𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Scaling off the charts with raw compositions of fast razor-sharp, technical/sophisticated riffing, that is full of groove, with odd tech fret-board (killer) solos, topped off razor-sharp pickings of the bass.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Harking back to those harsh – old-school thrash metal vocals, topped off with -Esque of early Venmon style.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Hamming of fast & raw drums & double bass beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Starting with track one, of instrumental picking of an acoustic intro, then combustion of pure 100% thrash metal played through fast and aggressive compositions.


Xenos is a band that any metal fan could ask for.. an album filled with the deliverance of old-school primitive & chaotic sound; topped with substantial, dynamic, with a filling of adrenaline & solid tech-groove structure.


With nine insane tracks on the album, we are not welcome to an old-school thrash metal delight, but a double pleasure of two guest musicians and a cover song, track four features Jeff "Mantas" Dunn of Venom, Venom Inc. & track nine features, Si Cobb of Anihilated, with track eight 'Peace Sells.' (Megadeth cover) is strip to the bare bones, with killer guitar & bass licks & vocals, that are all groovy & raw.

*Entertaining* Powerful & Raw* * No Bulls**t *Pure Thrash Metal*

*True Discovering of Delight*
