Exhumed: Death Revenge

I doubt anyone will let the instrumental opening track ("Death Revenge Overture") lull them to sleep. This is an Exhumed album after all, not a soothing new release for a quiet afternoon. Besides, that quiet opening is actually a nice little tribute to the likes of John Carpenter's iconic Halloween theme. It's also pretty cool all on its own. Check it out. If you like that, be sure to check out the track "Gravemakers of Edinburgh," a nice instrumental break from the rest of the madness.

This album is signature Exhumed—a crazed and heavy 45 minutes of gore-infused music. It also marks a new development for the band because this album develops a single story from track to track. The story, based on a series of murders in 1820s Scotland, has to do with people committing murder so they could have bodies to sell to anatomists. It's a gruesome tale and Exhumed does it just right. There aren't tons of surprises other than the single concept but if you are diving into an Exhumed album, you might already have a sense of what these guys do best. I really liked "Night Work" and "Death Revenge." I don't know if Exhumed is playing this whole album on their upcoming tour, but it would be cool if they did.
