EXUMER
FIRE AND DAMNATION
METAL BLADE

Exumer returns after a 25-year hiatus with the 10-track offering FIRE AND DAMNATION. This German-based thrash metal squad makes up for its two decades plus absence from releasing a studio album with a straightforward and unrelenting thrash metal presentation laden with snarling vocals, galloping guitars galore, and a colossal bass and drum crunch (“The Weakest Limb”). No surprises here, just a supply of sturdy songwriting and a steady stream of speedy licks and rhythms that assist Exumer to come back from inactivity with a mighty roar (“Fire and Damnation”) that skillfully blends elements of fellow countrymen Kreator, Sodom, and Destruction with Bay Area notables Exodus (“Devil Chaser”) and Testament. -Mike SOS
