EXHUMED To Release Re-Recorded Debut Album “Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015″

Exhumed have announced the re-release of their 1998 debut full length, Gore Metal. But rather than being a simple remastering, the band have re-recorded the entire record. The resulting Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015 will be released through Relapse on February 6 (Germany/Benelux), Feburary 9 (UK/World) and February 10 (North America). On the “new” record, vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey states:

“I’m super pumped that we got the chance to re-record Gore Metal. I don’t think any of us were happy with how it turned out the first time around, so getting another shot at it meant a lot to me personally. I was also really excited to have our old friend Ross Sewage reprise his vocals on the new version, ensuring that it still sounds like that era of EXHUMED, though things are a lot more audible this time around!”

The album artwork, track listing and a stream of “Open the Abscess” can found after the break.

Pre-orders for the album can be found here.

The band’s current touring schedule with Aborted, Origin and Miasmal as well as their upcoming trek with Napalm Death, Voivod, Iron Reagan and Black Crown Initiate can be found below as well.

Review: FULL OF HELL & MERZBOW – “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”

full-of-hell-merzbow-600x580

Formed in 2009 initially under a far more familiar Crowbar-ian banner, Ocean City, MD audio terrorists Full Of Hell have since grown into one of the most innovative acts in contemporary extreme music, bearing name to a consistent assault of constant reinvention bred from a seemingly unending wealth of existential woe and genre-weaving knowhow. On the live circuit, the quartet have fared similarly, holding their vile live exorcisms to the acclaim of endless punk houses and festival audiences the world over, slaying equally audiences Backtrack to The Body. While 2013’s Rudiments Of Mutilation seemed to serve as the band’s magnum opus and a comfortable defining point for the band’s shifting sound, this year’s Full Of Hell & Merzbow, a chance collaboration with the long-standing noise legend, marks the beginnings of yet another new trajectory into alienation for the initially hardcore-rooted band that proves that there is much hell left to explore.
