’s eldest son) currently plays bass in the band. Oskorei is: Blake Peterson (Vocals/Guitar) Corey Lee (Drums) Alex Beck (Guitar) Cody Souza (Bass)
In 2006 he and Chuck Billy formed Dublin Death Patrol, an American Thrash Metal band.
As of July 2008, Zetro Souza is now the lead singer for the Metal band Tenet.
In 2010 he founded Hatriot.
