EXHUMED Begins Recording New Album

After nearly two years of nonstop live demolition, West Coast gore-torn death metal goliaths EXHUMED recently entered the studio to record to the follow-up to 2011's "All Guts, No Glory". The band is currently tracking drums at Trench Studio in Corona, California with John Haddad (HIRAX, ABYSMAL DAWN, INTRONAUT). Everything else will be laid down at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (MISERY INDEX, LANDMINE MARATHON, PHOBIA). The as-yet-untitled longplayer is expected to offer up ten tracks of audio sickness, including "Carrion Call", "Sickened", "The Rotting" and "Coins Upon The Eyes", and will be released via Relapse Records sometime next year.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey of the new material: "We're super psyched to be back in the studio working on a new record. The songs we've worked up are a bit darker and more open this time around, but, of course, built on the same disgusting foundation we've been repulsing people with for years. It's a really natural progression from 'All Guts...' and it's a lot of fun to work with the lineup that's done all the touring. It feels a lot more like a 'real band' situation this time around.

"There will be periodic studio reports on our blog, if you want to stay abreast of all the excruciating details.

"We can't wait to get this thing ready to assault your ears!"

EXHUMED 2012 features the smoldering lineup of Harvey alongside bassist Rob "Body Bag" Babcock, drummer Mike Hamilton and guitarist/vocalist Bud Burke, who played bass with the band from 1999 to 2004 and recently rejoined the legion for their live rituals on this year's Summer Slaughter Tour.

In related news, EXHUMED previously announced live takeover of Japan with death metal legends CANNIBAL CORPSE will commence on October 15 in Tokyo and serve as a warm-up to the band's five-week North American Tour with NAPALM DEATH and MUNICIPAL WASTE.
