ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Xavier Xerxes set out to create a straight-forward heavy metal album with a back to the basics approach to produce the most powerful and moving songs he has ever written. It is heavy, it is rocking, and it is meaningful. Xavier Xerxes touches on non-trivial topics such as abuse, oppression, alcoholism/addiction, mental illnesses, and recovery delivered with emotionally expressive vocal performances. The unconventional frenetic guitar style he is known for shines in all the appropriate places and the sound is energetic and heavy. This is something special.
