Album Of The Week: Crossfaith’s “Xeno” Will Take You On A Metallic, Noisy Thrill Ride


The future is right now for Japan’s metalcore genre-smashers Crossfaith. I was first introduced to the band just before Warped Tour 2013, and though I missed Letlive to see them (talk about sad), I don’t regret it at all. The band put on the set of the day (next to While She Sleeps), and 2 years later, I never forgot the band. How could anyone who witnesses their enthralling, pulse-pounding live show ever lose sight of Crossfaith?

Even better, Crossfaith’s got a new album out, Xeno. For the uninitiated, Xeno is the perfect introduction to the band. Combining elements of rock, metal, electronica, drum&bass, and several more, they’re more than your typical “electronicore” band. Fans of intense, electronic-driven metal will find Crossfaith to be more than passable – they’ll often find Xeno to be exceptional, especially on tracks like “Devil’s Party”, “Tears Fall”, and “Ghost In The Mirror” (featuring Caleb Shomo of Beartooth).

Check out the full album after the jump, and be sure to leave us your thoughts on the album.
