Published Jun 13, 2013Two years after delivering All Guts, No Glory, reunited California gore-grinders Exhumed are set to issue their next splattery attack, Necrocracy. Relapse Records drops the set in North America on August 6.
A press release explains that this latest LP delivers 10 "goretorn tracks of prime audio sickness" and was mostly recorded by Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia) at Chandler, AZ's Arcane Digital Recording. Michael Hamilton's "obscene drum blasts," however, were recorded at Corona, CA's Trench Studios with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut).
While a statement from guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey had him describing Necrocracy as the band's "heaviest record to date," he added that "the album is a bit hookier and meatier than All Guts, No Glory." You can sample a bit of thrashing via a new politically charged album trailer.
On top of the standard CD, digital and vinyl editions, a deluxe LP dubbed the "Necrocracy Party 2013 Political Rally Pack" comes packaged with a bonus CD including five additional tunes, a pin set, a bumper sticker and posters. You can pre-order them all over here.
Exhumed are currently touring Europe but have unveiled a fall tour schedule for North America that will have them hitting Canadian stops between Vancouver and Winnipeg. Joining them on select tour dates will be Dying Fetus, Devourment, Waking the Cadaver, Abiotic and Rivers of Nihil. You can see all the North American stops below.
