XEROSUN are a five piece metal band located in Dublin, Ireland and are comprised of Fiachra Kelly (Guitars), Gareth Jeffs (Guitars), Damien Dziennik (Drums) and Martyna Halas (Vocals).
Combining an eclectic mix of influences, XEROSUN produce a melodic, powerful, aggressive and above all, original sound. Crossing the boundaries of heavy music with soaring and passionate vocals, they have carved a place for themselves in modern metal. Honing their song writing skills and live performance, the band quickly became recognised on the local scene in Ireland and these efforts culminated in the band making their live television début to an audience of 500,000 people on a national TV station.
Following this, XEROSUN played as the sole support act to the mighty Avenged Sevenfold on the Irish leg of their world tour. The sold-out gig held in Dublin's famous Olympia Theatre saw a very receptive and engaged crowd singing along to XEROSUNs lyrics and chanting for more.
19th December 2011 saw the band releasing their début album "Absence of Light", and it gathered fantastic praise from both the metal and mainstream press alike. It was awarded the maximum 5 out of 5 by UK's Black Velvet Magazine who described it as a "...dark sounding industrial monster... drawn together brilliantly and magnificently done". Kerrang! magazine praised it as "...atmospherically intense..." & "...hookily brilliant...", awarding it three K’s. UK Metal Hammer magazine named it "...a killer record..." with "...a great deal of ingenuity and some stunning tunes..." awarding it 7/10 and Irish Hot Press Magazine called it "...a melodic molten slab of heavy metal that immediately evokes the thunder..." and awarded it 4/5. The album contains exclusive artwork provided by famed metal artist Seth Siro Anton, who's works adorn other metal greats such as Paradise Lost, Soilwork, Caliban, Septicflesh and Kamelot. The album can be purchased on-line from the band's xerosun.com/shop, iTunes, Amazon and all good retailers.
After extensive touring and gigging, the band set about writing their second album, and quickly went on to release a much praised video for a new song "Anatomy of a Lie". This fully featured HD video paved the way for a support slot offered with American band In This Moment, but due to unfortunate circumstances ITM had to cancel.
In 2015 the second album, a concept album titled "In the Presence of Darkness" will be released in the late summer, with an EP "Seek the Blood" due in Spring. A brand new song from the EP called "I Spared Hundreds" is set for release on 2nd March 2015. Meanwhile, the band will be gearing up for tours in Ireland, UK and Europe. XEROSUN are set to conquer the world one crushing, melodic step at a time.
