This is easy. Buy a Mergress and you can experiment with more options than November and much better results. If you have a prefered handle wieght/ length there are 3 choices. It is a SUPERB razor with a nicely designed head, easy to clean and maintain with only a few quirks of no consequence. Phil can set you up ASAP.

Kav took the words out of my mouth, once you figure more of what you like if you decide to sell the Mergers it should sell very easy. Added benefit.

On Above the Tie's website they have a blade gap chart with various brands of razors.

An adjustable, such as the Progress or, simply, use a shim or two in your EJ DE89. Shy

It isn't much more aggressive, but the Merkur 34C might work for you.

The Progress is probably a better fit for your needs though.

You looked to far! Mergress is sold by Phil @ BULLGOOSE SHAVING: You may know him, runs a shaving forum? Thumbs nose at Jeff Bezos.

Bullgoose carries the Mergress as does Leesrazors but when they come in they go pretty quick. Bullgoose has an eskimo adjustable in stock which is also a modified progress.

You sound like me. I started with the exact razor and quickly found it too mild. I will repeat what the gentlemen above stated, adjustable. It will quickly allow you to dial in your shave without having to try multiple razors. The best, new would be the one mentioned above. 

There is also A couple of others from Merkur, like the Progress or Futur. 

Or you could go with Above the Tie and start with the R1 plate. I find it more aggressive than the EJ but not harsh. I couldn't use the H1 plate. But, if you found it too mild, you could just swap the baseplate for one that met your need. 

Also, look at the Rockwell with the switchable baseplates. You are provided flexibility. 

Like many, we started with a good safe razor and found it just wasn't quite there. Save a bit and buy one of the razors listed above. You won't regret it.

This, +1.  Either of these will do a great job.  Highly recommend going this route.

On the aggressiveness scale (which is directly proportional to blade exposure) the EJ is rather tame with only notably mild razors like the Feather ASD1 (or now 2) sitting below it. Muhle share a head design with EJ, so except for the notoriously aggressive R41 from circa 2011 you're not going to achieve much there. Luckily, pretty much every other razor manufacturer on the market will offer you a little more excitement. And as already suggested an adjustable like the Mergress (sold by Bullgoose) will provide an entire range of blade exposure for you to experiment with (rather than purchasing a variety of base plates to achieve the same function). However, IMO a coarse beard often benefits from a more rigid blade. With this in mind an SE like the ATT SE1 (conveniently also available from Bullgoose) might also be worth considering. If set on DE, I must recommend the Blackbird. Its not aggressive, but its certainly effective and most importantly every bit as comfortable as your EJ.
