After signing with France's Osmose Records -- also known as a metal bands' absolute last resort -- the band issued the amazingly out-dated The Dark Command album.

Not even sure who released this CD version. I was always under the assumption the "Unveiling the Wicked" never made it to CD, however, since I have a disc sitting in my hand right now, I was obviously wrong.

Perhaps it never "officially" made it to CD. I also own the Combat Records pressing on vinyl. Exciter Maze Music Dan Beehler and his speed metal cohorts slow it down a notch or two for this one and bring in something unforgivable in thrash metal circles; melody. That's not to say the album isn't still heavy.

Personally I think it was an improvement, although the band's fan base didn't seem to go for it and this album didn't do to well for the pioneers of speed and aggression. Not sure why though, as Metallica did the same thing on "Master of Puppets" in and their popularity exploded.

Besides there are still plenty of speed metal to be had in tracks like "Scream Bloody Murder" and "Enemy Lines". One other big change on this album was that Dan Beehler relinquished his role as lead vocalist, hiring an equally high-range shrieker Rob Malnati.

Exciter recorded live at a club in February of The recording isn't bad, but not overly polished either, giving a true live feel. It is obvious that little, Ritual Death - Exciter - The Dark Command (CD any, overdubs or studio fixes were done. The reason I say that is because some of John's guitar solos are botched. This becomes painfully obvious since there is only one guitarist, and thus only bass and drums backing the guitar solos. It's hard to hide mistakes when you are out on you own like that.

Anyhow, despite this, there is a sense of excitement and energy that is conveyed on the disc, which is what I like about live albums. The material featured is all pulled from the band's first three albums, which most would consider their best.

I particularly enjoyed the material on the last half of the disc. Tracks 9 through 13 are some of the band's finest, Ritual Death - Exciter - The Dark Command (CD. Rain of Terror 2. No Life Ritual Death - Exciter - The Dark Command (CD Future 3.

The Second Coming 9. I Am the Beast [ live ] Blackwitch [ live ] Long Live the Loud [ live ] Rising of the Dead [ live ] Cry of the Banshee [ live ] Pounding Metal [ live ] The band's previous record was recorded with Dan Beehler being the only original member. Unfortunately bassist Allan Johnson decided not to return, or wasn't asked, so it's not a complete reunion.

Still, with two of the original members back and bassist David Ledden, Exciter set out to record an album reminiscent of their classic, genre-defining style. For the most part, I think they succeeded, Album). There is still those walls-of-riffs and Dan Beehler's vocals can still peel the paint off a wall and shatter wine glasses. Of course by speed and thrash metal had long since mutilated and morphed into a much more technical monster.

It's simply a matter if you can appreciate that band's history lesson in a genre they helped to create. The majority of the songs, however, are full throttle speed metal. The last song is listed as a live version of the title track.

Whether it is actually live or not, I do not know. However, it's a bit odd Ritual Death - Exciter - The Dark Command (CD they ended the album with a live version of a new song. As with those two classic albums, the production is raw and nasty, adding to the overall vibe of the album. I searched for years and finally scored this nice InRock bootleg version.

Exciter - The Dark Command Osmose In a new Exciter lineup was formed. Soon after their reformation "The Dark Command" was released. This "new" material sounds a lot like their original, fast, aggressive, speed metal sound, although the vocals are a bit more melodic yet still biting and aggressive. The lyrics haven't changed much over the years either. Exciter still likes to portray the stereotypical "evil" image with songs of death and war. If you can overlook this, then the music is spectacular.

Thanks Alec. Exciter - Blood of Tyrants Osmose As I said in the short bio above, it was this CD that rekindled my interest in this band.

I suppose some would label it thrash, while others would say speed metal. I'm not sure what to label it, but the music is furious and the vocals are just plain cool. I didn't know bands still made metal like this in Metal freak flag's are flyin' high in the Exciter camp.

Rob "Clammy" Cohen. Exciter - Death Machine Massacre Death Machine 2. Dungeon Descendants 3. Pray For Pain 4. Razor In Your Back 5. Demented Prisoners 6. Power and Domination 7. HellFire 8. Skull Breaker 9. The album ends with a hidden bonus track, which is nothing more than a manic guitar solo from Ricci. This thing comes right out of the U. Metal years. Those who were around in the early 80's surely remember the U. Metal compilations. It's pure heavy metal noise.

What a great way to end this album. Back to Index. Al Johnson. John Ricci, In the last few years it's become somewhat of a trend for classic rock, metal and thrash bands to re-record older material with their newer line-ups.
