Metal Rules reviews Xerosun at Monsters of Rot V

Filed under: Reviews.
Last minute additions Xerosun (who replaced Guttrench) immediately hit the crowd with vocalist Martyna Halas-Yeates’ extraordinary voice, much to their delight. Their entire set is a master class in metal, from the band’s heavy chugging grooves and Halas-Yeates’ bogglingly versatile vocals. She prowls the stage crooning and growling like a lioness and proceeds to simply blow everyone away. They wrap up their set with ‘Repent, Rewind, Reset’ and leave the stage having undoubtedly recruited several new fans.

Planet Mosh review Xerosun at Monsters Of Rot V

Having been drafted in at a few day’s notice, following the last minute withdrawals of first Hollow Truth and then Guttrench, Dublin’s Xerosun (10) proceed to rip the heads off everyone present, especially with Martyna’s incredible range, which varies from the darkest, most brutal of death metal growls to the butterfly harmony of her upper range. The band themselves deliver their melodic and precise death metal with passion and accuracy. By Mark Ashby for Planet Mosh, Monsters of Rot V, Letterbreen 01/08/2015

Belfast Metalheads Review for Xerosun at Blazefest 2015

Filed under: Reviews.
“We'd already had one female fronted act with Selene, but the Empire was about to face an onslaught from Dublin's Xerosun. Producing vocal lines that ranged from growls, roars and sweet melodies Martyna scared the sweet shit out of some of the more tender-hearted present. The rest just basked in the brilliance. As a package this is a well-balanced band, with Fiachra and Jeff's guitar work giving the right amount of breath to each track to avoid the pitfall of sameness. And, that variety worked throughout the set with Damien and Marcin working hard to create a solid platform throughout.” By Jonathan Traynor, Belfast Metalheads Reunited

Blazefest review of Xerosun live

“Next band Xerosun I know turned a few heads, I have been following them for a few years and knew the direction change they had taken. this is a band who are full of power and force. Marcin and Damian as the rhythm section provide skill and power to the songs, Fiachra and Gareth provided the power and melody with the fretwork (including an 8 string guitar!!!) and Martyna provided the talking point of the night. Most people seeing her come on stage were thinking it was more symphonic metal, well how wrong they were. This lady has seriously powerful lungs and a growl from the bowels of hell! Think Arch Enemy. A great set by our Dublin friends!” By Darren Shields-Pettit, Blazefest organiser

Planetmosh review of Xerosun live at Blazefest 2015

By Xerosun Monday, 30th March 2015 | 0 comments
Filed under: Reviews.
“Dublin’s Xerosun not only come from south of the border but also somewhat out of left field with their groove-fuelled death metal vibe. Martyna Halas’ mix of harsh and clean vocals is as acerbic as it is challenging: one second she is summoning demons from the depths of hell, the next she is cavorting with angels in a mead-induced metallic frenzy, with the total contrast between her death growls and dark alto ironically seemless in their collective integration. Behind her, massive melodies and huge hooks combine with brutal backbeats and crunching, grinding riffs; the sound deceives with the evil simplicity of its dense groove, with the surprisingly sparse drum patterns all the more effective for being so, while the twin guitar harmonies are faultless. The only previous occasion on which Xerosun appeared in Belfast, they played to three people: when they next return (to Voodoo on Friday May 29) no doubt they will pack the place to the rafters!” By Mark Ashby, Planetmosh
