A five piece group based out of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, following in the footsteps of bands such as: Behemoth, Dissection, and Immortal, XUL have left the beaten path and set out to forge their own brand of Blackened Death Metal.
An energetic and interactive live performance – with crushing rhythms seamlessly coalescing into atmospheric passages, accompanied by punishing percussion waves and subtle vocal harmonies – expands upon the previously established essence of the sub-genre. With songs reminiscent of war-torn landscapes, destructive human nature and evil intention, XUL has captivated audiences and garnered positive reviews, and on June 16th 2012, released their first full length album, entitled “Malignance”.
Driven by determination and a diverse accumulation of musical comprehension, XUL has toured Western Canada, as well as proven themselves worthy to share the stage with bands such as: Obscura, Exhumed, ABSU, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire, Skeleton Witch, Beyond Creation, 3 Inches of Blood, Origin, Cryptopsy, Gorguts and Pallbearer.
XUL is currently writing with plans to record this winter for an album release sometime in 2017.
