These efforts culminated in the band making their live television début to an audience of 500,000 people on Irish national television. Crossing the boundaries of heavy music with soaring and passionate vocals, XEROSUN has carved a place for themselves in modern metal. Their début album “Absence of Light” was awarded the maximum 5 out of 5 by UK’s Black Velvet Magazine who described it as a “…dark sounding industrial monster… drawn together brilliantly and magnificently done”. The album can be purchased on-line at http://www.xerosun.com in a limited edition digipak with stunning artwork provided by Seth Siro Anton. Seth’s artwork can be found on the covers of other metal greats such as Paradise Lost, Soilwork, Caliban, Septicflesh and Kamelot. XEROSUN recorded a version of Paradise Lost’s seminal, gothic metal classic ‘True Belief’.
It pricked the ears of Paradise Lost’s guitarist, Gregor Mackintosh, who voiced his approval in an email to the band saying “Cracking cover lads, made me feel very nostalgic”. November 2010 saw XEROSUN playing support to the mighty Avenged Sevenfold on the Irish leg of their world tour. The sold-out gig held in Dublin’s famous Olympia Theatre saw a very receptive and engaged crowd singing along to Xerosun’s lyrics and chanting for more XEROSUN. With a strong, grass-roots support in the US college radio circuit and a fast growing fan base in Europe, XEROSUN are set to conquer the world one crushing, melodic step at a time.
