XENO “Sojourn”

(Art Gates Records)

Battle Helm Rating

Progressive death metal from the Netherlands. Is it just me or are you too thinking Pestilence? I had the chance to see Pestilence live on my birthday in 2019. And what a gig it was. I am not saying that XENO has to match that experience for me to like them but if they do I will be a life-long fan of them. This is sure enough progressive. I get a feeling from this that I have heard this before. I just cannot remember what band this reminds me of. I am also feeling a bit confused listening to this as it does not really sound like death metal. When Nocturnus used keyboards it still sounded death metal. This sounds more like progressive metal with death metal vocals. Or close to. This was not at all my cup of death metal. Anders Ekdahl
