|Xerath represent the cutting edge of British heavy metal. Combining monumental orchestral arrangements with bone shattering riffs on an epic scale, this outfit delivers the most forward thinking brand of progressive metal music.
Since 2007 Xerath have evolved from experiments combining orchestral compositions and extreme metal to a fully-fledged recording and touring line-up with their first album I, receiving critical acclaim across the board. I was unanimously received by European press as a technical revolution in experimental heavy metal.
Playing alongside such esteemed artists as Vader, Ihsahn, Abigail Williams, Shining [NOR], Entombed, Sylosis, and a wealth of the UK and Europe's biggest festivals, Xerath promise a truly unique live experience with consummate musicianship and neck-breaking intensity.
2011 will bring a hugely refined appraisal of Xerath's unique sound with the release of the band's second album, II, recorded at Foel Studios in the UK (Napalm Death, Porcupine Tree) with mixing credits going to Danish production savant Jacob Hansen (Aborted, Týr, Pestilence) at Hansen Studios.
