    Death metal band Exhumed have dropped a brand-new song titled “Playing with Fear.”

    The menacing romp is the latest release from their forthcoming concept album, Horror. “As reality fades away / Insanity, is drawing near / Madness unleashed / Playing with fear,” frontman Matt Harvey sings on the chorus. Later in the song, guitarist Sebastian Philips, who joined the band last year, shows off his chops with a blazing solo.

    Horror is Exhumed’s first album in two years, since 2017’s Death Revenge. The record, which also includes the previously released track “Ravenous Cadavers,” arrives this Friday via Relapse Records.
