Swallow Your Soul

EXMORTUS Debuts ‘Evil Dead’ Inspired ‘Swallow Your Soul!’

Los Angeles-based EXMORTUS, hot off the success of their recent releases “Slave To The Sword” (2014), “Ride Forth” (2016), and “Sound Of Steel” (2018), are back with an all new EP. “Legions of the Undead” hits store shelves this October via the band’s own record label, Exmortus Music, and M-Theory Audio. The five-track release features a Halloween/horror theme and two new original songs. One of those songs was inspired by Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. It’s called “Swallow Your Soul!”

Details From The EXMORTUS Press Release

“Legions Of The Undead” marks the first EXMORTUS release featuring the lineup – founding guitarist/vocalist Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez, guitarist Chase Becker (also of Warbringer), bassist Cody Nunez and drummer Adrian Aguilar – that has logged numerous miles on the road together over the past two years with the likes of Obituary, Venom Inc., Sabaton, Kreator, Allegaeon, Hatchet, Homewrecker and The Absence.

The EP, which will be released on CD, digital and limited-edition green slime-colored vinyl, also includes covers of three well-known instrumentals performed in the band’s inimitable neoclassical metal style – Danny Elfman’s “Beetlejuice” theme, Bernard Hermann’s iconic “Psycho Theme” and 19th Century Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky’s haunting “Night On Bald Mountain.”

The group – whose most recent performance was alongside Exodus at the legendary thrash group’s sold-out “Bonded By Con” concert during San Diego’s recent Comic-Con – will support another iconic Bay Area act this fall, when they team up with Death Angel for a five-week tour across the U.S. and Canada. See below for the complete itinerary.
