Exumer launches new single, “Raptor”

– March 5th, 2019 –

On April 5th, legendary multinational thrash metallers Exumer will release their fifth full-length, Hostile Defiance, via Metal Blade Records.

Hostile Defiance is exactly what its title suggests. A 42-minute full on attack, the thrash faction hold nothing back as they unleash hell as only they can, yet with more variety and dynamics than ever before. “We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety,” states vocalist Mem Von Stein. “We are a lot braver trying to create an up to date and relevant sound that can easily stand alone in today’s thrash landscape without sounding trite or a throwback, and we’re challenging the listener not to get too comfortable with one specific feel, tempo or pace.”

For a preview of the album, the new single, “Raptor”, can be heard at:

The video for the previously released track, “Hostile Defiance”, can be seen at: The clip was created by renowned cover artist Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Voivod, etc.), who also made the album artwork and layout for Hostile Defiance.

Fans can pre-order Hostile Defiance at in the following formats:

Hostile Defiance marks Exumer‘s third time working with producer Dennis Koehne (Sodom, Melechesh). Tracking the album in studios in Dortmund and Frankfurt, the sessions were marked with “super positive vibes all around with a strong, driven work ethic to create an optimal product.” The band plans to tour the record hard, and will be hitting the road in Europe when the album drops, and from that point onward, they will be visiting as many countries as possible. “Our goal is simple: to further establish the band as one of the main German thrash metal acts that began in the 1980s and are now carrying the torch into the 2020s.”

Monument Of Misanthropy Looking For New Guitarist(s) & Bassist

European brutal death metal stronghold Monument Of Misanthropy announce they are looking for new guitarists and a new bass player. European musicians with their own material are being preferred, but it is NOT mandatory. Get in touch with the band via this email: or their official bandpage on FB: Monument Of Misanthropy Official Band Site

Explains the inventor of the Monument Of Misanthropy brand-imprint, band founder and frontman George “Misanthrope” Wilfinger:

“Neither will I be using any empty bullshit phrases like “due to artistic differences”, “because of unsurmountable personal differences”, nor will I be washing Monument Of Misanthropy’s dirty laundry in public. Fact is that after the last very successful years, three awesome European tours and two acclaimed releases, for me it feels like I should carry on with a new team of guitarists and bass player. Artists who still have the fire inside to go beyond their limits and with an iron will to produce a brutal new death metal album for Monument Of Misanthropy with me and one of the best drummers out there in the brutal death metal world. People willing to play festivals, to go on tours, even if the fee won’t buy them a Porsche. Musicians who live for the cause. Just sincere, motivated musicians willing to go the extra mile, that’s all I’m asking for. Musicians from Europe and with their own material are preferred, but it’s NO must.”

Monument Of Misanthropy have been recording and touring with drum-gods Romain Goulon (ex-Necrophagist, ex-Benighted), Simon Schilling (ex-Belphegor) and David Diepold (ex-Benighted, Cognizance).

To give you an impression what is awaiting you being one of their new members, the band include their recent touring history below:
