Darkly industrial debut from Dublin metal newcomers. A curious combination of atmospherically intense, at times droning, industrial metal and more traditionally melodic hard rock sensibilities, this brooding, spring heeled debut from Dublin's Xerosun manages to straddle some disparate (though rarely uncommercial) influences to come off as a compelling whole. It's a clever - if not entirely original combination; one that replicates an almost Rammstein-esque sense of claustrophobic portent but rails against it with defiant vocals not a million miles away from Metallica frontman James Hetfield's insolent twang. Indeed, with tracks as hookily brilliant as opener Cut Me Down its difficult not to look past this debut to bigger prospects looming promisingly on the horizon but for now, this'll do just fine. KKK.
