My history with Exhumed goes back almost 20 years, to the release of their second album Slaughtercult. Along with Nasum, Soilent Green, and other Relapse Records signees of the late Nineties, the band can be credited with grindcore's resurgence at the turn of the millennium, as well as the proliferation of gore-grind (or as Exhumed call it, "gore fucking metal").

I spoke with Matt about Exhumed's upcoming seventh album Horror, how Sebastian Phillips (of Noisem) joined the band, and the ways that the B-horror video culture of the Eighties and Nineties influenced them. We also discussed Exhumed's legacy, and why it's the project that Matt keeps returning to.

My thanks to Matt for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
