EXUMER announces line-up change

July 16th, 2013

exumer_2.jpgGerman thrashers EXUMER have parted ways with guitarist H.K., who played his last show at the Bang Your Festival in Germany on July 13. The guitarist’s departure has been an amicable one and has left for solely personal reasons.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “We were sad to let H.K. go after touring with him for the past three years and recording our comeback album in 2011. However, the thrashing must go on and we already have found a session guitarists who will accompany us to South and North America for our upcoming tour dates there. We will try our best to fulfill all our touring obligations and find a permanent 2nd guitarist as soon as possible to ensure a band chemistry that will take EXUMER to the next level.” Read the rest of this entry »

EXUMER announces show in Brooklyn, NY!

May 22nd, 2013

German thrash veterans, EXUMER, have confirmed a New York City show on September 21, 2013.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “We are beyond thrilled to be finally playing in NYC. We haven’t played on North American soils since the THRASHO DE MAYO festival in L.A., four years ago.

Thrash fans can catch a glimpse of what EXUMER’s live show is like in the band’s music video for “Fire & Damnation” on youtube HERE.

EXUMER confirms appearance at Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse Festival 2013 in Chicago, IL

November 13th, 2012

German thrash metal legends EXUMER have been confirmed to appear at the Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse Festival in Chicago, IL! The fest is scheduled to take place from May 3-4, 2013, and also includes Onslaught, Eldritch, Oz, Omen, and many more. Information and tickets can be found at ragnarokkrmetal.com and facebook.com/RagnarokkrMetal. This appearance will be part of EXUMER’s first full U.S. tour in the band’s 27 year long history, which is scheduled to take place April/May 2013. Dates and details will be announced as they are confirmed.

EXUMER released their latest album, Fire & Damnation, in April of this year. The album, described by Bloody Disgusting as a “blistering, arcing, glorious moshfest”, is the band’s third full length release and first since 1987′s Rising from the Sea. EXUMER’s debut album, Possessed by Fire, holds exalted status in the thrash underground as being one of the best releases of its era. And now, in 2012, EXUMER has returned to the stage, many years wiser, and as electrifying as ever. Fans can watch the video for the title track Fire & Damnation at metalblade.com/exumer.

EXUMER premiere first official video “Fire & Damnation”

August 27th, 2012

German thrash legends EXUMER have premiered the video to the title track of their most recent album, Fire & Damnation. It’s the band’s first ever official video clip in their 27 year-long history and was entirely filmed and edited in Sao Paulo, Brazil, during EXUMER’s South American Damnation tour earlier this summer.

The footage combines the band’s explosive live performance with the harsh conditions prevalent in some of Sao Paulo’s less affluent and privileged neighborhoods, making it a fast pace assault on the viewer’s senses.

Comments vocalist Mem V. Stein: “The idea behind the clip was to showcase the band’s intense relationship with our Brazilian fans in a live situation and the disparities that are still present in one of the fastest growing economies in the world. We chose the song Fire & Damnation because its vibe is quite universal, where you don’t have look to religion or elsewhere to find damnation here on earth. Ultimately, the clip is a “thank you” to all our fans in South America and around the world as we always try to relate to them in an honest and very real way.”

EXUMER confirmed for Italy’s Rock Hard Festival

June 12th, 2012

German thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to appear at this year’s Rock Hard Festival in Milan/Italy, on September 15, 2012. Also on the bill for the festival are Danish thrashers ARTILLERY, who have just come off the co-headlining “South American Damnation” tour with EXUMER through Argentina, Chile and Brazil. EXUMER’s management is now working on on a European installment of the EXUMER/ARTILLERY package and are planning additional dates with both bands throughout Europe in September/October, 2012.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “Our “South American Damnation” tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn’t want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe.”

The line up for the “Rock Hard Festival Italia 2012″ shapes up as follows:
MARDUK (SE)
BULLDOZER (IT)
ARTILLERY (DK)
EXUMER (DE)
IMMOLATION (US)
many more tba…

German Thrash Metal legends EXUMER launch 2nd single “Vermin Of The Sky”

March 20th, 2012

Legendary German Thrashers EXUMER are all set for the release of their long anticipated comeback album Fire & Damnation, to be released April 6th/10th via Metal Blade Records in Europe, April, 10th in North America!

Metal Hammer Germany is now exclusively premiering the second single Vermin Of The Sky. Surf over to Metal-Hammer.de to stream the song – HERE!

Comments EXUMER singer Mem V. Stein: “Vermin of the Sky”, is a perfect example of how we maintained a very 1980s song writing approach, incorporating catchy hooks and a memorable breakdown that is reminiscent of our work from the 80s. I tried to use strong imagery throughout the record and this track is inspired by the consequences of last year´s earthquake and subsequent tsunami that almost caused a complete fall-out at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. The Vermin of the Sky refers to the radiation and other airborne dangers that we are exposed to, not only in emergency zones, but also in our daily lives.”

Make also sure to visit the landing page that includes pre-order links as well as the title track off Fire & Damnation! Surf over to http://www.metalblade.com/exumer to check it out!

