Southern California shredders EXMORTUS
have released a new seven-inch single, "Immortality Made Flesh"
. The A-side title track is a new song from the group's forthcoming Prosthetic
debut, due out in February; the B-side is a blistering cover of JUDAS PRIEST
's "Freewheel Burning"
exclusive to this release. Limited to 300 copies, the single — the Cyril Van Der Haegen
-designed cover artwork for which appears below — can be ordered now at this location. You can also stream/download the title track via Bandcamp
or check out some intimate, behind-the-scenes jam room footage of the group performing the song below.
Last weekend, EXMORTUS
— whose invigorating twin-guitar mix of neoclassical shred, progressive death, classic thrash and traditional heavy metal has earned the group a devoted following in the Western U.S. — kicked off the three-week "Death Upon The West"
tour with HATCHET
. Following that, the band will play the Thrashgiving
festival in Las Vegas and a one-off in Los Angeles before returning to the road in early 2014 alongside DARK TRANQUILLITY
and OMNIUM GATHERUM
Co-founded a decade ago by then-teenage cousins Conan
(vocals/guitar) and Mario Moreno
released several demos and EPs indepdenently before signing with Heavy Artillery Records
in 2007. The group's 2008 debut, "In Hatred's Flame"
, and 2011 follow-up, "Beyond The Fall Of Time"
, earned praise for their "frighteningly aggressive thrash blended with both death metal and NWOBHM bluster," and their exuberant, shred-heavy live performances can convert even the most jaded heshers into enthusiastic headbangers.
