Germany’s thrash lifers Exumer are just about ready to release their first recording in 24 years. “Fire & Damnation” will be released by Metal Blade, their label debut, on April 10th. These guys formed in 1985, broke up in the 1990 and then re-united in ’09. What was I doing in ’85? Shitting my pants, not cause I was an infant, but because the Royals won the World Series. Talk about a fluke.
So here we have these 35-40+ Germans getting back in the metal scene after a few decades. The upside is they always knew how to wow the far off markets, gathering a unusually strong following outside of Germany, like Brazil and…Poland. The downside is this could be an album best fit for aging Gen Xers or some youthful Boomers. I hope this resurrection turns out for the people at Metal Blade.
