EXHUMED: Band Reforms After Five Year Hiatus
EXHUMED, featuring founding and original member Matt Harvey on guitar and vocals along with returning members Leon Del Muerte (PHOBIA, MURDER CONSTRUCT) on bass and vocals, Wes Caley (UPHILL BATTLE) on guitar, and Danny Walker (INTRONAUT, MURDER CONSTRUCT, UPHILL BATTLE) on drums — will begin recording the follow-up to 2003’s Anatomy Is Destiny this fall for a spring 2011 release.
Harvey commented on the band’s reformation saying,
I’m totally fuckin’ psyched to be making music with EXHUMED again, it’s been way too long. After a few years off and away from the death metal scene, I feel rejuvenated and ready to hack, maim and kill once again. We’ve been writing for the past few months, me in Hawaii, and the other guys in California, We’re all really excited about the new shit — it should combine the directness of Slaughtercult and the intricacy of Anatomy Is Destiny, so it’s definitely gonna be our strongest record yet.
EXHUMED’s first North American appearance will take place at next year’s Maryland Deathfest. To commemorate the band’s return to the stage, they are asking fans to pick the group’s setlist. Suggestions are being welcomed on the band’s MySpace page.
