Xael : ” Apathy of the Immortal” Single January 2018 Test Your Metal Records. Canada Brutal / Folk / Death Metal band. Starting with an acoustic intro that sets you into the folk era to move straight to heavy fast tempo brutal Death Metal. It’s pretty shocking and agressive if you’re not used to it.
A mix of diverse music styles like listening to two albums at once with technical guitars and passing from one to the other .. a bit like going from a radio station to another one by pressing the button. Blasting drums and growling voices, between Paradise lost meeting Cannibal corpse…several time in the same song.
You can check their bandcamp to hear more if you are interested.
Founded by Nassaru of Rapheumets Well/Enthean as well as Sorgiem “Daniel Presnell,” Tuurm “Alex Rush” from Enthean, and Xolotl “Fernando Ortega” and featuring various guest artists, XAEL is influenced by Septic Flesh, Iron Maiden, Augury, Wardruna and Fleshgod Apocalypse, vocalist / guitarist Nassaru describes the band’s music as “a thought provoking metal journey.”
A special journey in a very short time. There is creativity and good vibe but it is a bit too fast for me. Listen at your own risk 96/100.
