Produced by Jacob Hansen (Destruction, Heaven Shall Burn, Volbeat),the second album from England’s Xerath is a piercing slice of metal. Crushing riffs, cinematic symphonic arrangements, and unrelenting drums, II is a record that will immediately capture attention. Xerath was originally formed in 2007 as an experiment to combine film score composition with extreme groove-based heavy metal. Now a fully functional band with an emphasis on the live stage, Xerath aims to remain on the cutting edge. To date the band have performed alongside Ihsahn, Entombed, label mates Abigail Williams, Vader, and more. Terrorizer call the band “one of the most exciting things to come out of the UK scene in a long time.”
