Cult U.S. death metallers EXMORTIS have inked a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of a new EP and a full-length album.
Due on December 20, the mini-CD, titled “Resurrection… Book of the Dead”, was recorded by Brian Werking during September/ October 2011 at Shockwerks Audio in Tampa, Florida. It was then mixed and mastered by Javier Fernández at Room 101 Studios in Guadalajara, Spain in October/ November.
A press release from Xtreem Music states: “If you remember EXMORTIS from the early days of death metal, then you will enjoy this classic recording set in modern times. The extreme brutality it presents is undoubtedly some of their best work to date and will again engrave itself with a strong hold in the death metal underground where they plan to stay.
“EXMORTIS was originally inspired by such bands as DESTRUCTION, KREATOR, SLAYER, POSSESSED and the list goes on. If it’s old, then that’s what EXMORTIS represents. Even to this day EXMORTIS is and will always be an underground sensation.”

01. Creation (intro)
02. Book Of The Dead
03. The Slaughter Begins
