Since the release of their debut album In Hatreds Flame during July 2008, EXMORTUS have kept busy touring and gigging relentlessly with bands such as label mates Vektor and LA black thrashers Witchaven. After suffering a temporary setback with the departure of former frontman Balmore during early 2010, the band rebounded quickly with lead guitar shredder Conan taking over on vocals and the addition of new guitarist Sean Redline. The short break from their busy live schedule also provided the band with the time needed to complete the material for their upcoming sophomore album entitled Beyond the Fall of Time. Armed to the teeth with their most aggressive material to date the death-thrash quartet entered Black Static Studio in Los Angeles to begin recording Beyond the Fall of Time, tentatively scheduled for release during late summer 2011 on Heavy Artillery Records. Drummer Mario Moreno had this to say about the new line-up and progress in the studio to date:
“We’ve been at Black Static Studios for nine days now and we feel that we couldn’t have picked a better studio to capture the new material. The line-up change during early 2010 set our original recording plans back by several months so we’re excited to finally be recording this album. With the new line-up of Conan on vocals and the addition of Sean Redline on second guitar the band is at its strongest ever. We’re really happy with the new material and the heavier sound. Sean has contributed a lot of great ideas to the album overall and Conan will finally get to showcase his vocals.”
Catch EXMORTUS live at the Black Castle in Los Angeles on Friday March 25th with Witchaven, Killbot, Zombie Holocaust and more.
