||German thrash metal veterans Exumer have issued the following update on their Myspace blog:
"We will be recording and mixing our first album release in 24 years, in Dortmund/Germany over the summer. We have recruited legendary producer, Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Enemy Of The Sun, Voodoocult, Therion, Tiamat, Moonspell etc.), to produce what will be the third Exumer album to date. We will enter the studio in early June and remain there throughout July to complete the recording/mixing process. We have commissioned Baptiste Treton, a French born artist who resides in Vietnam, to illustrate the new album's artwork."
Vocalist Mem commented: "We basically took off from playing live for this entire year in order to concentrate solely on writing, recording and mixing this record. Waldemar was the most logical choice for us in regards to producing this very important album. We heard what he had done with the last Sodom album and we all agreed that he is capable of preserving the spirit of a 1980s thrash band but still make them sound relevant today. That is exactly what we envision for Exumer. We became quite confident that we will achieve this objective after meeting Waldemar earlier this year and trust his intuition as a producer, songwriter and musician, as well as his ability to push Exumer's envelope when it is necessary."
The band added: "We began negotiating with several labels to release their upcoming CD and will announce the album's title once a deal is closed."