EXUMER recorded their first new album in 25 years with renowned producer Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Therion, Sodom, Moonspell, etc.) at the helm. The 10-track strong, hard-hitting CD Fire & Damnation combines a punishing production with aggressive song writing. EXUMER manages to capture the intensity and feel of the 1980s thrash metal gems and yet sound up to date on their latest output.

Fire & Damnation will catapult EXUMER back in the forefront of the international music markets and the following live assaults in 2012; will only further cement the band’s cult status among the ranks of classic thrash metal acts in the world!

Tom Angelripper of SODOM loves the album and comments “This is how “real” thrash is meant to sound. The production is flawless and crystal clear. I’d dare to say that I like this album even better than their older material and think it’s more innovative, even though I am deeply rooted in the old school. I am really surprised! It reminds me a lot of DESTRUCTION and EXODUS, but they’ve managed to create their own unique style. Thumbs up to you, gents!”

Track listing Fire & Damnation: Fire & Damnation
Vermin Of The Sky
The Weakest Limb
A New Morality
Waking The Fire
Fallen Saint
Crushing Point
Devil Chaser
I Dare You
Tribal Furies

EXUMER are:
Mem V. Stein-Vocals

Comments EXUMER singer Mem V. Stein: “With “Fire & Damnation”, we tried to create the most punishing and dominant thrash metal album of our career. No lackluster songs, no fillers, no lazy performance and no compromises. It moves straight forward from the the very first song to the last, delivering a vibrant mix of skilled musicianship with the urgency of the classic thrash records from the 1980s!”

Also make sure to surf over to Metal Blade TV to check out the trailer that features music of Fire & Damnation as well as the stunning front cover! The art direction and production of the clip was executed by German-born artist Cyphers-X, who has worked with bands such as The Very End in the past.

Formed in 1985, by singer/bassist Mem V. Stein and guitarist Ray Mensh, EXUMER went on to release two albums in 1986 (Possessed by Fire), and 1987 (Rising from the Sea), that are regarded as some of the most cult thrash metal releases ever to come out of Germany. EXUMER was also one of the first thrash metal acts to capture exotic, foreign markets like Poland and Brazil, where their albums were domestically released in the 1980s. The subsequent tours that followed those releases secured the band live shows in front of thousands of fans and an unusually large following outside of Germany. Plagued by line-up changes and internal turmoil the band broke up in 1990, and did not perform live, with the exception in 2001 at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival, until 2009.

Mem and Ray decided to re-activate EXUMER in 2008, and the band embarked on their first tour since 1988, where they played 5 shows in April/May of 2009. The “5 Nights of Fire Tour”, took the band through Europe (Germany, Holland, Greece), and the USA, where they headlined the “Thrasho de Mayo Festival”, in front of 1300 fans in Los Angeles.

EXUMER returned to Europe in spring and the fall of 2010, where the band appeared at Norway’s “Inferno Festival”, among other stops in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Poland and Bulgaria during their “European Ignition Tour Part I & II”.

Watch out for Fire & Damnation to be released the 10th of April, 2012!

EXUMER announces details for new CD

April 26th, 2011

German thrashers EXUMER will be recording and mixing their first album release in 24 years, in Dortmund/Germany over the summer. The band has recruited legendary producer, Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Enemy of the Sun, Voodoocult, Therion, Tiamat, Moonspell etc.), to produce what will be the third EXUMER album to date. The band will enter the studio in early June and remain there throughout July to complete the recording/mixing process.

EXUMER commissioned Baptiste Treton, a French born artist who resides in Vietnam, to illustrate the new album’s artwork.

 

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments:

“We basically took off from playing live for this entire year in order to concentrate solely on writing, recording and mixing this record. Waldemar was the most logical choice for us in regards to producing this very important album. We heard what he had done with the last SODOM album and we all agreed that he is capable of preserving the spirit of a 1980s thrash band but still make them sound relevant today. That is exactly what we envision for EXUMER. We became quite confident that we will achieve this objective after meeting Waldemar earlier this year and trust his intuition as a producer, songwriter and musician, as well as his ability to push EXUMER’s envelope when it is necessary.”

 

EXUMER began negotiating with several labels to release their upcoming CD and will announce the album’s title once a deal is closed.

EXUMER confirmed to headline Mexico’s Keep the Thrash Festival

December 6th, 2010

German thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to headline one additional festival date in Cuautitlan /Mexico, on December 18, 2010. The “Keep the Thrash Festival”, will be second date on the band’s itinerary and will feature some of the bands that have been confirmed for the “Thrash or Die Festival”, in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.

This second date has been added, due to the requests by Mexican fans and on the recommendation of the Mexican promoters who want to expose EXUMER to as many Mexican fans as possible.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “We were surprised and delighted at the same time when the Mexican promoters asked us to add another stop in Mexico. It proves the band’s popularity and cult status in Latin America. We will definitely try to cover as many countries in that region as possible when we return there next year. We have focused on playing live in Europe last and this year, which was important for the band’s re-establishment as a whole. However, North and South America are on our agenda for 2011, and that is where we would like to play the majority of our live shows”.
