Exumer launches new track, “Catatonic”, via DecibelMagazine.com

- January 20th, 2016 –

Ready to unleash their fourth album, The Raging Tides, on January 29th worldwide via Metal Blade Records, German thrash metallers Exumer have launched a new track, “Catatonic“, today! Head over to DecibelMagazine.com for the stream: decibelmagazine.com.

Vocalist Mem von Stein comments: “We wanted to display the entire scope of our thrash and traditional heavy metal roots on the new album. ‘Catatonic’ is a prime example when we used a mid-tempo track, on an otherwise fast-paced record, to sonically create some variety without losing any momentum.”

For another preview of The Raging Tides, please visit metalblade.com/exumer, where fans can stream the album’s title track and pre-order the record in various formats. The second single, “Sinister Souls“, can also be streamed here: soundcloud.com

Recorded with producer/engineer Waldemar Soychta at Waldstreet Sound in Dortmund, Germany, The Raging Tides is a deliberate and violent thrash attack that stays true to the band’s 30 year legacy. Conceptually and lyrically, vocalist Mem V. Stein has based the bulk of the record around human suffering – specifically “caused by torture or other means for political, religious, or personal gain for the individuals/organizations who inflict the pain,” Stein asserts. Inspired by a wide range of books and articles, the title of the album itself, according to Stein, “represents the ebb and flow of human misery and despair around the globe.”
