EXHORDER Issue Lyric Video For New Track ‘Hallowed Sound’
August 23rd, 2019

New Orleans, Louisiana-based thrash metal group Exhorder have released an official lyric video for the track ‘Hallowed Sound’, which can be viewed below.

Speaking about the song, guitarist Vinnie La Bella said: “‘Hallowed Sound’ is one that keeps in the tradition of The Law era with some new twists and turns. Mid-tempo / slow, heavy grooves with a mean-yet-soulful Kyle Thomas singing about our beloved NOLA music history, and future!”

Exhorder issue third full-length studio album Mourn The Southern Skies on September 20th, 2019 through Nuclear Blast. The outing is the band’s first full-length record in 27 years.

LaBella commented: “Twenty-seven years? Man, that’s a big number! A lot has transpired over the course of such an extended amount of time, and this record touches on it all. There is material on this record that is literally 27 years old along with material that was written just six months ago, and everything in between.

“There are truly no words to express the emotions which are connected with this moment. And that’s pretty convenient because I prefer to do my talking in the ring / stage anyway. But the people who really made this what it is cannot go without mention: my incredible band mates; Simon and krewe at AISA Management; all at Nuclear Blast Records; and Duane Simoneaux at OCD Recording. Jens Bogren was an unquestionable genius! So honoured to have him on this.

“This is, without a doubt for the first time in our career, the album we intended to give you. Production, sound, art, it’s all there with no compromise! I’m eternally grateful for all who helped make it happen. And to all that have waited for it, prayed for it, begged for it, or even dreaded this moment, much love and I’ll see you in the ‘ring!’”

A third official video trailer for the outing has been released and can also be viewed below. In the latest clip, vocalist Kyle Thomas and guitarist Vinnie LaBella discuss what it’s like for the band to come back in this new era of technology and music.
