Brilliant melodies combine with the aggression of Death Metal throughout "Face of Balaam," yet that description doesn't quite do justice to the range of styles influencing the sound of XAON. Consider the contributions of legendary acts like Anathema, Type O Negative, My Dying Bride, Soilwork, Demonical, Ulver and even Disgrace's early-to-mid 90s output, and you'll get the picture.

The track listing is:

1. How We Become Ephemeral Birds
2. Discrowned
3. When the Everlasting Gardens Die Away
4. The Soulcleaner
5. Veins like Burned Trees (The Awe That Walketh in Obscurity, Part 1)
