Over the last week, I’ve been listening to Exumer‘s Possessed by Fire. I felt they had an impressive début with a strong starting trio of songs, (the title track, Destructive Solution and Fallen Saint), though my favourite was track #8, Journey to Oblivion. It seems the band didn’t have the tenacity of Kreator; after their second album, they went into hibernation, not releasing a full-length studio album for a quarter-century. That’s a pity, since they definitely had the potential to become one of Europe’s top thrash bands.
Also heard Protector‘s splendid Apocalyptic Revelations on their Golem album.
