Black metallers Xanthochroid are about to release their second full length album called Of Erthe And Axen. The band is currently in the pre-production phases, where they're compiling ideas, practicing and recording demo tracks. Another Xanthochroid album is on the way to follow Blessed He With Boils. The album is expected to be released in the Fall/Winter of 2014.

Their previous releases can be heard at Bandcamp, if you are curious.




Vocalist/keyboardist Sam Meador had this to say about the upcoming release: "I'm really excited to finally be working on this album; some of the thematic material we are working with has been floating around for 7 years. It feels great to be solidifying and realizing these themes that I have been wanting to record for so long. Furthermore, this album is going to feature more input from other members of the band. Matthew (drummer/producer) and I worked very closely together on Blessed He With Boils, but this album will include more of his musical ideas as well as other members of the band (Brent, Bryan, and David)."

On the new album's sound: "So far, the guitar riffs in particular are much more raw sounding than on Blessed He; they seem colder, more drawn out and atmospheric. Conversely, our orchestrations are going to be much more articulate this time around thanks to some new software; as well as more study into counterpoint and orchestration."

On the lyrical content: "The lyrics again will focus on the fantasy concept we have developed in the last two releases. The story on this album takes place before Blessed He and before Incultus. It describes Thanos and Ereptor as young men, and the struggles they faced growing up, growing apart, and realizing their destinies."

Matthew Earl had this to say about the upcoming album: "The new album is going to be totally fine. It will sound completely acceptable, and will be available for purchase at some point for an amount of money."
