Today the metal mavericks at Loudwire bring you the latest tones of torment from West Coast death grind deviants, EXHUMED. Titled “Sickened,” the track features on the band’s impending Necrocracy full-length. A ten-track bloodbath of sonic severity, the record serves as EXHUMED‘s most psychologically traumatizing, musically precise and lyrically profound creation to date. Necrocracy is clearly EXHUMED‘s political manifesto for a new dark day!
Notes Matt Harvey of the tune: “‘Sickened’ is probably our bassist Bodybag Babcock’s favorite tune on the record, and may be the thrashiest tune we came up with for the record. It’s fast, nasty and while hashing it out in the rehearsal room, we referred to the bridge section as the ‘Bay Area pit starter riff,’ which quickly endeared us to the song. We’re definitely planning on including this in our live set when we head out with Dying Fetus this Fall, so get your puffy white hi-tops ready to run in a circle at the appropriate moments. Lyrically, this is a nasty little tale with a slight historical twist — it’s basically about getting the bubonic plague, and not just twisted gory fate it brings, but the despair and isolation the disease brought, as our putrid protagonist’s contagious condition causes him to be shunned by family and friends. So it’s a real upper. Anyway, turn it up, pound a beer, find a friend, and then hit them.”
