Formed back in 2018 in Tucson, Arizona, Exsul are a death metal duo hell-bent on pursuing the most cavernous possible sound. Their second ever release, the «Allegoresis» EP, will be out next month, following the self-titled EP they released last year and which saw subsequent physical edition through Caligari Records in early 2021. As the label describes the upcoming release, it is a “24-minute revelation in six parts,” of “equally gangrenous riffing and vocals, slithering ‘n’ slimy blasts that morph into chest-cavity-crushing doom stomps, songwriting that’s strange and almost improvisational yet fully locked-in, as well as utterly megatron-weight production.” If wordy descriptions are not your thing, just listen to the EP’s first single, the equally wordy «How in the Land of Satin We Saw Hearsay, Who Kept a School of Vouching».
«Allegoresis» is set for release on October 22 through Caligari Records on cassette, cd, and digital formats, whose pre-orders can be found here.
