Guitarist John Ricci of Canadian thrash metal pioneers EXCITER was interviewed for the latest episode of the "Talking Metal" podcast. Ricci calls in to discuss the history of his band and reveals that EXCITER is already working on songs for a new album and that there might be some background EXCITER posters and references in a new Tom Cruise movie. He also shares some great old stories about METALLICA and MEGADETH and talks about his strained relationship with former EXCITER drummer/vocalist Dan Beehler. You can listen to the podcast using the audio player below.

EXCITER released its new album, "Death Machine", on October 29, 2010 via Massacre Records. The effort was made available as a standard CD, a digipak and a limited-edition (500 copies) gatefold LP.

Regarding the musical direction of the new EXCITER material, bassist Robert "Clammy" Cohen told Greece's "Metalzone" radio show last year, "It's classic EXCITER, definitely. It's fast and in your face straight up."

EXCITER 2011 is:

Kenny "Metal Mouth" Winter - Vocals
John Ricci - Guitar
Robert "Clammy" Cohen - Bass
Richard "Rik" Charron - Drums

EXCITER's previous album, "Thrash Speed Burn", was released in North America in November 2008 via Blistering Records, the label formed by industry veterans Tomas Sunmo and Lars Chriss (LION'S SHARE). It marked EXCITER's recorded debut with new singer Kenny Winter, who joined the band in October 2006.
