Deron Baker Just when I thought my death plate was full, Exhumation plopped itself on top of the heap, right on top of my chicken parm.

The riffs and song structure of this album are just too good to dismiss it as "another standard death metal album." The songs are oldschool style Death metal, with slight thrash tendencies and even a hint of black metal. Songs are fast paced with pummeling riffs, yet the change-ups in tempo from time to time keep it interesting.

    Death Metal by EXHUMATION deserves the term „classical“: It is sinister, clanging and evil. The Eastern Asian roots are undeniable, but now the music is darker than ever before.

    The album offers an improved sound quality and reminds the listener of the legendary MAYHEM line-up, early DEICIDE or the occult songs of UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN.
    Modern metal tends to go ways not everyone is fond of. But change is not always equal to more progression or mixing of genres.

    Now EXHUMATION’s second opus is ready, and it is colder and more pitiless than the first release. Still it relies on its Eastern Asian roots; but now they are buried underneath a thick layer of classical Death Metal which has an uncanny resemblance to the Black Metal of the late 80s.

    (D)
    Der Death Metal von EXHUMATION kann im besten Sinne als klassisch bezeichnet werden: Finster, hallend und böse. Die ostasiatische Herkunft bleibt unleugbar, aber die Musik ist noch eine Klasse dunkler geworden.
    Das Album mit verbesserter Klangqualität erinnert in ihrem Wahn an MAYHEM in Bestbesetzung, und in Ausführung und Okkultismus an frühe DEICIDE und UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN.

    Entwicklungen im modernen Metal kann man mögen, muss man aber nicht. Doch: Veränderung muss nicht zwangsweise mehr Progression oder Genremixerei bedeuten.
    EXHUMATION legen nun ihr zweites Release vor; kälter und erbarmungsloser als der Vorgänger. Immer noch kann man die fernöstlichen Wurzeln spüren, doch liegen sie tief begraben unter einer massiven Schicht klassischen Death Metals, der seine Verwandtschaft zum Black Metal der späten 80er nicht leugnen kann.

Lone wandering the I, in the secret riding through the streams, Streams of death! To flow, to know, set the sails 'Tis the set of a soul In the deep heart's core Decides the goal by its soul Against winds and chaos streams Dark-heaving, to and fro As above - so below, with love and joy stirs Haunted moves, across the waves of fire Lone wandering, but not lost! Into the empty world, yet wide There's no life here, Only the death whose dwelt in silence O Eternal peace Swallow me (yes swallow me) as a flood; Farewell light, Endless path No exit nor return! Light fading, light dying Desolate ways Seems a curse but pleasure (yes pleasure to me) Bewitched am I by its dark 'Tis the soul wanders through space and time As I am the path of the pathless Pave every locked doors As I am the mind of the mindless Boundless, endless I'm set free Let it be! Lone wandering, but not lost! My time has come; Twilight for dawn Down for rise Low for high The evils rise; For evermore No prayer, no question No wish, need nothing I am ready now
2.
We, dark in light! Our steps are not upon thy paths These dark steps are pure and cold We are moving grave! These souls who thirst for blood As we left certain left path as our oath With head high, heavy hordes One highway to hell, we ride These hearts who sunk in nothing Of sacred void of a link Eyes watchful, ears forward One highway, never look back, we ride! Oaths made in pain! No turning back! 'Twas a pleasing fear Like a wild beast, We're content to go! Our vessel, bounding higher into the monstrous world To reach a land unknown And we shall strike all who behold Alas! What horrid visions haunt us! As we gaze upon the hordes! Ride! Ride to meet our fate! Death! Death is the key and sets all free
3.
Welcome joy and feast Unseen force and the beast Gather to be one, in my fist Evil, with thou I mean to live! Evil, be thou my guide! Tonight is the night A thousand souls of hunger, Will gather tonight So come, come hither! Let me tell ye; The man and the rest! Behold and hearken; This horror will grow wild In earth's dark womb, Man had to know Man had not to bow Thine eyes shall see the light! Only if ye come with open heart! In the dead of night Arise! By the breath of death Join me in this rite Dance and trance, the evil's dance Lawless! I wasn't born to bow nor follow Behold darkness, the path reveals now, open wide!

