Exhumed

    Formed in 1991, when sole remaining founding member Matt Harvey was at the tender age of 15, Exhumed spent much of the ensuing decade hacking its way through numerous line-ups, demos, split CDs, and EPs. The band finally recorded their debut album, the genre-(re)defining and critic-repulsing "Gore Metal" in 1998. The album crystallized the "old-school Death Metal meets full-on Grindcore with the spirit of Thrash" sound forged during the recordings of their last demo and first split CD ("Horrific Expulsion of Gore" and "In the Name of Gore" respectively).

    Formed in 1991, when sole remaining founding member Matt Harvey was at the tender age of 15, Exhumed spent much of the ensuing decade hacking its way through numerous line-ups, demos, split CDs, and EPs. The band finally recorded their debut album, the genre-(re)defining and critic-repulsing "Gore Metal" in 1998. The album crystallized the "old-school Death Metal meets full-on Grindcore with the spirit of Thrash" sound forged during the recordings of their last demo and first split CD ("Horrific Expulsion of Gore" and "In the Name of Gore" respectively).

    This led to the band's first US tour and American festival appearances (their only previous out of California shows had been 9 dates in central Europe in 1997 supporting "In the Name of Gore"). The band continued to morph line-ups with the release ofthe back-to-basics sophomore record "Slaughtercult" in 2001. The album blatantly blended the band's brutal cult-thrash influences into its sonic meat-grinder. This album allowed the band to do three US tours, and their first proper European tour, including co-headlining festivals like Fuck the Commerce and Obscene Extreme. The band also appeared at the Wacken OpenAir festival and made its first trek to Japan.

    The band evolved further with their third album, 2003's "Anatomy is Destiny" which added more sophisticated arrangements, production and instrumentation into the Gore Metal formula; since then the band has adopted some elements of a more melodic sound, particularly with their guitar leads. After the departure of the band's co-founder, drummer Col Jones, the band issued a massive 2CD compilation of their early recordings, appropriately dubbed "Platters of Splatter". After touring all over America, Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia and even Iceland, the band realigned its personnel yet again, with the addition ofdrummer Matt Connell, guitaristWes Caley and the rejoining of bassist/vocalist Leon Del Muerte. The "new and improved"Exhumed has released the band's latest offering, "Garbage Daze Re-Regurgitated", an album of cover songs that reaffirms their underground roots and shows a few new and different sides of the band. The band members are currently atwork creating a DVD planned for release in spring 2006 that will showcase the new line-up, as well as include a myriad of footage from throughout the band's various incarnations.

    Exhumed: Matt Harvey - Dissonant dissection of diatonic disasters and deranged descantin. Leon Del Muerte - Detuned dirges of deleterious disgust and tumescent tracheal trepann. Wes Caley - Thunderous threnodies of thoracic thrashin. Matt Connell- Putrescent pustular pulverizationand excremental esophagal elocution.

    Former Bassist Lorin Aston is now Bassnecta.
