Former guitarist and singer Roland Johannsson has decided to leave The Unguided, and now the band has brought on new frontman Jonathan Thorpenberg.

After having released a 2-track EP in December of last year, it’s time to get ready for the full-length studio album to follow. Please welcome “And The Battle Royale” – scheduled for a worldwide November 10th 2017 release via Napalm Records!

Richard Sjunnesson states: “We’ve without doubt sacrificed our five souls into this one.

Everyone indeed brought their absolute A-game on this record and Jonathan over performed in every possible way whilst also bringing something completely new to the table. A table which much urgently needed it I’d say. Come November and the battle royale will make or break you!”

Exhumed Unveils New Album “Death Revenge”

Lock the mausoleum doors and chain up the cemetery gates, because the long-standing gore metal maniacs from Exhumed re-emerge with disgusting new album “Death Revenge.”

The band’s sixth full-length is a concept album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. “Death Revenge” takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery.

Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), “Death Revenge” takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths. The cover illustration is by Orion Landau with interior illustrations by Lucas Ruggieri.

Frontman Matt Harvey comments: “We’re very excited to see this record come out. It’s been a long time since we’ve fucked up your stereos! I think this record has a darker vibe than the last two, with a pretty gnarly tale of grave-robbery, dissection, murder, and all sorts of general skullduggery. We dig it and we hope you filthy animals will too.”

New album “Death Revenge” is set for release on October 13th on CD, LP, deluxe LP with cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. The track listing is as follows:

1. Death Revenge Overture
2. Defenders Of The Grave
3. Lifeless
4. Dead End
5. Night Work
6. Unspeakable
7. Gravemakers Of Edinburgh
8. The Harrowing
9. A Funeral Party
10. The Anatomy Act Of 1832
11. Incarnadined Hands
12. Death Revenge
13. Death Revenge Underture (Bonus Track)
14. A Lesson In Violence (Bonus Track)
