-LIMITED GOLD VINYL
Exitus was a seminal Finnish doom/death/thrash metal band that only survived from 1989 to 1990. They released one official demo, Statutum Est Hominibus Mori in 1990 that was sold to friends and through the underground metal zines of the time. Only around 300 copies were ever made. The band played some gigs in Helsinki area with local bands like Abhorrence and Oppression and were quite popular in those circles.
Now, 23 years later, the remastered demo is available on vinyl with a bonus CD-EP of unreleased live and rehearsal tracks. You’ve finally got the chance to hear what dark, gloomy, sounds they used to make back then. An absolute must for fans of Dream Death, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Candlemass..
The Svart reissue consists of the entire 30 minute demo remastered on LP and an ultra-rare rehearsal tape as added bonus on CD. The set comes in gatefold covers and is available on black (350) and limited gold (150) vinyl.
"In 1990, around the time the second wave of Doom Metal started its gathering by bands like Cathedral, Penance and Revelation, far away in the periphery of Finland one group did its solitary toil, in shadows and silence.Their existence was brief and mostly unnoticed, but the material so powerful, that had the eyes and ears of the world been turned for that one moment towards them, they would be revered as one of the pioneering saviours of Doom.
Now, the world has got a second chance. Enter EXITUS!"
