Dear Exivious community,

For the first time since the release of our debut album back in May of 2009 I'm afraid we have to bring some really sad news. After careful consideration we decided to officially pull the plug on Exivious.

It's not a secret that this band and the album we released last year are very dear to me personally, but also to the rest of the band who put in the best their talent and creativity had to offer to create something really unique. But besides our personal experience, we feel all of you out there who supported us the past year are part of our Exivious community as well and as such you guys deserve a proper explanation of what's happening.

We're in a situation right now where we are simply unable to give Exivious the attention and love we believe it deserves. All four of us are completely consumed by other activities and it doesn't seem like this is going to change anytime soon. So instead of slowly letting our beloved band bleed to death, we rather put it to sleep ourselves.

In retrospect, we were completely blown away by the overwhelmingly positive response from both our listeners but also the press who reviewed our album. Never did we expect to get such a warm and enthusiastic reaction to our crazy music. With this in mind we'd like to thank all of you who supported us by picking up a copy of our album in the past year!

As most of you know we started things off by offering a luxurious limited edition of which we only printed a thousand copies. We're happy to announce we're sold out! The digipack version of our album is still available through our website and a select group of retailers.

Last but not least, we'd like to end this sad message with some good news. For the first time in Exivious history we're offering a t-shirt in our online shop which features the artwork of our debut album! Pre-orders are available at www.exivious.net.

Yours sincerely,

Exivious released one of my favorite albums last year. This really breaks my heart. Here's to hoping someone will carry one with exciting Jazz Metal the way it's meant to be played.

If you haven't heard them yet, do yourself a favor and get their first and only album. You'll be glad you did!

Cynic pays more

Cynic pays more

tl:dr? huh? :confused:

Yeah Cynic obviously pays more, Textures on the other hand I can picture being about the same. But at the same time. Exivious's album really had a huge impact on me last year. I'm actually listening to it now in remembrance. I love Jazz Fusion and love Metal. When you add the two together you had Exivious. Dam I'm going to miss them.

I don't know if I want to check this out. It sounds really cool and it will just piss me off to know they broke up already...

Well if you dig the music of Cynic and Textures, this is a really killer band to check out.

You know I kinda feel the same way. I'm pretty pissed off about it, but at least you can say they put out a damn perfect metal album. Top notch musicianship. All improvised solos too.

Damn you... Now I need to check 'em out. *adds to the list*

Seriously you'll be glad you did. I haven't heard this addicting of an instrumental album in a LONG time!
