The Metal Wanderlust premieres smashing track by Italian death metallers XPUS

Death metal band Xpus from Italy have created a form of dark and pummelling death metal that doesn’t owe too much to one type of band. They’ve taken the best elements of a few sub-styles to create the best expression where this kind of music goes. US site The Metal Wanderlust premiered a brand new song AT THIS LINK.

“Utter magnificence. Death, Black, what the fuck ever you want to call it, Xpus are making an incredibly massive statement this year, that being “Look the fuck out, we have arrived”, and I for one welcome them with open arms, and maybe a sacrificial gift or three. You have been warned, evil is coming”

Xpus from Italy are invoking the ghosts of the dark and harrowing bands that surfaced in the ’90s such as Morbid AngelDeicideIncantation and Sinister, but obviously channeling it through their intensified, dense sound that makes it somewhat unique and frightening. There’s palpable dark energy in this band’s execution and none of it is blurred from chaos, rather it’s brilliantly enunciated and fleshed out for maximum impact. With artwork from the acclaimed artist Misanthropic Art bringing to life their cryptic, graveyard-crawling death metal, the packaging furthermore receives a shot in the arm because of the unique and probably never before done before glow-in-the-dark effect. This is pummelling, dark death metal that doesn’t nod off and makes sure its grip on you keeps tightening.
