Official press release:

Exhumed returns from the depths with their macabre new album, To The Dead, out October 21st on Relapse Records! In advance of the record’s release, today the band unleashes a video for first single, “Drained Of Color”, directed by Nikko DeLuna.

Comments frontman Matt Harvey:

“Like a lingering infection, we’ve returned to excruciate your eardrums and splatter your senses! The lads and I are very stoked to excrete our latest audio abortion onto the collective face of the underground. We’ve dialed up the ‘gross-o-meter’ to 666, so if gore-soaked blastbeats, disgusting vocals, and meat-cleaving riffs are your idea of a good time, you’re in for a fucken treat!”

To The Dead will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats. Physical pre-orders are available at Find digital pre-orders here.

Additionally, Exhumed will kick off a US headlining tour this Fall. The journey runs from November 11th through December 17th. Support will be provided by Hulder and Vitriol as well as Molder from November 11th through November 22nd and Castrator from November 23rd through the tour’s conclusion. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 1st. See all confirmed dates below.

Exhumed are the pioneers of blood-soaked gore metal and the band’s storied career needs no introduction. To The Dead is the culmination of decades upon decades of nightmarish riffs, obliterating blastbeats, and hellish screams from the very depths the band crawled out from! Harvey notes:

To The Dead is a destination. A rotting world populated by the grotesquely twisted truths of our waking world and the decaying fallout of our most deranged ambitions. But it’s also a title that evokes a celebration of, and an invitation into, the gore-soaked world of Exhumed.”

The very celebration of Exhumed’s history is ever-present on this album. Harvey continues:

“We’ve expanded the writing team on the record to include former members Mike Beams, Leon del Muerte, Matt Widener, and Bud Burke in an effort to celebrate the band’s history — at this point decades of it — and I think the resulting record is an excellent testament to the surprising longevity of Gore Fucking Metal!”

So please, accept the band’s humble invitation and sink six feet down to their level. Exhumed can’t wait for you to get a whiff of what they’ve cooked up — this will be the most fun you’ve ever had being disgusted!
