PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve seen Exmortus at least a half-dozen times by now and can honestly say that they are one of the more promising acts on the road at this time. Sure, as a writer I might say that sort of thing more often than not but with Exmortus you get a fantastic live experience that brings you right into the mix. If you haven’t seen them yet you are missing out because they bring the classic vibe of Thrashers of old right into the now with fresh musical ideas. I’d give them a shot if this kind of sound is what you are seeking in a band. What do you think of this tour? Have you caught Exmortus before? If so please chime in down below with your thoughts about this one.
