EXOCRINE have blending ultra technical and extraordinarily rapid death metal with philosophical musings for quite some time now. The French band released their first album back in 2015. But their new album marks a new chapter. While still choked-full of eerie, dissonant finger-taps and enough blast beats to blow out your eardrums, ‘Legend’ rages from within.
Technical Death Metal - France
With the release of the the Bordeaux-based group EXOCRINE’s first album ‘Unreal Existence’ in 2015, the band found their way into the world of technical deathmetal. The release of ‘The Hybrid Suns’ in 2022 is their career-defining fifth record, a concept album studying the voyage between life and death, and showcases a jaw-dropping level of musicianship. Continuing to push the boundaries of extremity and precision playing, Exocrine are the bridge between the ferocity of ARCHSPIRE and CRYPTOPSY, and the potent progressive leanings of OBSCURA and GOROD.
The band comments: “‘The Hybrid Suns’ is the first titular offering, introducing a new concept with a complex narrative frame to set the tone for the forthcoming album. As usual we have paid particular attention on the technical aspects and the speed, however this time we’ve pushed harder on the epic side of things to create a more grandiose sound!”
