Xerosun / Bio

XEROSUN are a five piece metal band originating from Dublin, Ireland. 2013 sees Xerosun revealing their new lineup and a change of musical direction. Fiachra Kelly (Guitars) and Gareth Jeffs (Guitars) are joined by Marcin Nowak (Bass) Damien Dziennik (Drums) and Martyna Halas (Vocals). The new trio bring with them a wealth of experience that has helped to mould the new sound and look of Xerosun. The band have recently released a brand new single called "Anatomy of a Lie" which is accompanied by a video.

Combining an eclectic mix of influences, XEROSUN produce a melodic, powerful, aggressive and above all, original sound. Crossing the boundaries of heavy music with soaring and passionate vocals, they have carved a place for themselves in modern metal.

Relentless gigging commenced across Ireland, Northern Ireland and into the UK. As the band progressed, the crafting of their sound and vision continued with music videos shot to coincide with two EP releases. These efforts culminated in the band making their live television début to an audience of 500,000 people on Irish national television.

Following this, XEROSUN played as the sole support act 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 XEROSUNs lyrics and chanting for more.

19th December 2011 saw the guys releasing their début album "Absence of Light", and it has been gathering fantastic praise from the metal and mainstream press alike. It 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". Kerrang! magazine praised it as "...atmospherically intense..." & "...hookily brilliant...", awarding it three K’s. UK Metal Hammer magazine named it "...a killer record..." with "...a great deal of ingenuity and some stunning tunes..." awarding it 7/10 and Irish Hot Press Magazine called it "...a melodic molten slab of heavy metal that immediately evokes the thunder..." and awarded it 4/5. The album can be purchased on-line from the band's xerosun.com/shop, iTunes, Amazon and all good retailers.

Absence of Light contains artwork provided by famed artist Seth Siro Anton, who's artwork adorns other metal greats such as Paradise Lost, Soilwork, Caliban, Septicflesh and Kamelot.

XEROSUN have also forged some great working partnerships by officially endorsing Hartke Bass Amps, Mayones Guitars and Basses, ISP Technologies, ACS In Ear Monitors, Samson Technologies, Taurus Bass Effects, Murat Diril Cymbals, Offset Drum Pedals & Klieber Audio.

With tour dates in the UK and Europe looming on the horizon and new songs already in the works, XEROSUN are well on their way to conquer the world one crushing, melodic step at a time.
