The brand-new Necrocracy (Relapse) is only the second album by this San Jose outfit since they ended a five-year hiatus, and it might fool you into imagining that it’s pretty easy to break up and re-form a highly technical, blastbeat-driven death-metal band—in this case, one with a thirst for gore and an obsession with the walking dead—without missing a single stiff step. Exhumed hasn’t focused much on heavy grooves in the past, but Necrocracy has more than its share: the beginning of “Not Yet Dead Enough” is practically tough-guy hardcore, and the lumbering instrumental “E Pluribus, Mortem” is practically doom metal. But some things never change, and for Exhumed that means sole founding member Matt Harvey scraping his squirrelly, yowling vocals over bat-out-of-hell riffs and machine-gun drumming. And the thick production on Necrocracy makes it even more terrifying when Harvey’s guitar, his bandmates’ subterranean growls, and the double-kick onslaught all pull together. —Kevin Warwick Dying Fetus headlines; Exhumed, Devourment, Abiotic, Rivers of Nihil, and Wounds open.
