Magnolia Thunderpussy

Exumer has never been in a rush. The influential German thrash veterans haven't taken a typical career approach to being a band since they reformed in 2008. Still, Possessed by Fire (1986) and Rising from the Sea (1987) stand as highly-heralded triumphs of the genre, particularly the former. Upon reemerging from hibernation, Exumer released their third full-length worldwide on Metal Blade Records. Fire & Damnation was exceptionally well received, and the band performed a series of shows over the course of the following years across North America, Europe, and South America. Where Exumer goes, die hard thrash fans surely follow. It should come as no surprise that a band as storied and experience as Exumer would want to make the claim that this is their pinnacle, thus far, as a band. Though with the time they are able to take, and with not being held firm to a more rigorous touring schedule and two year album cycle, they have the luxury of time and practically no outside pressure to write the albums they want to write. Stein explains, "The Raging Tides has the same explosive quality to it, and is a huge step forward from our last album, since we have felt and operated more like a fully working band for the past seven years. The songs are more precise, the delivery a lot more sophisticated than on Fire & Damnation - this is ultimate Exumer experience."
