Fucking finally...

Quote:
Guitarist John Ricci of Canadian thrash metal pioneers EXCITER has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"Great news to all EXCITER fans worldwide: myself and original [EXCITER] members Dan Beehler [drums, vocals] and Allan Johnson [bass] have officially reunited! We intend [on] performing our bone-crushing, neck-snapping speed metal in as many countries that will have us!

"To celebrate our long-anticipated reunion, our first confirmed gig will be at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Konigshofen, Germany, April 24, 2015. We hope to see you there! Our performance will consist of all the classics that established EXCITER as one of the pioneers of speed and thrash. New material and a new release will eventually follow.

"I also want to comment on my so-called 'retirement' which was posted on various sites on February 24 by the former EXCITER members. I just want to say I never said I was going to retire. In my opinion, this retirement announcement was fabricated exaggeration. What I did say is that 'I need a break from music' due to some rebellious behaviour from one of the musicians in the band. So, at this point, all that B.S. is behind me and I am now focusing on delivering some new ear-splitting, brain-rattling METAL with Dan and Allan!

"I want to thank all the loyal and dedicated fans and music industry individuals that contacted me during this false retirement statement and offering their support and a positive outcome to a situation that was non-repairable.

"Hope to see you soon with 'horns high and fists in the air!'"

The original EXCITER lineup recorded three classic albums in the 1980s "Heavy Metal Maniac" (1983), "Violence & Force" (1984) and "Long Live the Loud" (1985) before Ricci left he group and was replaced by Brian McPhee.

EXCITER's latest album, "Death Machine", which featured Ricci as the sole remaining original member, was released on October 29, 2010 via Massacre Records.

Can't really care about any new material but holy hell I do want to see this live on stage! Long live the loud!

I'm all about Old Exciter but after hearing Dan screech his way through a bunch of old tunes at HOA a few years back I'm not expecting much on stage.

Great !
Some of the tunes on the BEEHLER Lp were cool, but I didn't like the Pantera-type influence that was creeping in.

I was not figuring a reunion was happening as just 1 or 2 months ago, guitarist John Ricci said he was retiring, so I thought that was the end of EXCITER;
unless the others would be carrying the band name.
(I was never satisfied enough by the non-Beehler albums to buy them, but they were pretty heavy).
Now that I read the new Ricci statement, curious what will happen next.

Not the first time a band would continue without any original members.

Haha, wonder which one of the members was being rebellious. Probably Clammy, after that statement about his boot "due to differences (both personal and business) regarding the future of the band."...

I'm not huge on their new stuff but Kenny was a pretty good vocalist and they knew how to give a show.

The albums with Jacques Belanger on vox were way better than the most recent. Dude could scream like Halford and sing like Bruce.

Here's some recent footage of the original three. Sounds damn good to me! Now if only they'd do some shows in the US and include "Iron Dogs" in the setlist.
