NEWS: Seattle super sonic kings of "cosmic epic death/black metal" Xoth have a new song
Invasion of the Tentacube
Release: 10 November 2016
The new album is not quite ready for the world yet, but Seattle's time traveling shred manipulators of "cosmic epic death/black metal" do have a new song ready for you now. Right now! The album will be coming up soon, but not soon enough, but just bang your head a lot and listen to the new song. This is going to be the debut full-length album for the band. Isn't that exciting?! Yes, it is! I am listening to the new album and it sounds very good. This new song is not false advertising at all!
OFFICIAL: Invasion of the Tentacube is XOTH's first full length record, and will be unleashed upon humankind November 10, 2016, to be immediately followed by a west coast tour spanning between Seattle, WA and Tijuana, MX. Invasion of the Tentacube will treat the listener to a powerful mix of brutal drumming, shredding dual guitars, slap bass, and catchy melodies, all encompassed within a dark cosmic theme. Featuring ex-members of PHALGERON, WARBRINGER, and LECHEROUS NOCTURNE, XOTH can be likened to a blend of BAL-SAGOTH, VEKTOR, ABSU, and OBSCURA. The members' musical backgrounds and personal styles of playing vary extensively, but blend into one eclectic band seamlessly. XOTH appeals not only to the aficionado of complex time signatures, key changes and melodic composition, but also to your good ol’ heavy metal enthusiast; someone just looking to headbang along to some tasty licks and groovy drum and bass. XOTH is plummeting through space and into the future, ready to bring the world the Seattle Space Shred it deserves.
BIO: In the year 2014, four musicians from different regions of North America came together in the Pacific Northwest to create XOTH, a band that captured their love of space, science fiction, Lovecraftian horror, and most importantly Shred. Their first EP, Hostile Terraforming, was self-released in July 2014 and was immediately followed by a short West Coast tour with MOBILE DEATHCAMP. After the success of that musical adventure, XOTH has booked and promoted two more tours on their own, every time gaining more loyal fans who recognize their passion and genuine way of connecting with crowds on and off stage.
