Once upon a time....we like to make you beat things with your heads, bodies and fists!!! Biography Ixion Lux is a fast, angry, in your face New Jersey metal band with songs that identify and suffocate you with Insanity, mortality, and mans impulsive behavior to destroy itself.
Ixion Lux finds its roots during the mid 1980’s heyday of thrash metal. With influences from bands like Slayer, Metallica, Testament, Anthrax, and Exodus to glean from and a few more classic influences like Judas Priest and Black Sabbath.
The name and creed of Ixion Lux is to bring light to that which is damned. Ixion, in greek mythology is a demi-god who dared to seduce Zues wife. Zues in turn sentenced Ixion to an eternity of torture via a burning wheel of fire. Lux simply means “Light”. There are a lot of screwed up things in this world that need some light shed on its darkness. The songs are a mirror into mans psyche, and are geared to identify with each persons struggle to stay sane and positive in a violent world.
With the band fully ablaze with hellbent aggression they have begun heating up the New Jersey Metal Scene. Ixion Lux founder, vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and all around wild man, John Mosher, originally conceived and spawned the first Ixion Lux in the 1980's with his long time best friend Mike Trani (partime lyricist for the band) to great success. In the many years that followed however, the original members each went their own way and Ixion's “lux” was temporarily extinguished....but not for long. In 2005 Mosher began writing again and found the perfect mix of classic thrash and modern metal to form a new yet familiar sound and the torch was re-ignited. With the addition of Mike Wilday (Formally of the 90’s thrash Giants Spin PsyKill) melodically and menacingly melting you with speed-intoxicated lead writing , Dave Rucci (brother of original Ixion Lux drummer Phil Rucci, also from Spin PsyKill) with his fatal and unpredictable, rhythmic assault, and Wayne Cordiner's gritty bass lines, and sociopathic attack the inferno rages on. Their first full length album, "Sanatorium Rd." is due out in early 2013.
This summer Ixion Lux is holding free back yard BBQ concerts in an effort to inspire local Jersey music fans to get out from in front of their computer screens and interact with humans and great music!!!! Description get to point already. No one reads half of the crap bands say about themselves. Band Interests Pummeling instruments into submission.
