Matt Harvey is a busy man. In 2017, the guitarist/vocalist was involved with three different releases from three different extreme metal bands: an EP from his death homage band Gruesome, an EP from his all-star death/grind project Expulsion, and a full-length entitled Death Revenge from his first band, Exhumed, which definitely benefited from Harvey refining his chops in so many projects. Revenge has all the hack-and-splatter grind Exhumed fans have come to expect over the years, but since Harvey has been emulating Chuck Schuldiner via Gruesome, the scope is much grander than the typical two-minutes-and-change chum-churners Exhumed typically pumps out. The album is conceptual, with an overture and other orchestral interludes throughout. Harvey and Bud Burke’s guitar work is as harmonious and impressive as it is devastating. In a live setting, songs from Revenge will certainly leave you gathering your disembodied appendages once the show is over.
