Exhumed announce new record, To The Dead, out on October 21st via Relapse Records
Exhumed‘s storied career needs no introduction, as they are the ultimate pioneers of blood-soaked and macabre “Gore” Metal. Three years after their last full-length release – and one year after their last EP -, Exhumed announce a brand-new record, To The Dead, which serves as the culmination of decades upon decades of nightmarish riffs, obliterating blast beats and hellish screams from the very depths the band crawled out from. “To The Dead is a destination,” Exhumed mastermind Matt Harvey says. “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 record. “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!” Harvey says. Below this article you can watch the Nikko DeLuna-directed video for the record’s first single, “Drained of Color”.
To The Dead will be released on October 21st via Relapse Records. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
