Metal Hangar 18 conducted an interview with vocalist Mem V. Stein of German thrashers EXUMER on March 31 — a day before the band's co-headlining appearance at the Thrash Attack festival in Sofia, Bulgaria with L.A. power thrashers SAVAGE GRACE. Watch the chat below.
EXUMER's performance at Thrash Attack will mark the band's first time playing live in Bulgaria and the start of the group's "European Ignition Tour 2010".
EXUMER has not appeared live since last year's "5 Nights of Fire" mini-tour. This year's trek has a similarly intense routing, with the band set to play seven shows in Bulgaria, Germany, Italy and Norway within 10 days.
Commented Mem V. Stein: "We ended up on yet another whirlwind tour schedule where we play a bunch of countries in a short time. However, we have the opportunity to play in places we have never played before like Italy, Norway and Bulgaria.
"Last year's tour was a fantastic experience despite the hectic schedule and the overwhelmingly positive response from the fans proved us right. We are keeping the band intentionally off the road so our fans can treasure the EXUMER live experience. These European shows and few others in North and South America scheduled for later in the year will be all for 2010, making it special events for everyone involved."
