Seattle space shredders XOTH and Invisible Oranges have launched the exclusive worldwide premiere of “Back to the Jungle,” off the band’s forthcoming second full-length album, Interdimensional Invocations.
Stream “Back to the Jungle” at this location.
“This album is an absolute trove of tech-death delights, the music blending effortlessly with the band’s themology and approach. It’s one of the juiciest fruits spawned by the genre this year.” – Invisible Oranges
“Interdimensional Invocations is bursting at the seams with screaming leads and hooky melodies all over the place, constantly flying over the blast heavy necromancy underneath.” – Lair of the Bastard
Mixed by Joe Cincotta (Obituary, Suffocation), the group’s fourth overall release reveals a mature, otherworldly sound that is vaguely reminiscent of Death, Bal-Sagoth, and Emperor. Xoth appeals not only to the aficionado of complex time signatures, key changes and melodic composition, but also to the good ‘ol heavy metal enthusiast. Thematically, Xoth mixes themes including sci-fi, ancient mysteries, emerging catastrophes, and social commentary, lined with a layer of humor that is as magnetic as it is unsettling.

Since their debut in 2014, Seattle’s Xoth has continually spewed their unique brand of extreme metal upon unsuspecting listeners to great pleasure and critical acclaim.
Appearing on festivals including Northwest Terror Fest and sharing the stage with bands including Voivod, Napalm Death, and Marduk, Xoth has consistently turned heads and expanded their cult-like following throughout the West Coast and beyond.
With the release of their second full-length, Interdimensional Invocations, Xoth reveals a fully mature sound and a vivid imagination that is oddly familiar and refreshingly original at the same time. Shredding dual guitars, pummeling drums, speed chopper bass, and diverse vocals all dance together in disgusting harmony with magnificent mixing by Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studios (Obituary, Suffocation), and masterful mastering by Julian Silva (On Air Mastering).
While Xoth blends a wide range of influences from across the metal universe and beyond, their sound can best be described as a death-match between Bal-Sagoth, Death, Akercocke, Obscura, Emperor, and Absu…..in space. Xoth appeals not only to the aficionado of complex time signatures, key changes and melodic composition, but also to the good ‘ol heavy metal enthusiast.
Thematically, Xoth mixes themes including sci-fi, ancient mysteries, emerging catastrophes, and social commentary, lined with a layer of humor that is as magnetic as it is unsettling. If you’re looking for the perfect soundtrack to a once-futuristic dystopia that is quickly becoming an inevitable reality, look no further.
