I’m suspicious of the concept of an Exhorder reunion album, although Alice in Chains just proved that, yes, a reunited band can record again and live up to expectations. So maybe I should be less cynical. I mean, I’m not going to be less cynical, I’m just admitting that one time outta ten, my cynicism is wrong. Sometimes.
One thing I’m not so cynical about: the reunited Exhorder’s ability to kick major ass live. Blabbermouth tells us that the band has just scheduled their first comeback gig, to take place November 14 at Southport Hall in Jefferson, Louisiana. It’ll be the band’s first show in eight years.
I’ve never been to Louisiana, but believe you me when I say I am now considering taking a vacation to Jefferson. I’m also hoping more dates will soon follow so I can take a vacation someplace warm where girls walk around in next to nothing instead, but, hey, whatever it takes to see Exhorder…
Here’s Exhorder doing “Slaughter in the Vatican” in Germany in ’92.
