Metal Injection is currently streaming “Playing With Fear” from gore metal maniacs, EXHUMED. The track comes by way of the band’s forthcoming new full-length, Horror, set for release worldwide this Friday via Relapse Records.

Writes Metal Injection, “EXHUMED has replaced mincing words with mincing people when it comes to their new record Horror. Song titles like ‘Naked, Screaming And Covered In Blood’ and ‘Playing With Fear’ let you know exactly what you’re getting into, and just to drive that point home, we’re premiering the latter today. ‘Playing With Fear’ slows things down a little bit, but by no means does it aim to pulverize your entire body into paste any less.”

Streams the band’s previously-released track “Ravenous Cadavers” and view their NSFW (nudity, blood) video for “Naked, Screaming, And Covered In Blood.”

Aptly titled, Horror is an exploration of all things macabre, as the undisputed pioneers of neck-breaking riffs plow through fifteen of the band’s most intense tracks to date. Nightmares meet shred, as the speed-inducing track “Ravenous Cadavers” highlight EXHUMED‘s penchant for blazing, face melting guitar work, while “Naked, Screaming And Covered In Blood” and “Playing With Fear” elevate EXHUMED to levels of grind unheard of since Gore Metal!

Horror was recorded at EXHUMED‘s home-built studio Darker Corners (a first in the band’s career), produced by the band and Alejandro Corredor (Brujeria, Nausea), and mixed and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). The record will be unleashed on October 4th on CD, LP, deluxe LP, and digital formats. Physical packages are available for preorder via Relapse.com HERE. Digital downloads/streaming services are available HERE.

“The clarity is mesmerizing — the drum tone alone should serve as a paradigm for sound engineers of any genre. Likewise, every riff is as legible and as textured as a braille manifesto, no mean feat given that EXHUMED have beefed up their horsepower of their Terrorize, Carcass and Exodus programming into glorious overdrive. Each passage lunges forward as escape velocity, almost as of wishing to overtake itself while always remaining meaningful, catchy. and fucking deadly.” — Decibel

EXHUMED have never lost their knack for a razor-sharp hook and there are plenty of those here, but it’s the sheer gleeful intensity of the whole thing that will keep you coming back for more. These old masters know exactly what they’re doing, and what they’re doing is ripping faces off in the name of all that’s hideous and wrong. Bravo.” — Blabbermouth

“Horror will rip you up…” — Metal Crypt

“Decay is in the air, the days are getting morbid, and it’s again time to wash yourself in the guts of other victims, at least while it’s seasonally appropriate to do so. In that case, EXHUMED‘s Horror is arriving at the right time, when you might walk away feeling a little less depraved having enjoyed this filth so thoroughly. Actually, EXHUMED‘s music is truly for any season; it just feels nastier and more sinister doing so when we’re celebrating violence of all kinds again.” — Meat Mead Metal

“Always good for some campy gore-thrashing grind, EXHUMED are delivering it straight up on Horror. ‘Naked, Screaming And Covered In Blood’ is perfect for natural crowd participation and it’s snaking thrash attack is just as much tongue-in-cheek as it is chainsaw-to-throat.” — Loudwire, 2019’s Best Metal Songs…So Far
