It’s been three years since Exorcizphobia’s last album, Digitotality, which showed them stepping up from an interesting band with potential to a serious contender for a modern great, and now we have their latest, Spiritual Exodus, to cement their status as such. Musically, they still work somewhere between the violent aggression of Dark Angel and the oddball experimentation of older Voïvod, throwing an endless barrage of propulsive, in-yer-fucking-face riffs that blast into you like a swarm of torpedoes, sharp tempo changes that retain the catchiness of the songs, killer hooks, and the excellent vocals of Tomáš Skořepa, who pulls off that Bay Area style as if he were a crossbreed of Charly Steinhauer and Sean Killian while also showing he can really fucking sing when he wants too. There are no weak tracks to be found, and even the oddball instrumental closer "Tiwanaku" is capable of keeping itself fierce and engaging even with an acoustic opening. I’d say more, but I’d mostly be repeating my previous review, so I’ll just say that Exorcizphobia are slowly but surely becoming one of the most interesting thrash bands on the globe who really have the chops to stand out as the best of their generation, and one listen to Spiritual Exodus will convince you of that like it did me. Killer fucking thrash.
