Southern California thrash metal band, formed in the mid-2000s by then-teenage cousins Conan (vocals/guitar) and Mario Moreno (drums).
Exmortus self-released several demos and EPs before signing with Heavy Artillery Records in 2007. The group’s 2008 debut “In Hatred’s Flame” and 2011 follow-up “Beyond The Fall Of Time” earned praise for their “frighteningly aggressive thrash blended with both death metal and NWOBHM bluster.
In 2013 Exmortus announced their signing to Prosthetic Records and began working on their most mature and best recording to date. Produced by Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate and featuring cover art from Philip Lavere (Kreator, Celtic Frost) the album was released in February 2014 to overwhelming critical attention and stayed on Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal most requested chart for most of the year. The release was followed by a year mainly spent on the road criss-crossing the US on tours alongside Dark Tranquillity; Omnium Gatherum; Lich King; Flotsam & Jetsam; Hatchet/Cellador; Arsis/Allegaeon, culminating with an appearance at Knotfest and a televised performance as the musical guest on a LA KISS arena football game.
