Exumer

Formed in 1985 by singer/bassist Mem V. Stein and guitarist Ray Mensh, Exumer released Possessed by Fire in 1986, and Rising from the Sea in 1987, albums that are regarded as some of the most cult thrash metal releases ever to come out of Germany. Exumer was also one of the first thrash metal acts to capture exotic, foreign markets like Poland and Brazil, where their albums were domestically released in the 1980s.

Formed in 1985 by singer/bassist Mem V. Stein and guitarist Ray Mensh, Exumer released Possessed by Fire in 1986, and Rising from the Sea in 1987, albums that are regarded as some of the most cult thrash metal releases ever to come out of Germany. Exumer was also one of the first thrash metal acts to capture exotic, foreign markets like Poland and Brazil, where their albums were domestically released in the 1980s. Ultimately, the band was plagued by line-up changes and internal turmoil, which lead to a break up in 1990. The band performed live in 2001 at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival, which served as their only live appearance until 2009.

Mem and Ray decided to re-activate Exumer in 2008. The band embarked on their first tour since 1988 with five shows in April and May of 2009. The "5 Nights of Fire Tour", took the band through Europe (Germany, Holland, Greece), and the USA, where they headlined the "Thrasho de Mayo Festival", in front of over a thousand fans in Los Angeles.

Metal Blade Records released Fire & Damnation in April of 2012, which catapulted Exumer back onto the forefront of the international music scene. Shows across the globe between 2012 and 2015 (Bang Your Head Festival in Germany, South and North American Offensive Tour, Blastfest in Norway, European Frost and Fire Tour, Wacken, Headbangers Open Air) further cemented the band's cult status among the ranks of classic thrash metal acts in the world. « hide
