Chuck Schuldiner Project

Xi-oX is a ripping metal band from the Paris region. Their progressive song structures and powerful guitar riffs are not something to be messed with, instead you have to embrace their go for the throat mentality and raise your fist as Xi-oX cleanly and accurately tear their audience to shreds. This is the kind of band who are not afraid to experiment yet usually stay within what we would call 'normal metal'. This helps to make their experimental parts even more poignant and profound, showcasing the songwriting might of the band members. One thing I really like about this group is the different vocal styles they incorporate, from a thrashers shout to solid cleans and death growls their is a little something for every metalhead on their music. On some level it makes sense that these guys are good at what they do, they've been around in some form or another since summer of 1995. Now it looks like things are looking up for this French quintet and hearing how they develop their varied and powerful sound should be exciting! I look forward to seeing them live for the first time at OpenWall Fest on September 28th in Paris!
