EXHUMED returns from the depths with their macabre new album, To The Dead, set for release on October 21st via Relapse Records. Today, the band shares its second single, “Carbonized.”
Frontman Matt Harvey comments, “For me, the most exciting thing about To The Dead is that it’s the most collaborative record we’ve ever done. Our own six-string slime-slinger Sebastian Phillips disgorged the riffs for ‘Carbonized,’ the disgusting little ditty we’ve selected as the second single from the album. Then Ross, Mike, and I worked out the lyrics, so this ode to cerebral incineration is truly a group effort — which takes some of the blame away from yours truly if you guys hate it! For the optimal carbonizing experience, turn out the lights, crank up the volume, spark a bowl, and this tune will vaporize what’s left of your senses and sanity!”

EXHUMED are the pioneers of blood-soaked gore metal and the band’s storied career needs no introduction. To the Dead is the culmination of decades upon decades of nightmarish riffs, obliterating blastbeats, and hellish screams from the very depths the band crawled out from!
“To The Dead is a destination,” notes Harvey. “A rotting world populated by the grotesquely twisted truths of our waking world and the decaying fallout of our most deranged ambitions. But it’s also a title that evokes a celebration of, and an invitation into, the gore-soaked world of EXHUMED.”
The very celebration of EXHUMED’s history is ever-present on this album. “We’ve expanded the writing team on the record to include former members Mike Beams, Leon del Muerte, Matt Widener, and Bud Burke in an effort to celebrate the band’s history — at this point decades of it — and I think the resulting record is an excellent testament to the surprising longevity of Gore Fucking Metal!”
So please, accept the band’s humble invitation and sink six feet down to their level. EXHUMED can’t wait for you to get a whiff of what they’ve cooked up — this will be the most fun you’ve ever had being disgusted.
