Exhumed of the Earth

Exhumed of the Earth is the debut album by Paramaecium. It was released in 1993. Exhumed of the Earth is considered to be one of the landmarks of both doom metal and Christian metal movements.

Recording history

Exhumed of the Earth was recorded from April 12 to May 1, 1993 in Toybox Studios, Northcore, Melbourne, Australia. The band incorporated several classical instrument arrangements on the album, most notably on the 17 minute epic "The Unnatural Conception". Rosemary Sutton played violin and Judy Hellemons flute. Sutton also did the soprano vocals. The storyline of the album based on the Bible: it begins at the birth of Christ, continues through his resurrection, speaks of the disciples, and ends with Christians coming to life from the dead. Because the biblical references in the lyrics are elegantly written, the album has been often compared to old My Dying Bride. Musically, Exhumed of the Earth is mostly slow paced doom metal with few death metal influences, most notably on the death growl vocals of Andrew Tompkins and on tracks like "Injudicial".

Paramaecium sel-released Exhumed of the Earth in 1993 and later allowed several labels to distribute the album.

Exhumed of the Earth was well-received and it has been called from "doom metal classic to "Perhaps the greatest heavy metal album in the history of the genre".
