was formed in 1987 and released its first demo titled
“Descent into Chaos” in July of 1988.
With much praise by the underground its next
venture was titled “Immortality’s End” which was
released in 1989.
This release brought them to black vinyl
through CCG records out of England. This
release also brought the band to another level and was
a turning point for them into major league players
such as Morbid Angel and Death.
Many people in the underground were heavily
following the bands every move.
Exmortis went on to play many live shows with
bands like Prime Evil, Ripping Corpse, Gorephobia, Dr.
Shrinker, Deceased, Internal Void, and countless
the prime of their short lived career Exmortis broke
up under unfortunate circumstances in the late summer
continued to go on with Brian Werking’s version of
Exmortis and released the 7” EP “Fade From
Reality” in 1991 through the now cult Rage Records.
This release brought even more attention to the
band name. Without
a live band to follow it up the name was lost in the
shadows once again until 1993 when Chris Wiser’s
version of Exmortis had put together a line-up,
released a demo titled “Existing to Devour the
Worms” and played some live shows until they broke
1994 Brian Werking was approached by Growing Deaf
Entertainment hailing from The Netherlands asking to
put together a compilation CD.
Brian respectfully used the name Bloodless as
an alias to Exmortis because Chris Wiser had bought
the trademark for the band name.
Needless to say Exmortis (I mean Bloodless)
released 2 songs on that CD along with bands like
Prime Evil, Num Skull, Mortal Dread, Expulsion,
Matricide, Dr. Shrinker, Iron Warrior and Phantasm.
The name Exmortis went dormant again for many
was brought back to life in a sort in 1999 -2000 with
a number of Tribute CD’s.
The two that stood out the most were the
tribute to Morbid Angel in which Exmortis contributed
the song “God of Emptiness” and the tribute to
Death in which Exmortis contributed the song
“Baptized in Blood”.
2010 Brian Werking bought the trademark to the name
Exmortis because it was available and new music was
beginning to churn out again.
Exmortis sprouted much talk in 2011 with its
release of “Unhallowed Grave” in Late January of
2011 which was a compilation of fan favorite songs and
the complete discography re-mastered and released by
Necroharmonic Records in May of 2011.
is the time for the beginning of a new era with the
release of “Resurrection…Book of the Dead”. Being
released by the cult Xtreem Music, it’s bound to be
a CD worth purchasing.
If you remember Exmortis from the early days of
death metal, then you will enjoy this classic
recording set in modern times. The
extreme brutality it presents is undoubtedly some of
their best work to date and will again engrave itself
with a strong hold in the death metal underground
where they plan to stay.
