“One of the most impressive Technical Death Metal releases of 2021.”
– Jupiter Variation
“More people need to be talking about Eximperitus and after this release, there is no doubt more will.”
– Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life (9/10)
“Šahrartu is an elegant Death Metal record with strong songwriting, impeccable musicianship and a psychedelic, sometimes dreamy, sometimes nightmarish feel.”
– Metal Temple
“This Belorussian death metal act takes a riff base we might hear from the modern Florida school and turns it on its head. Blast beats and non-Western melodies are king here, sprinting forth hand in hand as they pummel each listener, but it still feels familiar enough to be comforting in that special ‘wow, this is extremely brutal death metal’ sort of way.”
– Invisible Oranges
“A challenging, mathematical, and unsettling record, reaching the conceptual cosmos. The intersections of genres such as Death Doom and Prog Rock create a stimulating hearing track by track.”
– Ghost Cult Magazine
“Eximperitus plays more than Death Metal. Šahrartu obviously has a basis made of strong riffs, but the band’s influences can be found in pure oppression, intense heaviness and disturbing distortion.” 
– Acta Infernalis (90/100)
“There are some great passages of music here and the record itself is pretty unusual; yes, Nile or Melechesh could be lazy comparisons- even if they are valid, thematically speaking- but this stands on its own convincingly.”
– The Sludgelord
“Eximperitus have not abandoned the kind of occult thinking that inspires them, and as you’ll discover, they haven’t retreated from their brutalizing modes of musical expression either, though they’ve gotten even better at formulating their brand of esoteric death metal.”
– No Clean Singing
“Eximperitus have put together an impressive record on Šahrartu. Whether it’s killer brutality, engaging melody, or captivating song structures that you’re after, this album is likely to satisfy. Highly recommended.”
– Wonderbox Metal
“One of the most expansive and experimental esoteric records I have heard in a long while. Is it worth your pennies/dollars/kopecks then? Oh hell yes.”
– Ever Metal
“As often as we see the ‘from birth to death’ sensation within existential death metal records, the great success in the hands of Eximperitus is their ability to deliver this, while honing their sound to a point of focus that doesn’t disrupt their core rhythmic personality, only dials up the dynamic space-faring quality of their groove.”
– Grizzly Butts
“Eximperitus bring bizarre, penetrating magic on “Šahrartu,” a record that can easily be labeled as technically proficient death metal, but there’s so much more going on.”
– Meat Mead Metal
“Riffs that snarl slowly back up ethereal drone solos Jerry Cantrell would be proud of, as the drumming goes from a babbling brook of technical percussion to a tidal wave of blast beats. The balance of brawn and beauty is impressive and the technical precision of each note gives the band away as a group who clearly love their craft.”
– Antichrist Magazine
“Musically, EXIMPERITUS are often reminiscent of a more atmospheric version of NILE. EXIMPERITUS definitely create a special atmosphere on their second album.”
– Metal.de
“A very interesting release in all respects. Although it contains the technical elements, the classic “noise” of death metal, under these musical compositions is hidden something very atmospheric.”
– GreekRebels

Hailing from Minsk, Belarus, EXIMPERITUS takes its name from dead languages of the Ancient East. The band was formed in 2009 and released its first demo – Triumpho Tenebrarum In Profundis Mors – in 2011. Two years later the band released another demo, Promo 2013.

In 2016, EXIMPERITUS released its debut full-length, Projecting the Singular Emission of the Doctrine of Absolute and All-Absorbing Evil…, on Japanese label Amputated Vein Records. Despite its provocative and perplexing lyrical concepts, the album was highly-acclaimed by listeners and critics, receiving rave reviews in numerous webzines and music issues around the world. The album proved EXIMPERITUS to be a band capable of creating a detailed, conceptual universe consisting of sophisticatedly composed music with inexpressible majestic atmosphere. The debut was followed in 2017 by W2246-0525, an EP that showcased the next step in EXIMPERITUS’ evolution.

As work began for another full-length album, the band released a single titled “Tahâdu” in 2019. The song showed continued progression in the band’s sound and song-crafting and captured the attention of a growing legion of fans. 

EXIMPERITUS then signed with Willowtip Records for the release of Šahrartu. The album is a grandiose and majestic representation of a new era of death metal being ushered in by EXIMPERITUS.
