Exhumed dig up and remake Gore Metal

Posted by on January 29, 2015

The 1998 debut album by Exhumed, Gore Metal, has been dug up and brought back to life! Featuring just guitarist and vocalist Matt Harvey from that late 90s line-up, Exhumed has re-recorded this gem and will be releasing Gore Metal: A Necrospective on February 10th on Relapse Records.

Said Harvey on the fresh new take of the album opener:

“‘Necromaniac’ was a song that we felt best exemplified what we were going for on Gore Metal: Possessed and Repulsion ripoff riffs, grunts, screams, whammy bar obnoxiousness, and a traditional song structure. Hence why we chose it for the album’s leadoff track. We’ve played the song countless times live throughout the years and I don’t hate it yet, which is a good sign! This version is a lot more listenable and coherent, which may or not be a good thing depending on your taste. Anyway, if all that sounds like your kind of thing, give this revamped version a listen!”

Exhumed is currently out on the Through Space and Grind tour with Napalm Death, Voivod, Iron Reagan, and Black Crown Initiate.
