EXIVIOUS announces debut album, to be released in May 2009.

Fusionmetal - A relatively new and unexplored genre in the world of metal. Exivious marks a first to truly marry jazzfusion with metal into a coherent new style. Featuring members of legendary US prog band CYNIC and Dutch metallers TEXTURES, Exivious isn't an over the top math metal band and certainly isn't a loungy jazz combo either. But expect everything in between!

With a jazzfusion backbone Exivious uses freaky metal riffs to decorate their organic eruption of free improvisations and complex rhythms. Guitarist Tymon comments: "We finally managed to transform a vision I had a long time ago into 9 intense and fiery songs. There's an immense amount of information in there that will definitely take more than one spin in your CD player to comprehend!"

The band will release the album independently to preserve 100% creative freedom. This is not only evident in their music but also in the artwork. Their self titled debut will appear in a limited 1000 numbered copies, each single copy bundled with its own unique artwork.

An mp3 stream of the song “Waves Of Thought” is available on the Exivious website and myspace now!

Exivious is:
Tymon (Cynic) – guitar
Michel Nienhuis (ex-Sengaia) – guitar
Robin Zielhorst (Cynic, ex-Blue Man Group) - bass
Stef Broks (Textures) – drums

First off: My apologies for the shameless self promotion! I hope you guys will understand our position as an independent band without a record company behind us to promote us.

Anyways, I hope you guys will dig our stuff! If there's any questions, gear related, recording related or whatever, feel free to ask!

Cheers,
Tymon

It would appear they do.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Great ****, Tymon.

You don't know how refreshing it is to hear something like this. I love how the fretless sounds, and your tone compliments that bass tone very well.

I might as well ask, how do you get that guitar tone?
I've found Jesus

Listened to the album. Not bad, but I wasn't too enthralled into it...ended up listening to Atheist after the 2nd song.

I'll finish listening to it later, but there was a lot of good stuff in Time and its Changes.
Lost interest.