Rising from the ground Crawling through the darkness Swinging slow with heavy roar Wandering in the endless shore Soul apart, naked night, unknown call Heart of night, eyes of lust Lead you to the light Can you hear the call? The cruel call O human child Can you hear the thunder? The harsh thunder O barren child Can you feel the taste? The tongue of darkness Can you feel the heat? The skin of flame Now you drowned in joy Burned by raging lust Lulled by death In a sullen void sunk deep, you slept Slept deep as one Obsessed by nothingness Possessed by madness Touched by hate (touched by its hate) I heard your selfish prayer I saw you like a pallid branch It's time, come away child There is a pleasure in a web of emptiness Look at me, look O helpless child Look at my eyes, the eyes of horror Now you're under my spell Totally lost, totally dead Within your heart O child, night eternal!

When sun in bed, as the darkness embraced the sky All went lame, deaf, and blind Borrow my eyes, wide eyes, look at life Grief upon grief, alive upon alive Borrow my ears, with this you mean to hear All is but death and alike Of purity, of place, where innocence ever lived When life thus to death, blinded by living god I dread not! Love or hate! to me alike, it deals eternal woe For you my foe In the end you'll know Nothing remains but woe Death is the only way! I fear not! from day night and rest With living will, my heart is prepared My heart is light, and ready in such voyage! To the glorious of journey In the yonder gates I shall ascend; Which way? Which way I ascend is hell; Myself am hell! Total hell! I hid myself from the world's wide eye For I feel nothing All is but death and alike Graveyard alike And for you my foe In the end you'll know Nothing remains but woe Death is the only way!
7.
Wandering beneath the starless skies Nothing as the darkness embraced my eyes Yet the flaming heart will set the path on fire Underneath the starless skies Horrid vision, against mortal desire Rebellion, unnatural force Desecration, glorious pleasure A fist for the holy one, now it's time to die Lawless Madness Ruthless Darkness Behold! Death flyin' upon the skies So high and shine, thus burns your eyes In the land of a thousand curse I'll pleased to see you die A fist for the holy one, now it's time to say bye I was cursed by the hate Determinants of my own fate Infringing the law - find a way Through the labyrinth of fear I'll penetrate deeper into the heart of fire Lawless Madness Ruthless Darkness No burden nor ease Death and I so bound Let's set the path aflame! Fire, higher, fire! Pave my way, ignite it! open the unseen path, mine eyes so shined It's unknown direction, fire of will, labyrinth of fire!

Come forth! As children of the night, go forth My heart throbs so wild All day, all night In the heart's of hungry dark Ere the dying hours begin Ere I grasps its burning silence O for thou I gave my youth O for thou I carry my youth From nothing, to nothing, of nothing For the heart whose built in flames For the heart whose forever aflame As an iron of the night side Here I come, careless child, in every sight To seek, to find, to dig, to dive, To breathe the death my love Now hearken! Not for the world's gold this ride, but journey, timeless journey And thus I've promise to keep, Time to time, miles to miles Iron heart! As in the land of dark and wide I walk unseen Wander off by myself, As the mask of the night and the ashen morning sky 'Tis the pure aim To view all life; With the burning eyes of a nature child From the edge of doom to the heart of the wild
9.
By the blackest midnight Appear as spreader of woe Three iron strike through the night Into the wild! By thy name! Come forth to play Let hymn of appear Call of the beast! Violently awake! The hidden soul of wrath Towards the burning meadow Invoke thy aid to our hideous song Horrid strides yet decided low Let there be dark! Upright heart O thou art ruler of the night That made the hideous roar Comes to pluck their soul harsh and crude Hymn of death! For the final hour Swing thy fatal weapon Pluck their soul Hungry scythe!
