San Jose’s EXHUMED have blazed a path for modern-sensible old-school death metal since the band’s 1991 formation, when the band’s founder and sole remaining member Matt Harvey was a tender 15 years old. EXHUMED spent much of the ensuing decade hacking their way through numerous line-ups, demos, split CDs, and EPs. In 1998, the band finally released their debut album, the genre-(re)defining and critic-repulsing Gore Metal . The album crystallized the sound forged with their l994 demo (old-school death metal meets full-on grindcore with the spirit of thrash) and first split CD ( Horrific Expulsion of Gore and 1996’s In the Name of Gore respectively); the band envisioned the three releases as a trilogy of sorts.Touring in support of Gore Metal brought the enlistment of then-bassist (now lead guitarist) Bud Burke to complete the line-up for the band’s long-awaited first US tour and festival appearances after Ross Sewage’s departure in 1999. EXHUMED upped the ante with their go-for-the-throat sophomore record Slaughtercult in 2001. The album blatantly blended the band’s brutal cult-thrash influences into its sonic meat-grinder. The band evolved further with their third album, 2003’s Anatomy is Destiny, with more sophisticated arrangements, production and instrumentation. After touring heavily in support of Anatomy... and the band’s massive 2CD compilation Platters ofSplatter , EXHUMED realigned theirpersonnel ,and released an album of cover versions called Garbage Daze Re-Regurgitated in 2005. Shortly thereafter, the band was put on indefinite hiatus. After six years away from the scene and numerous other projects, Harvey, former members guitarist Wes Caley, and bassist / vocalist Leon del Muerte teamed up with drummer Danny Walker (Intronaut, Murder Construct , Phobia) for their acclaimed comeback album, All Guts, No Glory in 2011. EXHUMED replaced longtime guitar player Bud Burke with Sebastian Phillips (Noisem) in 2018 as Burke was unable to keep up with the band's rigorous tour schedule. Phillips' aggressive six-string attack slotted perfectly into the band's framework and added a new level of intensity to their gore-soaked stage show. https://www.facebook.com/ExhumedOfficial/

Gatecreeper was formed in September of 2013 with members originating from both Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona. After a debut 4-song EP a series of splits, the band signed to Relapse Records which resulted in the release of their debut full-length Sonoran Depravation on October 7th 2016. The band has since toured with Nails, Pallbearer, Code Orange, Skeletonwitch and more. Gatecreeper play crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising, with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower. https://www.facebook.com/gatecreeper/
