Xul Comments On Upcoming EP

Brutal Western Canadian death metallers Xul are currently offering their "Malignance" album as a free download via Bandcamp here. The band has also checked in with the following update on an upcoming new EP:

"We are happy to announce some of the details regarding our EP. First of all, It will feature a track called 'Summon the Swarm,' which we have played live now for quite some time. There will also be three other tracks on the EP. Each of the songs has their own elements that make them unique and we feel it really shows the progression of our musicianship.

"We will be recording with Jeff Bryan once again to maintain the high quality we had on Malignance. There’s not a whole lot more I can say, but we are extremely excited to head into the studio again in such a short period of time. These are the best songs we have to date and a lot of emotion and time has been spent! We will keep you updated along the journey… until then… Pilsner and METAL!"

Pit Stories: Xul's Mudslide Party

Every week we check in with fans and bands from around the world to get their favorite pit and road stories from metal shows.

This week Canadian blackened death metal act Xul shares the following story of a small town suddenly hosting a party as bad weather prevented travel:

We had a mini tour lined up that consisted of Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton shows in the span of 4 days. Living in Vernon (half way between Vancouver and Calgary) we went to Van for our first show. It was an awesome turnout and and a good set. A good start to the tour. We had a day off before we had to head to Calgary so we decided to go back to Vernon and sleep a night in our own beds. There was talk of HWY 1 being closed but we didn't think it was going to be a big deal. We were wrong.

We woke up the next morning early enough to check the weather reports before we headed out. All that was said was that HWY 1 was closed due to mudslides and that there was no timeline for its opening. HWY 1 is a direct route to Calgary. It’s about an 8 hr drive from Vernon. I'd say it would have taken us 9 because we're riding in a short bus that hits a top speed of 90km. It was early in the morning and we had to make a quick decision as we had to be in Calgary that night for a show. We could either go south and take a ferry but there was rumours it was closed due to the extreme weather (we later found out it would have been a horrible idea) or head north and go through Jasper then down from Edmonton to Calgary. We chose to go North.
