EXHUMED – “Defenders of the Grave”

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 6th 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.

Frontman Matt Harvey commented: “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.”

Death Revenge is set for release on October 13th on CD/LP/DLX LP&CASS/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital order are available via Relapse.com and Bandcamp .
