XAON. An elusive name born amidst Switzerland's highest mountains. Never
quite fitting in any of the numerous galleries metal has to offer,
drifting through the extremes whilst
juxtaposing finesse and vehemence from an unworldly orchestra, endlessly
exploring the vast echoic gloominess of the human mind.
only a few short years, the combo led by Vincent Zermatten (guitars) and
Rob Carson (vocals/orchestrations) has managed to tour the world
through the release of their critically acclaimed debut album “The
Drift”, notably across Europe with gothic metal monsters SIRENIA and
folk metal legends TYR, in Japan with OBSCURA and ARCHSPIRE, in the US
with THE VEER UNION, and sharing the stage in festivals across Europe
with bands such as MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, GOJIRA, PARADISE LOST,
ELUVEITIE and many more.
In 2019, XAON is back with their 2nd
album somberly entitled “Solipsis” available through Mighty Music,
bringing the band's grandiose aggressiveness to a whole new level,
pummeling their way through a cataclysmic atmosphere while reaching a
new majestic apotheosis. This new album debuted on April 12th and
received raging reviews from the press. It took the band on the road
across Europe with SEPTICFLESH and KRISIUN while continuing to prove
itself as an upcoming force around the Metal world.
