Exxxekutioner are four lunatics from Salford who truly embody that immortal trinity of Heavy Metal: hard booze, hard drugs, and er, Greggs pasties. Oh, and the singers name is Cliff Edge. Really.
Formed in early 2013, these lads joined forces to celebrate their mutual love of Thrash, Black, Punk and Speed Metal. Exxxekutioner are the ultimate mix of Sodom, Celtic Frost, Sepultura and Destruction, played, through the foul filter of Vomitor.
They broke into the scene with their raw as fuck demo, 'Black Witchery', recorded using a tape deck with a leather jacket lashed over the top. It was uploaded straight to Youtube, and even though you're only able to hear it in one ear, people seemed to like it, some even bootlegging their own tapes.
After playing an early gig for Ulthar Records, they were quickly snapped up for their debut EP, 'Fear the Priest'. Recorded live, they managed to bang the whole thing out in a single take! Harking back to the Thrash demos of old, these 6 tracks are a full 20 minutes of wall-to-wall riffs.
