Review: Exhumed’s To the Dead is Another Choice Cut

The final 10 years has been a fruitful a person for severe metal’s bloodiest band. Right after reforming in 2010 and releasing 2011’s All Guts, No Glory as their comeback report, Exhumed have kept them selves active, releasing another 5 data (in addition a couple splits, a reside album and an EP) in less than a decade. The newest, To the Useless, is because of out Oct 21 on Relapse Data and carries on the band’s bloody legacy in veteran manner.

Not considerably has modified in the Exhumed camp considering that 2019’s Horror. It is guitarist Sebastian Philips’ next comprehensive-duration outing with the gore hounds, joining bandleader/vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey, bassist/vocalist Ross Sewage and drummer Mike Hamilton. The musicianship on To the Dead is limited and the generation is terrible with out sounding sterilized, an necessary when an album’s track titles incorporate “Lurid, Shocking and Vile,” “Nerotica” and “No Headstone Unturned.”

To the Lifeless is a tribute to the previous as very well as a seem ahead for Exhumed. Previous members Mike Beams, Leon del Muerte, Matt Widener and Bud Burke were invited to contribute to the writing course of action, which undoubtedly contributes to the era-traversing scope of the record. The previous members performed on a quantity of Exhumed documents from the basic trilogy of Gore Metallic, Slaughtercult and Anatomy is Future to All Guts, No Glory and even the band’s demos, a point evident all through the grinding dying metal opus.

The very best instant on the to start with 50 percent of To the Dead comes in the kind of “Carbonized,” a sub-3-minute ripper that delivers almost nothing but pounding drums, frantic riffing and a guitar solo that sounds like it may possibly go off the tracks. “Rank and Defiled” has some melodic demise steel swagger, recalling Exhumed taking part in Carcass, and “Lurid, Shocking and Vile” fulfills someplace in the center of the two tracks.

“Undertaking the Overkilled” starts off off the B-side of the album, which attributes, for this writer’s dollars, some of the ideal songs on To the Dead. “Nerotica” straddles the extremity and the melody that make Exhumed’s seem, as does the excellently-titled “No Headstone Unturned.” The report ends with a pair of bangers, “Defecated” and “Disgusted,” two of the strongest on the document. “Defecated” features some really fulfilling staccato riffing and grooving loss of life metallic pieces, offering way to “Disgusted,” which is just a straight melodic-ish demise metal banger.

Exhumed don’t reinvent the wheel on To the Dead and they didn’t want to. By honoring their earlier and continuing to refine their components, they’ve hacked and slashed their way into another killer entry in their discography.

Exhumed’s To the Dead will be launched all over the world on Friday, Oct 21 by means of Relapse.
