Defunctus in Heresi
Since 1999 Exinferis have been playing unrelentless, brutal music, oblivious of the musical trends and tendencies of the moment. This determination and 'no compromise'- attitude allowed us to forge our own identity over the years and to define our own style. Despite a few line-up changes and ups-and-downs we never stopped our course and managed to keep up the pace, playing whenever and wherever we could, reaching a total of more than 150 shows and releasing four cds in five years. At the top of Luxembourg's metal scene, we decided to try to develop the bands' notoriety in other countries. In 2003 we started work on our next album to be entitled 'Defunctus in heresi', not knowing what was awaiting us down the line... ... after months of work and a change of singer, 'Defunctus in heresi' was recorded in summer 2004 at Midas Studio in Lokeren, Belgium with Tony de Block on commands. The songs were mixed in October/November 2004. 'Defunctus in heresi' was released on the 22nd January 2005 and more than 300 people came to welcome our new opus at the release party-gig. Hundreds of cds were sent out all over the world to webzines, magazines, labels and radio-stations and slowly we started getting feedback from the media. The response to 'Defunctus in heresi' was more than we had awaited. The music, along with the fact that we had released this on our own, impressed the European metal community and raised the attention towards the band. But the band needs to be on the road too so we tried to do as many shows as possible throughout Europe, promoting the CD and dong our best to gain a new audience everywhere we played. We played in Luxembourg, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain, the highlights of which were the selection of the band for the annual Bilbao Bilborock Festival (SP) and reaching the third place among hundreds of bands, the opening slot for Apocalyptica in front of a sold out (1000+ audience) Kulturfabrik in Luxembourg, seeing the audience go crazy at the Meetjes Metalfest in Eeklo (B) and opening for The Black Dahlia Murder again at the Kulturfabrik (L). For the latest news we managed to arrange a distribution-deal in Summer 2006 for 'Defunctus in heresi' with the French label RUPTURE MUSIC, a division of Several Bleeds Records, for the French market.
