Unleashing their new EP ‘Extinction Necromance’ last week on May 19th to follow 2012’s full length ‘Malignance‘, Vernon, BC blackened death metal band XUL is destroying the pit with their new music video for their track ‘Orbit of Nemesis’,
“We’ve always loved playing live and our live experience has become one of the bands best traits. With our first video, we’ve tried our best to capture that experience to show people who haven’t yet or can’t get to a show what we’re all about.” comments guitarist Bill Ferguson.
‘Extinction Necromance’ is now streaming and available for download at following link here along with CD and shirt combos available here.
Following in the footsteps of bands such as Behemoth, Dissection, and Immortal, XUL has left the beaten path to forge their own brand of blackened death metal that’s overflowing with crushing rhythms seamlessly coalescing into atmospheric passages and accompanied by a storm of punishing percussion with vicious vocal harmonies to expand on their previous work on Malignance.
This follow up EP, ‘Extinction Necromance’ heralds a new age of northern darkness with songs reminiscent of cold lonely tombs, malevolent intent and predatory nature. XUL captivates audiences like light attracts flies as they delve deeper into the maelstrom and build on an already impressive Western Canadian following that has seen them support heavyweights including Obscura, Exhumed, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire and 3 Inches of Blood.
