EXHUMED

Necrocracy

(Relapse)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 9.0

EXHUMED has always been an underrated proposition, this San Jose band known for its ransacking of the CARCASS catalogue to the point of infringement but never entirely being heralded on its own merits. And that’s a shame, because 2000’s ‘Decrepit Crescendo’ and 2003’s ‘The Matter Of The Splatter’ might just be two of extreme metal’s most memorable choruses, both tracks acting as slicing (no pun) prequels to the surgical steel that is Necrocracy. Though Exhumed 2011’s comeback album All Guts, No Glory was an impressive return and amongst the best of that year, Necrocracy is where the band has taken its visceral operating-room-without-anesthetics to new levels of pain and sickness, Necrocracy the type of raging record that happens only once in a career (or twice, if you’re IMPALED). Indeed, Necrocracy’s smartest weapon of choice is its impressive song-writing, these tracks executed with profane ferocity and then surrounded with the type of clinical, Heartwork-esque production that is just appropriateness personified in so many multitudes. In a year that is, literally, overflowing with highlight reel LPs from some of metal’s most important bands, Exhumed has crafted and executed what will surely be amongst the top 1 percent of 2013, Necrocracy setting coins upon eyes and then twisting the scalpel (slowly) to maximum effect. When ‘Dysmorphic’ (the best song of Exhumed’s career), ‘Sickened’ and the eye wink that is ‘The Shape Of Death To Come’ hit their respective peaks with no valleys, one realises that the metal gods have finally seen to it that Exhumed’s legacy will reek of putrefaction in perpetuity.
