Label: Agonia Records – ARLP201
Released: June 25th 2021
Style: Progressive Death Metal
Limited edition, gatefold sleeves format, 12″ black vinyl. Three years after ‘Hadeon’, the band and their totally revamped line-up – besides former Dew Scented and Creepmime Joost van der Graaf on bass and Bleeding Gods’ Rutger van Noordenburg on lead guitar, former God Dethroned Michiel van der Plicht joined on drums last year – not only prove to be worthy of its golden legacy but actually deliver with ‘Exitivm’ what is probably their best incarnation in over a decade, with the kind of instantly recognizable sound that will immediately make all ‘Testimony Of The Ancients’ fans drooling with anticipation while proving they’re not a nostalgia act but are living in the now. Recommended for fans of Death, Atheist, Cynic, Nocturnus, Sadus.
