Cult US Death Metal band EXMORTIS have inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of an EP in late december 2011 and a full length CD in 2012.
The mini CD titled "Resurrection... Book of the Dead" was a long project in the making but after much work was recorded by Brian Werking at Shockwerks Audio in Tampa, Florida during September/ October of 2011. This EP was then mixed and mastered by Javier Fernández at Room 101 Studios in Guadalajara (Spain) in October/ November of the same year.
If you remember EXMORTIS from the early days of Death Metal, then you will enjoy this classic recording set in modern times. The extreme brutality it presents is undoubtedly some of their best work to date and will again engrave itself with a strong hold in the Death Metal underground where they plan to stay.
EXMORTIS was originally inspired by such bands as Destruction, Kreator, Slayer, Possessed and the list goes on. If it's old then that's what EXMORTIS represents. Even to this day EXMORTIS is and will always be an underground sensation.
Songs included on this EP are the following:
1. Creation (intro)
2. Book of the Dead
3. The Slaughter Begins
4. And There was Pain
5. Deep Red
6. Parade of Chanting Ancients
The cover artwork for this CD was created by Eric Rot Engelmann and was colorized by Tinamarie Linares. The release date for this EP is scheduled for December 20th, 2011 and until then you can listen to one advance track called "The Slaughter Begins" on YouTube and the band's official MySpace here:
