Death heads rejoice! Exhumed have just announced an all new album “Death Revenge” which will be released on October 13th through Relapse Records! Pre-orders are currently available to those who CLICK HERE.
In support of this upcoming beast, the band has launched their first single “Defenders of the Grave”. You can give it a listen through the official press release provided here:
Lock the mausoleum doors and chain up the cemetery gates. Long-standing gore metal maniacs, Exhumed re-emerge with their disgusting new album, Death Revenge. The band’s sixth full-length sees them tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths. Cover illustration is by Orion Landau with interior illustrations by Lucas Ruggieri.
Frontman Matt Harvey comments: “We’re very excited to see this record come out. It’s been a long time since we’ve fucked up your stereos! I think this record has a darker vibe than the last two, with a pretty gnarly tale of grave-robbery, dissection, murder, and all sorts of general skullduggery. We dig it and we hope you filthy animals will too.”
