Exarsis were formed near the end of summer back in 2009 by Chris Poulos (Bass) and George Oikonomou (Drums) while they were still in high school. The aim was clear to play old school thrash metal like the bands they grew up with. In February of 2010, Panayiotis Tsitsis (Guitars) will join the band and after a lot of search for a vocalist Alexis Papatheofanous (Vocals) finally joins the band at July. In September the band records a home made demo (Demo 2010) with their first two songs and a Whiplash cover. The demo was given free to their live shows. By the spring of 2011, Exarsis recorded their debut album “Under Destruction” (D.I.Y. produced) with the band’s guitarist Chris doing the mixing/mastering. When no record label answered Exarsis uploaded “Under Destruction” album for free download at Christmas of 2011. 2012 came and found Exarsis having new material! The band was ready to enter GrindHouse Studios on June to record their second album called “The Brutal State” produced by Exarsis and George Bokos and mixed/mastered by Vasilis Gouvatsos at GrindHouse studios. Quickly Exarsis signs with MDD Records to release “The Brutal State” on March of 2013.
