EXIVIOUS - Exivious [2009]

Fusionmetal - A relatively new and unexplored genre in the world of metal. Exivious, featuring ex-members of legendary US prog band Cynic and Dutch metallers Textures, Exivious isn’t an over the top math metal band and certainly isn’t a loungy jazz combo either. But expect everything in between!

With a jazzfusion backbone Exivious uses freaky metal riffs to decorate their organic eruption of free improvisations and complex rhythms. Guitarist Tymon comments: “We finally managed to transform a vision I had a long time ago into 9 intense and fiery songs. There’s an immense amount of information in there that will definitely take more than one spin in your CD player to comprehend!”

The band will release the album independently to preserve 100% creative freedom. This is not only evident in their music but also in the artwork. Their self titled debut will appear in a limited 1000 numbered copies, each single copy bundled with its own unique artwork.

Genre - Progressive Metal | Jazz | Instrumental
Country - UK
