Review - 'Exhumed: Gore Metal: A Necrospective'

Exhumed - Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015 (2015)

Relapse Records 

Review by Trevor Proctor

We should all be pretty familiar with the grind/death machine that is Exhumed. Formed in 1990 when guitarist and vocalist Matt Harvey was a mere fifteen years old, they spent the ensuing years recording and releasing a number of demos, split releases and Eps. Their focus has always been on grinding death metal with an emphasis on old school, drawing influence from the likes of Carcass, Repulsion, Terrorizer and earlier releases from Entombed.
