EXHORDER – Bassist Passes Away



tmd

Often cited as one of PANTERA’s main influences, EXHORDER never acheived the commercial success of Anselmo and Crew but metal purists will tell you the influence shouldn’t be dismissed as metal folklore.

Defining what many call the “Thrash / Groove” metal sound, EXHORDER’s southern roots garnered a strong “Pre-Pantera” underground following and recently the band had come back together to begin a new assault on the music scene.

While details remain unavailable, Exhorder appears to have suffered a devastating setback in the passing of bass player Frankie Sparcello recently and so far the future remains uncertain.

For those unfamiliar, it’s worth a look back at the bands history and sound…for those who know, nothing more need be said.

Our condolences to Bobbi Sparcello, Frankie’s Chil...

Speaking on the album, band frontman Karl Simon offered the following:

“No heroics this time, no swords; no sorcery. No fantasy. That stuff is OK; it’s fun…whatever, but we don’t feel it these days. This one is all about others let you down almost as much as you let yourself down. It might not make sense to you, but then you probably only have the last two records as a digital download. That, or your world is summed up by someone else’s soundbite.”

01 – “Bastards Born”
