You know that there is a lack of great band names when you have to start finding band names under X. But jokes aside it is pretty darn hard to know how to pronounce band names starting with an X. But fortunately it is the music that should do all the talking. This black metal combo with the strange name are new to me. This Chilean/German collaboration displays the sort of black metal that is cathartic. That takes you on a journey that makes a rollercoaster seem like child’s play. This is raw, primitive and repetitive. It is like a conjuring of raw relentless black metal mayhem. Nothing symphonic or melodic here. Just pure fucking Armageddon. Anders Ekdahl
