Brutal Western Canadian death band XUL whom are in studio recording their follow up EP to their debut album Malignance which available for FREE DOWNLOAD here. XUL are proud to reveal to fans their new logo.
“We knew at some point during our time together that we would end up changing our logo. This is the third time our logo has changed, but this time, we believe it will be permanent. Bill Ferguson our guitarist created the other two using graph paper, so we decided to get the new logo done professionally. It coincides with our growth not only as musicians, but as a group, as we have spent a lot of time together over the past four years. Artist Chris Horst did an excellent job and we think it turned out awesome. It keeps the theme of our old logo but brings some new complementary elements together as well. This will make for a somewhat simple transition from old logo, to new. This is a new chapter in our musical journey and to document it, we felt this was the best decision, we hope everyone digs it!” – vocalist Levi Meyers
If you’re a fan of Behemoth, Dissection and Immortal this is one album not to be missed as the band forges their brand of Blackened Death Metal.

A five piece group based out of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, following in the footsteps of bands such as: Behemoth, Dissection, and Immortal, XUL have left the beaten path and set out to forge their own brand of Blackened Death Metal.
An energetic and interactive live performance – with crushing rhythms seamlessly coalescing into atmospheric passages, accompanied by punishing percussion waves and subtle vocal harmonies – expands upon the previously established essence of the sub-genre. With songs reminiscent of war-torn landscapes, destructive human nature and evil intent, XUL has captivated audiences and garnered positive reviews, and on June 16, 2012, released their first full length album, entitled Malignance.
Driven by determination and a diverse accumulation of musical comprehension, XUL has toured Western Canada, as well as proven themselves worthy to share the stage with bands such as: Obscura, Exhumed, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire and 3 Inches of Blood. With a spring 2013 tour looming, XUL is determined to build on an impressive local following by infecting Western Canada with hopes of Canada in its entirety in the near future. XUL’s focus for winter 2012 is to meticulously craft new material for another release in 2013.
