He's got the skills, he's got the spirit!
Welcome back, bro!
With greatest regrets we have to announce the departure of our guitarist and long-
He is looking for new territories that we are not able to fulfill.
We wish him all the best for his musical and professional career.
Thank you for the music, friendship and the good time we had together!

Excruciation have signed a worldwide deal with Wormholedeath/Aural Music
for the release of [c]rust that will be produced by Wahoomi Corvi and will be unleashed during 2016.
The band will enter the studio on August the 17th 2015 and is now very busy with songwriting.
[c]rust will represent the band's deeper step into darkness and will be released in collaboration with the bands own label Auric Records.
With [c]rust, Excruciation will forge their versatile influences ranging from
80s Dark Wave and Crustcore to oldschool Black and Doom Metal into a new piece of extreme metal! Behold!
WormHoleDeath/Aural Music stated:
"We are honored to work with such a cult band and we will do everything possible to support their work at the best possible level. We have asked them to go deeper than they did with [G]HOST as we are willing to expose the essence of EXCRUCIATION, the skeleton of this band. We will expose the violence and straight downward energy that lies within EXCRUCIATION. They told us, human flesh and skin is the crust that keeps us standing. But like rust eats iron, life decomposes the shell and nothing more than dust and bones will remain."
The Crypt/Dark Symphonies secured the rights for the first official CD release of Last Judgement!
To be released summer 2015.
Official announcement of The Crypt/Dark Symphonies:
"EXCRUCIATION (Swi) The Last Judgement + Demos Official CD Coming Soon DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT!
We are proud to announce our cooperation with legendary Swiss thrash metal act EXCRUCIATION, to present for the first time ever on CD, their classic debut album "The Last Judgement".

This amazing piece of history will have the same standard of quality as the original CRYPT LP version and features original cover art, classic band photos, reviews, interviews, new liner notes and lyrics. This CD is designed after the original 1987 CHAINSAW MURDER Records LP release, taking elements from the original layout with attention to detail, even down to the logo and typeface for a touch of nostalgia.
