German Thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to appear at this year’s Rock Hard Festival in Milan/Italy, on September 15, 2012. Also on the bill for the festival are Danish thrashers ARTILLERY, who have just come off the co-headlining “South American Damnation” tour withEXUMER through Argentina, Chile and Brazil. EXUMER‘s management is now working on on a European installment of the EXUMER/ARTILLERY package and are planning additional dates with both bands throughout Europe in September/October 2012.
Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “Our ‘South American Damnation’ tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn’t want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe.”
The line-up for the Rock Hard Festival Italia 2012 features among others MARDUK (SE), BULLDOZER (IT), ARTILLERY (DK), EXUMER (DE) and IMMOLATION (US).

EXUMER recorded their first new album in 25 years with renowned producer Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Therion, Sodom, Moonspell, etc.) at the helm. The 10-track strong, hard-hitting CD Fire & Damnation combines a punishing production with aggressive song writing. EXUMER manages to capture the intensity and feel of the 1980s thrash metal gems and yet sound up to date on their latest output. Fire & Damnation has been released the 6th/10th of April, 2012 as a limited Digipak-CD including three bonus tracks as well as on vinyl!
