EXMORTUS Bring Their Neoclassical Thrash Metal On The Road With Headline Shows This July

The sound of steel will ring out loud and proud once again this summer, as EXMORTUS return to the west coast this July for a series of headline shows. Hot of the heels of a couple of sold-out performances supporting EvilDead and the reformed Bonded By Blood in Pomona, and then Vio-Lence in Oakland the past two weekends the death/thrash/shred quartet don’t want to stop and in addition to a couple dates previously announced supporting death metal legends Massacre in early July Exmortus have extended their run with a slew of their own shows all over the west coast.

Exmortus are bringing out a couple of fine support acts of their own for these dates – Bay Area thrashers Hatriot (whose fourth album, “The Vale of Shadows,” releases July 22nd on Massacre Records and features two sons of Exodus frontman Steve Souza) and Portland’s dark power metallers Silver Talon who are touring in support of “Decadence and Decay,” their praised debut full-length on M-Theory Audio and who recently performed at Vancouver’s Hyperspace Festival and Chicago’s Legions of Metal.

“We’re anxious to get back out and continue our traditional summer headlining run,” announces singer/guitarist Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez. “We just got out of the studio and we’re psyched to hit the road and bring a couple of great new bands with us.”

Exmortus recently finished recording, once again with Zack Ohren handling production and mix, for a yet-to-be named new label. It’s been some time since the band released a special Halloween-themed EP, “Legions of the Undead,” in Oct. 2019 and fans are clamoring for new music. The group hopes to have the first single out to coincide with these July shows.

Founded by guitarist Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez when he was just 12 years old, EXMORTUS released their debut album, “In Hatred’s Flame,” via Heavy Artillery in 2008. After gaining additional acclaim with their 2011 sophomore effort “Beyond The Fall Of Time,” the group signed a three-album deal with Prosthetic Records in 2013. In support of that acclaimed trilogy of releases (2014’s “Slave To The Sword,” 2016’s “Ride Forth” and 2018’s “The Sound Of Steel”), the band toured alongside some of metal’s biggest names, such as Amon Amarth, Death Angel, Abbath, Marty Friedman, Obituary and Dark Tranquillity, earning extensive praise along the way for their live power, prowess and proficiency.
