Exumer - "Rising From The Sea" (audio)

Walking down this dark street again I see the shadow
I turn to see who's there, 1 know it wants me dead
I start to walk faster, thinking it's just in my head
I sentenced him for life, long long ago
He threatened to escape and seek his revenge
Today the headlines read a killer had gotten loose

Why does he haunt me, killer won't let me be
Night after night I can't get no steep
Everywhere 1 turn he's stalking me
I see the blade in the light
He calls my name but nothing's there
Turn face to face into an empty stare

Waiting for someone I know
I don't want to be atone
I got to get away
He's right behind me

He kills for fun, I can't escape his grasp
Foot steps, breathing, turn and your his prey
A shadow, unseen, you wish to live
He follows so close, it's all in his head
Your mind is playing tricks, or at least you hope so

He's return to haunt, I'd heard he was dead
Is this a phobia that won't let me be
Behind the curtain, in the closet, waiting to spring
Under the bed, in your house, he loves killing you

A cry in the night I know it's the wind
There in the bush he was looking in
Every little sound makes my skin crawl
He'd love to watch me die
I know that he's here I feel the time growing near

Running he's trying to catch me, I've got to get away
He wants to have my death, seeking a place to hide
A knife sunk deep inside, I don't want to die

I'm going to kill you right now and I'm going to

Το τραγούδι των Exumer "Shadows Of The Past" από το album "Rising from the Sea"
Exumer: Αμερικάνικο thrash metal συγκρότημα. Δραστηριοποιήθηκε στο δεύτερο μισό της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα, ενώ επανήλθε δριμύτερο πριν από δεκατρία έτη συνεχίζοντας μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Έχει κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους, τρία demos, δύο συλλογές, ένα Boxed set κι ένα single.

Το δεύτερο album τους τιτλοφορείται "Rising from the Sea" και "βγήκε" το καλοκαίρι του 1987. Η πιο πρόσφατη επανακυκλοφορία του ήταν το περασμένο καλοκαίρι (1η Ιουλίου 2021) από την High Roller Records σε βινύλιο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Exumer are one of the living legends of German Thrash. After having re-released their stunning debut “Possessed By Fire” from 1986, High Roller Records now give you the chance to add their second album to your vinyl collection.

“Rising From the Sea” from 1987 was Exumer’s last output in the full-length format before the split in 1991. Back then, it was Paul Arakari who had taken over the vocal duties, but still, original vocalist Mem von Stein has something to say about its significance for Exumer:

The album was quite important because it was our sophomore release and meant either to cement our reputation as one of the serious and upcoming thrash bands out of Germany, or to sink.” Mem’s own favourite song on the album is ‘Winds of Death’, “but there are a few good songs on that record that we still play live to this day.

Compared to the debut album “Possessed By Fire”, the band’s second output went in a more “Slayer” sounding style of thrash with some of the Exumer trademarks and also showcased some improved technical aspects with regard to musicianship that “Possessed By Fire” did not have, since it was a pretty straightforward album.

Also, in terms of the production, “Rising From the Sea” differs from its predecessor in that it is a lot rawer and rather bare-boned. Does Mem agree on that? “Yes I do. I don't think it was intentional, since the band was under a lot of pressure to record and write at the same time, and thus the production suffered a little.”»
