Exhumed Begin Work On New Concept Album

Exhumed have revealed that they have officially entered the studio for their new album. The effort, which will be conceptual, is expected to be released later this year.

Matt Harvey commented:

“We entered the studio April 1st with our buddy Jarrett Pritchard (Gruesome, Goatwhore) to start the process and no, this is not an elaborate April Fool’s joke… All Guts, No Glory was more of a straight-up speeding attack, Necrocracy had a bit more focus on groove and incorporating some mid-paced stuff in there, and this one is gonna be a lot darker.

It’s a concept album, which is a first for us, so expect some new twists on our tried-and-true formula: one part late ’80s death metal, half a cup of German/Canadian/Bay Area thrash, a dash of grindcore, crossover, and crust, and the occasional, well-concealed, Hall And Oates rip-off.”

Exhumed Introduce New Bassist/Vocalist

Exhumed have welcomed a new bassist/vocalist into the band. Matt “Slime” Ferri, who is replacing Rob “Bodybag” Babcock, will join the band immediately for their upcoming Fall/Winter tour season.

They introduced Ferri with the following post on Facebook:

“A quick announcement before our Fall / Winter tour season gets started… We’d like to extend a very morbid and maggot-filled welcome to our new bassist / vocalist Matt “Slime” Ferri, who will be meeting all of you mutants on the road shortly. Matt replaces our good friend Rob “Bodybag” Babcock, who we wish all the best for in the future. We’re sure you’ll all make Matt feel welcome onstage (read: buy him beers) and all the guys in the band are psyched to bring you the latest and greatest version of Exhumed. Cheers from Harvey and the usual gang of idiots!”
