Exmortus Reveal New Album Artwork
The Los Angeles-based, neoclassical metal-inspired extreme shred quartet EXMORTUS will further their claim that "metal is king" in early 2016 with their blistering new album, "Ride Forth." The menacing cover for the new release – featuring oil-painted artwork by the legendary Philip Lawvere (Kreator, Celtic Frost), who previously contributed his epic artistry to the band's critically-acclaimed 2014 label debut, "Slave To The Sword" – can be seen here.
"Ride Forth" was recorded earlier this year with producer Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Immolation) before the group hit the road alongside guitar legend Marty Friedman on his recent North American tour. More details about the new album will be revealed in the coming weeks. Having previously shared stages with the likes of Kyng, Destruction, Dark Tranquillity, Krisiun and Hatchet, EXMORTUS will next appear at Southern California's Winter Slaughter Fest with Flotsam & Jetsam and label mates Holy Grail before kicking off the new year with an intense seven-week jaunt alongside Enforcer, Warbringer and Cauldron. For tickets and dates, please visit www.exmortusmusic.com or see the complete routing below. Lauded as "one of the most important bands to come out of the 21st Century" (Metal Temple), EXMORTUS – who last year starred in a national televsion advertising campaign for Virgin Mobile – recently released a new single called "For The Horde," which can be streamed in the below lyric video. The track is now available on a limited-edition 7" with an exclusive B-side cover of Yngwie Malmsteen's "As Above, So Below" via the Prosthetic Records webshop, and is also available for digital download via Bandcamp, iTunes or Amazon MP3.
