EXHUMED Returns From The Grave

Gore-metal originators EXHUMED have reformed after a five-year hiatus. The band — 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 reformation; "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.

"I wanted this to be a continuation of what the band was doing and was on its way to doing, not a reunion or some weird nostalgia thing, so the first person I started talking about this with was our guitarist Wes, who has been writing some great songs for the new album, and once he got the ball rolling with Leon and Danny, it came together quickly and easier than ever!"

He added, "We've been writing for the past few months, me in Hawaii, and the other guys in California, and now that I'm back on the mainland we'll be getting things together for album number four.

"We're all really excited about the new shit — it should combine the directness of 'Slaughtercult' and the intricacy of 'Anatomy...', 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.
