Exumer came into being in 1986, with their debut album ‘Possessed by Fire’. The band broke up for over twenty years, and reformed in 2008. This album is their second since reforming. There is a classic thrash sound to this album that once disappoint fans. The songwriting is great, full of catchy riffs and refrains perfect for headbanging. ‘Catatonic’ and ‘Death Factory’ are two fine examples. My only disappointment in songs is their cover of Pentagram ‘ s ‘Forever My Queen’. This cover is very weak and very inferior to the original. Overall, this is a great classic thrash album.
