Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway, Owner/Chief Editor

Long running, no-apology, savage multinational metallers EXUMER announce the nearing arrival of ‘Hostile Defiance’, their fifth full-length, studio album.

Set to arrive April 5th from Metal Blade Records, ‘Hostile Defiance‘ was produced by Dennis Koehne (Sodom, Melechesh) and tracked within studios in Dortmund and Frankfurt in Germany. For a taste of what one might expect with the upcoming album release, the band’s official video for the title track is streaming below.

Vocalist Mem Von Stein had this to say about these recent developments:

We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety. 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.

Our goal is simple: to further establish the band as one of the main German thrash metal acts that began in the 1980’s and are now carrying the torch into the 2020’s.

Check out the “Hostile Defiance” video below, along with the album details. Pre-order for the album in varying formats can be found HERE.
