I was starting to think that the name Exhumed was fitting for the band after a six year hiatus, but they are back with All Guts, No Glory, and probably better for it with their break. They seem to have emerged as a stronger band since the break. This marks their fourth studio album, not counting 2005’s covers collection, Garbage Days Re-regurgitated.
All Guts, No Glory shows Exhumed at their tightest and strongest in a long time. The album is chock full of venomous hatred and anger and each track seems to overpower you more than the last. There is no relenting on this album in any way. Each track is harder and faster than the previous and All Guts, No Glory makes for a great listen if you are looking for something at the cusp of extreme metal. While extreme metal has become pretty watered down these days, Exhumed still sits amongst the forefront of the genre and has reclaimed that seat after their latest release.
