Blackened thrash and death metal from the depths below

Someone, turn off the lights. The only light shining will come from the hellish flames of Danish newcomers Xenoblight. Don’t stare at them for too long or you will drawn in. On the other hand, go ahead, this is pure metal energy that should incite the best kind of riots.

Xenoblight is a five-piece band hailing from the Danish town of Silkeborg. The band rose from the ashes of former band Velociter. And after just one year of existence, they were ready to unleash a debut album on the world. Procreation is full of whipping, fast-paced metal knockouts. Xenoblight takes the best elements from thrash metal and mix them with ample doses of death metal and black metal. Their music is full of fat and furious riffs, speedy tempos and hellish vocals.

The band competed in Wacken Metal Battle, won the Danish version and went to Wacken Open Air where they came fourth. It may silly to compete in music – but the point here is that Xenoblight have proven that they are a no-nonsense live band. They have ambitions and a bone-crushing sound. Their shows have been described as “pure unadulterated energy”, so there’s something to look forward to for all moshing metalheads when Xenoblight the Rising stage at Roskilde Festival 2019.
