Exhumed is an American death metal band from San Jose, California, most recently signed to Relapse Records. They were formed in 1990, when founding and sole-remaining member Matt Harvey was 15 years old. Exhumed spent much of the ensuing decade releasing numerous demos, split CDs, and EPs. The band finally recorded their debut album Gore Metal in 1998. The album crystallized the old-school death metal meets full-on grindcore sound forged during the recordings of their last demo and first split CD ("Horrific Expulsion of Gore" and "In the Name of Gore").
