Please excuse my lack of updates on old-school thrash metal bands, hopefully this update on German thrashers Exumer will make up for it!
For those who don’t know Exumer are a killer thrash metal band from Germany that formed in the ’80s and have two insane releases under their belt – “Possessed by Fire” and “Rising From The Sea.” Personally I am a huge fan of both these albums and I know a lot of people out there feel the same way as I do. Unfortunately for 25 years those would be the only two Exumer albums unleashed upon the masses for our listening pleasure. During the course of the last year Exumer announced they would be entering the studio in order to record a highly anticipated third album, and I don’t think I’m the only person out there that literally jumped for joy after hearing the good news! My excitement only escalated when just a few months later Exumer announced they have indeed finished recording their new album and were in search of a label to release it under. It appears the band found a good home with LAs Metal Blade Records and the bands third album “Fire and Damnation” is just a few weeks from being released!
The band released the title track of the album a little while ago and I’m absolutely loving what I’m hearing from the band on this song. Take a listen and I think you’ll agree!
If that track wasn’t sick enough for you the band released yet another song yesterday that once again proves Exumer are back!
The album is available for pre-order at this location. If you’ve never heard Exumer before it appears now is a good time to get into them.
