XEROSUN are a four piece Metal band hailing from Dublin, Ireland. They are Guitar players Fiachra Kelly & Gareth Jeffs, Drummer Darrin Bell and Bass & Vocals Ivan O’Sullivan. Combining an eclectic mix of influences, Xerosun produce a melodic, powerful, aggressive and above all, original sound. Founded in 2003, Xerosun began cutting it's teeth by gigging relentlessly across Ireland and England. As time progressed, the crafting of their sound and vision continued with the expansion into the realms of music videos, shot to coincide with two EP releases. Their efforts culminating in the band making it's live television début to an audience of 500,000 people on an Irish national television channel. Crossing the boundaries of heavy music with soaring and passionate vocals, Xerosun has carved a place for themselves in modern metal. Their début album “Absence of Light” was awarded the maximum 5 out of 5 by the UK’s Black Velvet Magazine who described it as a “…dark sounding industrial monster… drawn together brilliantly and magnificently done”. The album can be purchased on-line at http://www.xerosun.com in a limited edition digipak with stunning artwork provided by Seth Siro Anton who's portfolio includes the likes of Paradise Lost, Soilwork and Kamelot. Xerosun recorded a version of Paradise Lost's seminal, Gothic metal classic 'True Belief'. It pricked the ears of Paradise Lost's Guitarist, Gregor Mackintosh, who wrote to the band voicing his approval saying "Cracking cover lads, made me feel very nostalgic". November 2010 saw Xerosun playing support to the mighty Avenged Sevenfold on the Irish leg of their world tour. The sold-out gig held in Dublin's famous Olympia Theater saw a very receptive and engaged crowd singing lyrics and chanting for Xerosun. It has been quoted by an Avenged Sevenfold Fan Page as being rather difficult to impress the A7X die hard fans. With a strong, grass-roots support in the US college radio circuit and a fast growing fan base in Europe, XEROSUN are set to conquer the world one crushing, melodic step at a time.
