Wednesday, 1st August 2018, 12:15 p.m. at Wacken, Schleswig Holstein, North Germany. Wacken Metal Battle Final has started, some early birds are already in front of the tent stage, sipping on their first beer – and completely become mesmerized by four men and a woman entering the stage and unleashing a storm of catharsis. Those five people are Xenoblight, representing Denmark in this worldwide contest, and though their music is not for the sensitive they manage to hunt down place four.
We have been at that memorable gig and knew from the very first riff on: This band is so nocturnal and evil, so badass still unique, long story short: They are completely Out Of Line. This part is official from now on, and the debut album „Procreation“ on CD and Vinyl is a start that is really worth it. Bands such as Behemoth, Morbid Angel, Melechesh, Black Daliah Murder, Nevermore, Gojira, Death, Mayhem or Deströyer666 are part of a sound hard to categorize stilistically combining weird harmonics with thundershot riffs and hard-hitting riffs, always lead by the rabid screams of frontwoman Marika Hyldmar. The songs crawl out of the boxes relentlessly linking the abyssic of Death Metal with the wickedness of Black Metal ruptured again and again by Grooves and Chords of the new Prog generation. It is this what gives the music this unbelievably mad but the more delightful note.
