Xerosun “This Dark Rage” EP Review

xerosun-publicityphoto
Dublin based Xerosun recently released their new EP “This Dark Rage”, and I have to say I’m really impressed by it!

It’s hard to describe this bands sound. They really have developed their own sound with many influences and different genres in there. They describe themselves as Modern Extreme Metal, so I’ll go along with that one as I’m fucked if I can try to explain it to anyone. Good job I’ll be posting links here to their lead single “This Dark Rage” and a link to stream the entire EP via their official web site.

The EP kicks off with their lead single and title track “This Dark Rage” which is an brilliant way to kick things off. Excellent song! The growls mixed with melodic vocals really work and it sets the tone for what’s to come.  

“Anatomy Of A Lie” follows and doesn’t disappoint.  Another excellent song. 

“I Spared Hundreds” might be my favourite song on the EP, but with repeat listens I find I’ve a new choice each time. I’m jumping ahead a bit here, but the EP’s next track “The Mother of Morality” done nothing for me at first. Now I really like that song so this EP is a real grower! 

The EP concludes with “Repent, Rewind, Reset” and it’s an excellent way to close this EP.

In conclusion. This EP really needs to be listened to and not spoke about. I could have written a long in debt piece here, but all I really need to say is that this is an excellent EP and one of the most original releases you’ll hear from an Irish band.

This band will get really big in a just and fair reality!
