At the tail end of August, Exhumed announced a brand new record and shared a new single! While their new album To The Dead will be arriving next month, the band have already released a second song off the record, that song titled “Carbonized.” Accompanied with the song is a music video that plays into the idea of “Reefer Madness.”

The music video features a bunch of young folks getting high (with disastrous results taking place); this appears to be a nod to the 1936 American propaganda film about drugs titled Reefer Madness). Speaking to the new album, Exhumed frontman Matt Harvey shares the following:

“For me, the most exciting thing about To The Dead is that it’s the most collaborative record we’ve ever done. Our own six-string slime-slinger Sebastian Phillips disgorged the riffs for ‘Carbonized,’ the disgusting little ditty we’ve selected as the second single from the album. Then Ross, Mike, and I worked out the lyrics, so this ode to cerebral incineration is truly a group effort — which takes some of the blame away from yours truly if you guys hate it! For the optimal carbonizing experience, turn out the lights, crank up the volume, spark a bowl, and this tune will vaporize what’s left of your senses and sanity!”

He later adds, “To The Dead is a destination. A rotting world populated by the grotesquely twisted truths of our waking world and the decaying fallout of our most deranged ambitions. But it’s also a title that evokes a celebration of, and an invitation into, the gore-soaked world of EXHUMED.”
