Matt Harvey of Exhumed / Gruesome & Pounder on this week’s show!

Featured

Joining me on this week’s show is none other than Death metal virtuoso: Matt Harvey of Exhumed, Gruesome and his latest band Pounder.

It’s been two years since I caught up with Matt napalmdeathvovivodtour2015new_638for an interview. Last time he was out on the road with Voivod, Napalm death and Iron Reagan on the ‘Through Space and Grind’ Decibel magazine tour, promoting the Exhumed album Gore Metal Redux: A Necrospective. Since then so much has happened musically for Matt that I can barely keep up with the pace.
Back in 2015 I asked Matt about Gruesome which at that point was little more than a plan and a few demos. With the release of Closed Casket and then Hideous the noise around the band quickly blew up. Encapsulating the sound of the Florida Death metal band Death. Gruesome wanted to be tribute to Death using inspiration from each album to create their own albums.

With the debut release of Savage Land in April 21, 2015, no one knew how well the band would go on to do. With a second pressing being made by relapse it was safe to say that the band was going to be producing even more music.
Last year the EP “Dimensions of Horror” gave us yet another slice of what they can do as a band but also it would see the band inspired by the album “Scream Bloody Gore”.
A third EP “Fragments of Psyche” is set to be released on March 31st via relapse records. The EP sees the band take on a different form of Death, considering the album Human but also the appearance of Sean Reinert former Death drummer. Details of a new album have also been announced. Tune in for more…..

The Pounder chapter….

With news on the underground erupting up to the masses about Matt’s new band and the announcement that they are set to 16487573_1261022280633678_4204256853494803421_odebut their first live show at this year’s annual “Frost and Fire” festival in California. I was curious to know more
from Matt about his latest musical creation…Pounder! With a more traditional heavy metal sound/ NWOBHM the band are formulated out of Matt’s love for the genre.
Pulling together long-time friend Alejandro and ex-Angel Witch/ ex- Crowning Glory guitarist Tom Draper the lineup was complete. A brand new track was released 7th March 2017 listen to it below.
