Exmortus - Beyond the Fall of Time
Exmortus plays an technical thrash/death metal hybrid. As the Invisble Oranges article 2011 In Review: The Year in Tech-Death states Beyond the Fall of Time features some of the finest soloing in all of metal, but marries it to riffs that would do any ’80s thrash band proud.
While two guitarists leaves no string unbent, you get a solid set of songs too, especially on the first half of the album. Also, the gruff barking vocals (and occasional falsetto screams) helps give the album some traditional heavy metal swagger. Check it out, this is metal that is badass and fun.
Earache has acquired Heavy Artillery Records (news item from Blabbermouth) and subsequently killed the Heavy Artillery Bandcamp.
