A hard-hitting Bay Area thrash metal quartet who incorporate elements of progressive, death, neo-classical, and twin-guitar-based power metal into their already mighty aural attack, Exmortus are the missing link between Testament, Children of Bodom, Manowar, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Co-founded in 2002 by Conan (vocals, guitar) and Mario Moreno (drums) in the Southern California town of Whittier, the band issued a series of demos and EPs before inking a deal with Heavy Artillery Records in 2007. The following year saw the release of their debut long-player, In Hatred's Flame, followed by their sophomore full-length, Beyond the Fall of Time, in 2011. Two years later Exmortus inked a deal with Prosthetic Records and headed into the studio with producer Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Warbringer, Suffocation) to record their third studio album, Slave to the Sword, which came out in 2014. Heavy touring alongside fellow decibel crushers like Flotsam and Jetsam and Dark Tranquillity followed, and in 2016 Exmortus issued their fourth album, working once again with Ohren, the punishing Ride Forth. ~ James Christopher Monger
