If you’re a fuckin’ maniac that wants to pound some beers and smash up some tombstones, this is the record you’ve been waiting for.” — Matt Harvey, EXHUMED
Twenty-one years since their murderous debut, EXHUMED continues their onslaught of gore-obsessed death metal on their new album, Horror, coming October 4th via Relapse Records.
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).
In advance of its release, EXHUMED is pleased to unleash first single “Ravenous Cadavers” for public feasting. Elaborates EXHUMED frontman Matt Harvey, “‘Ravenous Cadavers’ is a great taste of the album – and this is one of the more mid-paced tracks on the record, so… Horror is all about stripping away everything and getting down to the core elements of our sound: raw and nasty aggression. The album’s like mainlining grinding death metal at a lethal dose. If you liked the more intricate, melodic stuff that we’ve done, this may not be the one for you. If you’re a fuckin’ maniac that wants to pound some beers and smash up some tombstones, this is the record you’ve been waiting for.”
