db Exclusive: The National Anthem Courtesy of Exmortus

Decibel‘s love of baseball is well documented, from the staff baseball road trip of years past recounted in the oral history of the magazine’s first decade to our annual baseball special. Our editor-in-chief is at this moment wondering why fate decided he should edit an extreme metal magazine rather than play in the majors.
So when we heard a rumor from our friends at Prosthetic Records that the young shredders in Exmortus served up their own version of the national anthem at a minor league game in Bakersfield, California we were all over it. Exmortus recently released the smoker Slave To The Sword and appeared in our Metal Muthas column. We’re happy to have them on the Deciblog.

Below, check out an exclusive video of Conan and David showing off their national pride and chops last week at a Class-A minor league Bakersfield Blaze game. Look for the holy shit moment when they play each other’s guitars at about 1:15.

Catch Exmortus on tour this fall with Arsis and Allagaeon, followed by a featured stop at Knotfest in late October. Dates follow the video.
