Exhumed & Gruesome Announce New Split Release

Exhumed and Gruesome have announced a new split release titled “Twisted Horror.” The effort will be available on June 5 and it will feature three songs from Exhumed, “Rot Your Brain,“ “Buried To Die,” and “Dead, Deader, Deadest,” and two songs from Gruesome, “A Mind Decayed” and “Led Into The Dark.“ You can stream Exhumed’s “A Mind Decayed“ below:

Matt Harvey commented:

“As everyone knows, it’s a weird, surreal time for us all. So many plans have been disrupted at this point, it’s academic to even get into, but one thing that we didn’t want to postpone was this new Exhumed / Gruesome split record.

With so many of us stuck at home, we’re all depending on Death Metal to keep us sane more than ever, so we figured why wait? We’ve also been working on a US tour featuring both Exhumed and Gruesome (and some awesome special guests), and as soon as it’s realistic to announce something, we will.

In the meantime, here’s new music to warp your impressionable minds, so tune in, turn on, and rot your brain!”

Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Primitive Man & Hell Announce New Split Release

Primitive Man and Hell have announced that their new split release will be available on February 22. The effort will feature Primitive Man’s “Oily Tears” and “Pitiful & Loathsome“ and Hell’s “Nuumen.“ Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Primitive Man’s Ethan McCarthy commented:

“The world is rotting all around us and that’s what these songs are about. We chose to do a split with Hell out of a mutual respect for their art. M.S.W. has easily written some of the best doom/sludge songs of the last 5 years and we’re excited to be able to share a release with him.”

Hell‘s M.S.W. added:

“At the time I was in the mood to write more in the style of the Hell I album. Stomping, deep, low-fi. The lyrics are about the everyday struggle of crippling anxiety and depression but not to fear it. Embrace it and use it to your advantage until it subsides, if at all. ‘Do not fear what you suffer. Do not fear the compression in your chest.’

The lyrics are aimed toward being surrounded by greed and the overlords that control this fucked up place we exist in as if they were born in Hell. Hell and Primitive Man have played multiple shows/fests together and we’ve always been fans of each others tunes. Sometimes all you have to do is ask. I am excited for this release to finally come out and very happy to be on wax with those dudes.”
