Following their 2013 reunion, the Californian hardcore/thrash metal crossover band EXCEL have since teamed up with Southern Lord and are reissuing their debut album, Split Image (originally released through Suicidal and Caroline records). Widely regarded as a classic album, Split Image was produced by Randy Burns (Death, Possessed, Megadeth, Kreator, Suicidal Tendencies). The band will be supporting the reissue and praising their new era live on tour in Europe this coming November! The booking is on via email@example.com and dates available start on November 13th till November 22nd. Don’t wait up!
Having formed in 1984, EXCEL released three studio albums as well as a number of demos and singles. Equally informed by punk rock’s attitude and heavy metal’s riffs, EXCEL‘s fast, grinding and heavy sounds, combined with their intelligent lyrics, set them apart as a genre defining band of the era.
