Exumer  


Possessed By Fire was released at the same time as Angel Dust's Into The Dark Past, on the same record label, and not coincidentally that album is the best reference for Exumer's sound -- crunchy Germanic thrash along the lines of Iron Angel, most likely inspired musically by early Slayer. On the second album, the Slayer influence is said to be even more noticeable due to the Araya-esque vocals of Paul Arakari. They broke up soon after the second album, though they did reunite in 2001 to play the Wacken Open Air festival. And, like all good 80's bands, they're back at it, with the two guitarists surrounded by new members intending to tour and record in 2008 or 2009.
