EXMORTUS – Debut New Song

EXMORTUS have unleashed the title track of their new EP, Legions of the Undead, released today on October, 25. You can check it out above.

One can say the sound of steel was injected into Exmortus founder, guitarist and vocalist, Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez at an early age. Born into a family of musicians, he grew up listening to his grandparents sing and play guitar, while his father and uncle both were in rock and metal bands. At just 5 years old, his father took him to watch his uncle play in a death metal band at the Whisky. The experience left quite the lasting impression on him. He soaked in the vibe and the atmosphere and begged for a guitar of his own. He was gifted a beginner Crate guitar and combo amp and once his father saw him stick to practicing, purchased him a solid Gibson SG. It was just a few years later at the age of 12 that Conan formed Exmortus, which would not have lasted had it not been for his parents.

Gonzalez reflects, “My family has been and continue to be very supportive of my endeavors with my music. I don’t think Exmortus would exist if it weren’t for my parents driving the band to our gigs. My dad also acted as our first manager and made sure we played on time and were taken care of at the gigs since we were so young when we started performing.”An LA fixture for well over a decade now, they released their first LP, 2008’s In Hatred’s Flame, when Conan was just 18 years old, but had already paid their dues through their shows and buzzed about demos. The mixture of thrash, death, black and especially neo classical that made them stand out from the LA thrash revival in the 00’s.
