EXHUMED‘s sixth full-length sees them tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths. Cover illustration is by Orion Landau with interior illustrations by Lucas Ruggieri (lucasriggieriillustration.com).

In related news, EXHUMED will take to the streets next month on a US headlining tour set to commence November 15th and run through December 8th. Support will be provided by Arkaik.

“…a fun, worthwhile listen, especially with Halloween just around the corner. I’m especially impressed with the historical inspiration, which gives it some more weight than the usual slasher fest.” — Metal Injection

“…a magnum opus that sees a much more ambitious EXHUMED.” — Paste Magazine

“…serious killer classic headbanging shit…” — Team Rock

“The album is filled with blood-curdling growls and powerful drumming, which is to be expected from Matt Harvey and company, but it still feels fresh and compelling. And while EXHUMED have always had a theatrical aspect to them, Death Revenge has brought out a more pensive side of the band. It was an ambitious undertaking and it paid off, proving just how much psychotic creativity they still have to offer. — Exclaim!

“…an absolute blast of a record. Six studio albums into their career, and EXHUMED continue to show their commitment and talent for creating fun and pulse racing death metal. With an intriguing concept and incredibly fast and technical instrumentation that creates emotion, EXHUMED present a terrific work that will get folks moshing through graveyards and partying with the dead.” — New Noise
