Exhumed

Formed in 1991, when sole remaining founding member Matt Harvey was at the tender age of 15, Exhumed spent much of the ensuingdecade 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 thespirit of Thrash" sound forged during the recordings of their last demo and first split CD ("Horrific Expulsion of Gore" and "In the Name ofGore"respectively).

Formed in 1991, when sole remaining founding member Matt Harvey was at the tender age of 15, Exhumed spent much of the ensuingdecade 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 thespirit of Thrash" sound forged during the recordings of their last demo and first split CD ("Horrific Expulsion of Gore" and "In the Name ofGore"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 incentral Europe in 1997 supporting "In the Name of Gore"). The band continued to morph line-ups with the release of the back-to-basicssophomore 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 theCommerce and Obscene Extreme. The band also appeared at the Wacken Open Air 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, productionand 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 amassive 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 of drummer Matt Connell, guitaristWes Caley and the rejoining of bassist/vocalist Leon DelMuerte. The "new and improved"Exhumed has released the band's latest offering, "Garbage Daze Re-Regurgitated", an album of cover songs that reaffirms their undergroundroots and shows a few new and different sides of the band.The band members are currently at work creating a DVD planned for release in spring 2006 that will showcase the new line-up, as well asinclude a myriad of footage from throughout the band's various incarnations.

Exhumed:Matt Harvey - Dissonant dissection of diatonic disasters and deranged descanting Leon DelMuerte - Detuned dirges of deleterious disgustand tumescent tracheal trephany Wes Caley - Thunderous threnodies of thoracic thrashing Matt Connell - Putrescent pustular pulverizationand excremental esophagal elocution.
