Label: Comatose Music – COMA068
Released: 15 October 2013
Style: Death/grindcore metal
What makes this band so unique is their approach to this kind of music. A frightening, horrific vibe in these songs that is actually scares the hell out of you at the same time it’s making you sick. It gives you that feeling deep in your gut of an imminent horror as you come to grips with the fact of mortality. This really sends this cd over the edge in that respect. There is use of a keyboard in some parts of this album which just adds to this feeling. The guitars are thick, yet sharp and precise, and somewhat reminiscent of the sound on Cannibal Corpse’s “The Bleeding” with a more gore grind edge to them. The drums are really in your face on all of these songs. It’s almost like this guy is trying to do his best impression of Hellhammer from Mayhem. If you are into bands like Cannibal Corpse, Lust of Decay, Origin, Nasum, and Gorerotted, then I would say it’s a pretty safe assumption that Exhumer will have a place in your metal collection.
