EXUMER reveals details for new album, ‘Hostile Defiance’

Launches first video and single! European dates announced!

On April 5th, legendary multinational Thrash Metallers EXUMER will release their fifth full-length, ‘Hostile Defiance‘, via Metal Blade Records.

Hostile Defiance‘ is exactly what its title suggests. A 42-minute full on attack, the thrash faction hold nothing back as they unleash hell as only they can, yet with more variety and dynamics than ever before. “We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety,” states vocalist Mem Von Stein. “We are a lot braver trying to create an up to date and relevant sound that can easily stand alone in today’s thrash landscape without sounding trite or a throwback, and we’re challenging the listener not to get too comfortable with one specific feel, tempo or pace.

For a preview of the album, the first single, ‘Hostile Defiance’, can be heard at: metalblade.com/exumer – the video for the title track was created by renowned cover artist Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Voivod a.o.) who was also in charge for the front art and the layout of ‘Hostile Defiance‘.

Hostile Defiance‘ marks EXUMER‘s third time working with producer Dennis Koehne (Sodom,Melechesh), tracking the album in studios in Dortmund and Frankfurt, and the sessions were marked with “super positive vibes all around with a strong, driven work ethic to create an optimal product.” The band plans to tour the record hard, and will be hitting the road in Europe when the album drops, and from that point onward they will be visiting as many countries as possible. “Our goal is simple: to further establish the band as one of the main German thrash metal acts that began in the 1980s and are now carrying the torch into the 2020s.
