After The Burial
An uninhibited eight-stringed dual barrage of frenetic riffs and dynamic chord
progression is exactly what the crushing new AFTER THE BURIAL delivers with
pinpoint precision. This highly anticipated new offering is quickly going to raise the
bar for all others within the metal genre as this group effectively unleashes a frenzy of
jaw-dropping dual guitar dynamics that is backed by a captivating energy and groove
resulting in an overall unrelenting output of punishment. This Minnesota quintet is
hell-bent on forging their own unique path within the extreme metal genre and they
are well on their way to that very goal.
This is an extreme metal hybrid that is a voracious assault on all the senses forcing
your brain to fire on all cylinders in order to process the amount of material that is
currently being pounded into your ears. This is thinking man's metal and it's not for
the weak minded.
The tech-wizardry is amped way up, the breakdowns are massive and face-melting
and the vocal delivery is the most devastating yet. Already lauded for their technically
impressive yet well structured style of songwriting, AFTER THE BURIAL certainly
takes things up a notch or two with this newest outing. Each track will keep you on
your toes guessing what might possibly be next in this never-ending array of intensity.
This is essentially a roller coaster of unconventionality, so strap yourself in tight and
prepare for a wild ride.
Emmure was founded in 2003. Founding members Ben and Joe Lionetti (from New Fairfield, Connecticut) met Frank Palmeri (from Queens, New York) on the Internet and began rehearsals together. Mark Davis and Jesse Ketive soon joined.
Jesse Ketive was formerly in the band Warfix, in which he played guitar alongside Bryan Goldsman of Southside Panic.
On May 1, 2009, rumors of the Lionetti brothers departure from the band were confirmed in a statement from Joe Lionetti posted on www.lambgoat.com. According to its page on Victory Records' Web site, Emmure found a new guitarist and drummer in Mike Mullohand and Michael Kaabe. Mike Kaabe formerly played with Warfix and Endwell.
As of December 22, 2015, Frankie Palmeri is sole remaining member of the band, as all other band members have decided to quit.
