Good news for the old school fans! We've just released a compilation album of the early demos. Included are the 2001, 2002 and never-before-released 2003 demos, resulting in an 8 song album, titled Chrysalis - The Early Demos.

All the material has been carefully remastered to bring these songs alive in a way they've never been heard before.

Chrysalis is available now on bandcamp at exiviousdemos.bandcamp.com and will be available shortly in Spotify, iTunes and all major online music stores.

December 22nd, 2016

As part of our farewell gigs, we'll be playing Soundart Festival in Romania, May 5th 2017. Get your early bird tickets here now!

More dates being announced soon.

Dear friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we’ve decided to end Exivious. I started the band not long after I picked up the guitar and ever since, it has been a major part of my life. Exivious has always evolved with our musical tastes. From the death metal days of our early demos to the jazz-fusion inspired debut album to the post-rock inspired 2nd album, Liminal.

I started a progressive singer/songwriter band called Our Oceans (www.ouroceans.net) with whom we released our debut album at the end of 2015. Taking on the vocal duties in this band changed everything for me; the way I see myself and what I aspire to become as a musician has completely shifted. Singing allows me to express myself in a way that I could never achieve on guitar. Which is why I decided to continue my musical endeavors with Our Oceans and focus all my energy on that band.

Meanwhile, my band mates’ need to play progressive, jazz-fusion inspired music has faded as well. Michel (Nienhuis, guitars) has been working on a 2nd album for his post-black metal band Dodecahedron (www.ddchdrn.com), which is going to be released early next year. Robin (Zielhorst, bass) has started a groove metal band OneGodLess (www.onegodlessofficial.com). Their debut album is to be released early next year as well and features Yuma (van Eekelen) on drums.

We debated to change styles and include vocals for Exivious, but that simply didn’t feel right. We’d hate to disappoint or disrespect our fans by not staying true to the essence of what Exivious is. So instead, we’re leaving the past for what it is and we’re happily moving on to our future bands and projects!

We’d like to thank our incredible fans for their love and support. To celebrate our musical journey and to say a final goodbye, we will be doing a handful of farewell shows in 2017.

We're very pleased to announce we'll be releasing our upcoming album Liminal, as well as our debut, on vinyl through Blood Music.

Blood Music is known for it's super high quality releases and both albums will be remastered to take full advantage of the sonic qualities of vinyl. So we'll try and make something special and worthy for all you vinyl freaks out there!

Both albums will be released mid/end 2014. So you'll have to wait a bit, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on any news!
