Formed in 1991, when the band's sole remaining founding member Matt Harvey was at the tender age of 15, Exhumed spent much of the ensuing decade hacking its way through numerous line-ups, demos, split CDs, and EPs. The band finally recorded their debut album, the genre-(re)defining and critic-repulsing Gore Metal in 1998. The album crystallized the "old-school Death Metal meets full-on Grindcore with the spirit of Thrash" sound forged with their last demo and first split CD (1994's Horrific Expulsion of Gore and 1996's In the Name of Gore respectively).

The band evolved further with their third album, 2003's
Anatomy is Destiny with more sophisticated arrangements, production and instrumentation within the gore metal formula. Work was also undertaken on a DVD with live footage and documentary material, but the band's dissolution in '05 left the project in limbo.

After six years away from the scene and numerous other projects, Harvey, Caley, and del Muerte teamed up with drummer Danny Walker (Intronaut, Murder 
Construct, Phobia), for their acclaimed comeback album, All Guts, No Glory in 2011. With the positive reception of the record, Exhumed undertook a grueling road schedule and somewhere in the middle of all of this touring, the band found the time to write and record a new album, Necrocracy, released August 6, 2013 to critical acclaim.

In 2017,
Exhumed returned with their 6th full-length as they tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album. Lock the mausoleum doors and chain up the cemetery gates – Death Revenge is a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820's in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

King Parrot
2020 will see King Parrot celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band and what better way to do it than headlining the ever-evolving Thrash Blast Grind tour through New Zealand alongside Exhumed. Like a pitchfork to the skull King Parrot tore through your eyes, ears and brain once again with their 3rd full length release Ugly Produce. A step-up in every sense, the reckless Aussies topped themselves with another savagely brutal LP; a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems veined deeply in the extreme underground sound.

Never the band to shy away from their roots and the scene that gave birth to them, King Parrot are forever on a mission to take this depraved, insidious wrecking machine to audiences around the globe. Their unique over the top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on
Ugly Produce while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with; Angst, Aggression, Absurdity and Antics.

King Parrot have evolved into a fully-fledged touring and creative force barely stopping for a breath since their inception on the international metal scene in 2013. Tour after tour with the likes of Soulfly, Obituary, Down, Cattle Decapitation, Exodus, Superjoint, Voivod, Philip H Anselmo and The Illegals and their own headlining tours in Australia, the band are now hardened road warriors. King Parrot possess a rare and deep hunger for the raucous and off the wall live shows that they've become revered for. These outings fuel the creative drive within the band to compose only the most angst-driven and vile expressions to ensure maximum involvement from audiences that lap up every frantic beat, chainsaw riff and psychotic scream. Ugly Produce is a testament to the blood, sweat and tears poured into everything King Parrot does.
