    EXIVIOUS announces debut album, to be released in May 2009.

    Fusionmetal - A relatively new and unexplored genre in the world of metal. Exivious marks a first to truly marry jazzfusion with metal into a coherent new style. Featuring members of legendary US prog band CYNIC and Dutch metallers TEXTURES, Exivious isn't an over the top math metal band and certainly isn't a loungy jazz combo either. But expect everything in between!

    With a jazzfusion backbone Exivious uses freaky metal riffs to decorate their organic eruption of free improvisations and complex rhythms. Guitarist Tymon comments: "We finally managed to transform a vision I had a long time ago into 9 intense and fiery songs. There's an immense amount of information in there that will definitely take more than one spin in your CD player to comprehend!"

    The band will release the album independently to preserve 100% creative freedom. This is not only evident in their music but also in the artwork. Their self titled debut will appear in a limited 1000 numbered copies, each single copy bundled with its own unique artwork.

    An mp3 stream of the song “Waves Of Thought” is available on the Exivious website and myspace now!.

    Exivious is:
    Tymon (Cynic) – guitar
    Michel Nienhuis (ex-Sengaia) – guitar
    Robin Zielhorst (Cynic, ex-Blue Man Group) - bass
    Stef Broks (Textures) – drums

    www.exivious.net
    www.myspace.com/exivious



    First off: My apologies for the shameless self promotion! I hope you guys will dig our stuff. If there's any questions, gear related, recording related or whatever, feel free to ask.

    Cheers,
    Tymon

    Hi Tymon!

    First of all (Sorry, I have to get this out of my system!:lol:), Traced In Air was (And still is!) a complete masterpiece in every sense of the word. I have listened to it just about every day since it came out and, even in such a short period of time, it has already had a huge impact on me. Anyone who was involved in that record in anyway gets my immediate respect.

    I really like what I hear so far in Exivious. Fusion Metal is my favorite genre of music and quality releases are few and far between these days. This sounds like it will be very interesting. Please keep us up to date on release dates etc etc. I will definitely buy a copy of this!

    Also, I'm a regular poster on the Planet X message board and most of us are huge Cynic and fusion fans in general. I know for certain that this will be of interest to most of them. I would gladly start a thread about this over there if you want.

    Thanks!

    It seems I had an account for the Planet X forum from a long time ago, so I just spammed their forum as well ;) Thanks for pointing me that way.

    The track that's up is awesome! Really mature sound for a band with only two demos, but by the standing of the musicians involved we probably could have guessed that.
    Looking forward to the album, will the cd be avaliable to preorder? I know I'd just decide to buy it as soon as the stocks run out otherwise :rofl:.

    Thanks! It's only been 2 official demos but a LOT of years and non-released demos since I started this band haha.

    We'll start taking pre orders in March. I'll keep you posted here on this forum!

    Just ordered too. Expensive, yes. But I'm confident that it's a worthwhile purchase. All there is to do now, is to wait.:)

    ^ Agreed. I also pre-ordered it. The Aussie exchange rate sucks, which makes it extra expensive, but this cd will be amazing, and well worth it I'm sure. :cool:

    Just listened to Asurim, sounds ridiculously awesome! This could be the release of the year for me, reminds me very much of Holdsworth playing metal... :headbang:
