Exhumed to release new album in August
Official press release: With over two decades of gruesome grinding under the belts, you might assume West Coast horror hellions would be ready to slow down. You'd be deathly wrong. A true work of sonic repulsion, Exhumed's upcoming Necrocacy full-length is he band's political manifesto for a new dark day. There is no democracy, no equal rights, no freedom of choice -- bow down to your one true master: The Saw! Among Decibel Magazine's most anticipated albums of 2013, Necrocacy delivers nine goretorn tracks of prime audio sickness oozing blazing guitars, filth-stricken vocals and obscene drum blasts. Quite possibly their finest hour yet, as the years roll by Exhumed refuse to mellow. This is a band that stinks like the rotting flesh of a nation waiting for revolution: Vote Necrocracy Party 2013! The follow-up to 2011's maniacal All Guts, No Glory long player was recorded at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia). All drums were tracked at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut). Audio obliteration will be had. Comments Matt Harvey, he of the decrepit death rattle and repugnant requiems: "We're super pumped that 2013 will see the release of Necrocracy. We think it's our heaviest record to date and we can't wait to start playing the new tunes on the road. The album is a bit hookier and meatier than All Guts... and we hope all you maniacs enjoy it. You should find a few more tunes on this one to bang your head and get wasted to! See you on the road or on the slab! Cheerz!" Check out the Necrocracy trailer here: Necrocracy will be released via Relapse Records in North America on August 6th, 2013, August 2nd, 2013 in Germany/Benelux and August 5th, 2013 in the UK/world and come available in CD, LP, Deluxe LP and digital formats.
