EXUMER confirms appearance at Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse Festival 2013 in Chicago, IL
German thrash metal legends EXUMER have been confirmed to appear at the Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse Festival in Chicago, IL! The fest is scheduled to take place from May 3-4, 2013, and also includes Onslaught, Eldritch, Oz, Omen, and many more. Information and tickets can be found at ragnarokkrmetal.com and facebook.com/RagnarokkrMetal. This appearance will be part of EXUMER's first full U.S. tour in the band's 27 year long history, which is scheduled to take place April/May 2013. Dates and details will be announced as they are confirmed.

EXUMER released their latest album, Fire & Damnation, in April of this year. The album, described by Bloody Disgusting as a "blistering, arcing, glorious moshfest", is the band's third full length release and first since 1987's Rising from the Sea. EXUMER's debut album, Possessed by Fire, holds exalted status in the thrash underground as being one of the best releases of its era. And now, in 2012, EXUMER has returned to the stage, many years wiser, and as electrifying as ever. Fans can watch the video for the title track Fire & Damnation at metalblade.com/exumer.

"Rather simple, yet very catchy, riffing, a mid-paced gallop, some nice bass work, etc., all are dutifully included. However, although rather simple and retro, Exumer know what works and are able to deliver an enjoyable album." About.com

"This isn't your grandfathers high-pitched, treble-heavy thrash attack, but instead a nice and honest blend of the bands current influences with the undeniable metal cred of Mensh and Stein." Zero Tolerance Magazine (UK)

'Fire & Damnation' exceeds Exumer's most classic material by light years, truly capturing the pure essence of the old school era which was sorely needed, but could only be truly duplicated by its originating acts." MetalUnderground.com

EXUMER premiere first official video "Fire & Damnation" exclusively via website of Rock Hard Germany!
German thrash legends EXUMER have premiered the video to the title track of their most recent album, Fire & Damnation. It's the band's first ever official video clip in their 27 year-long history and was entirely filmed and edited in Sao Paulo, Brazil, during EXUMER's South American Damnation tour earlier this summer.

The footage combines the band's explosive live performance with the harsh conditions prevalent in some of Sao Paulo's less affluent and privileged neighborhoods, making it a fast pace assault on the viewer's senses.

Comments vocalist Mem V. Stein: "The idea behind the clip was to showcase the band's intense relationship with our Brazilian fans in a live situation and the disparities that are still present in one of the fastest growing economies in the world. We chose the song Fire & Damnation because its vibe is quite universal, where you don't have look to religion or elsewhere to find damnation here on earth. Ultimately, the clip is a "thank you" to all our fans in South America and around the world as we always try to relate to them in an honest and very real way."

EXUMER to return to Europe in September for the Rock Hard Festival!
German Thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to appear at this year's Rock Hard Festival in Milan/Italy, on September 15, 2012. Also on the bill for the festival are Danish thrashers ARTILLERY, who have just come off the co-headlining "South American Damnation" tour with EXUMER through Argentina, Chile and Brazil. EXUMER's management is now working on on a European installment of the EXUMER/ARTILLERY package and are planning additional dates with both bands throughout Europe in September/October 2012.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: "Our 'South American Damnation' tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn't want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe."

The line-up for the Rock Hard Festival Italia 2012 features among others MARDUK (SE), BULLDOZER (IT), ARTILLERY (DK), EXUMER (DE) and IMMOLATION (US).

EXUMER are:
Mem V. Stein-Vocals
Ray Mensh-Guitars
T. Schiavo-Bass
H.K.-Guitars
Matthias Kassner-Drums

EXUMER recorded their first new album in 25 years with renowned producer Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Therion, Sodom, Moonspell, etc.) at the helm. The 10-track strong, hard-hitting CD Fire & Damnation combines a punishing production with aggressive song writing. EXUMER manages to capture the intensity and feel of the 1980s thrash metal gems and yet sound up to date on their latest output. Fire & Damnation has been released the 6th/10th of April, 2012 as a limited Digipak-CD including three bonus tracks as well as on vinyl!

Vocalist Mem Von Stein comments: "We were devastated when we learned that we were not able to play those shows in Mexico in 2010. It was the first time in our career that we had to cancel a series of live shows in a country that has some of the most loyal and devoted metal fans on the planet. We hope that we can make it up to the fans this time around and are proud to premier a brand new live set that will include songs from our brand new album "Fire and Damnation", for the very first time in Mexico!"

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: "We have been waiting for this moment for a long, long time!

German Thrash Metal legends EXUMER launch 2nd single "Vermin Of The Sky" exclusively via website of Metal Hammer Germany!
Legendary German Thrashers EXUMER are all set for the release of their long anticipated comeback album Fire & Damnation, to be released April 6th/10th via Metal Blade Records in Europe, April, 10th in North America!

Metal Hammer Germany is now exclusively premiering the second single Vermin Of The Sky. Surf over to Metal-Hammer.de to stream the song – HERE!

Comments EXUMER singer Mem V. Stein: "Vermin of the Sky", is a perfect example of how we maintained a very 1980s song writing approach, incorporating catchy hooks and a memorable breakdown that is reminiscent of our work from the 80s. I tried to use strong imagery throughout the record and this track is inspired by the consequences of last year´s earthquake and subsequent tsunami that almost caused a complete fall-out at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. The Vermin of the Sky refers to the radiation and other airborne dangers that we are exposed to, not only in emergency zones, but also in our daily lives."

EXUMER manages to capture the intensity and feel of the 1980s thrash metal gems and yet sound up to date on their latest output.

Fire & Damnation will catapult EXUMER back in the forefront of the international music markets and the following live assaults in 2012; will only further cement the band’s cult status among the ranks of classic thrash metal acts in the world!

Tom Angelripper of SODOM loves the album and comments "This is how "real" thrash is meant to sound. The production is flawless and crystal clear. I'd dare to say that I like this album even better than their older material and think it’s more innovative, even though I am deeply rooted in the old school. I am really surprised! It reminds me a lot of DESTRUCTION and EXODUS, but they've managed to create their own unique style. Thumbs up to you, gents!"

Also make sure to surf over to Metal Blade TV to check out the trailer that features music of Fire & Damnation as well as the stunning front cover! The art direction and production of the clip was executed by German-born artist Cyphers-X, who has worked with bands such as The Very End in the past.

Formed in 1985, by singer/bassist Mem V. Stein and guitarist Ray Mensh, EXUMER went on to release two albums in 1986 (Possessed by Fire), and 1987 (Rising from the Sea), that are regarded as some of the most cult thrash metal releases ever to come out of Germany. EXUMER was also one of the first thrash metal acts to capture exotic, foreign markets like Poland and Brazil, where their albums were domestically released in the 1980s. The subsequent tours that followed those releases secured the band live shows in front of thousands of fans and an unusually large following outside of Germany. Plagued by line-up changes and internal turmoil the band broke up in 1990, and did not perform live, with the exception in 2001 at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival, until 2009.

Mem and Ray decided to re-activate EXUMER in 2008, and the band embarked on their first tour since 1988, where they played 5 shows in April/May of 2009. The "5 Nights of Fire Tour", took the band through Europe (Germany, Holland, Greece), and the USA, where they headlined the "Thrasho de Mayo Festival", in front of 1300 fans in Los Angeles.

EXUMER returned to Europe in spring and the fall of 2010, where the band appeared at Norway's "Inferno Festival", among other stops in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Poland and Bulgaria during their "European Ignition Tour Part I & II".

Watch out for Fire & Damnation to be released the 10th of April, 2012!
