Xanthochroid biography
Founded in 2005, XANTHOCHROID is a Lake Forest, California based progressive symphonic black metal act with a focus on epic melodies and conceptual lyrical themes. With a diverse range of influences including IHSAHN, BORKNAGAR, OPETH and MOONSORROW, this band incorporates elements of the aforementioned acts into their own palette of melodic extreme metal with grandiose majestic passages with technical flair segueing into soothing ambiance and acoustic moments. They also utilize a wide range of vocal deliveries, including harsh rasps, growls and soaring clean vocals reminiscent of VINTERSORG.

After releasing a demo in 2010, their first EP, ''Incultus'' saw the light of day in 2011. On December 21st, 2012 they released their first full length album, ''Blessed He With Boils'', further developing their complex themes both musically and lyrically, and recruiting the strong engineering skills of Jens BOGREN. The current lineup includes Sam MEADOR on keyboards, acoustic guitars and vocals, Matthew EARL on drums, percussion and flute, Bryan HUIZENGA on bass, Brent VALLEFUOCO on guitars and David BODENHOEFER also on guitars.

Review by Pieromcdo

5 stars What an amazing album probably the best in extreme prog I hear so far this is a requiem a la Opeth with more of a classical side with chord and many different instruments it is just perfect from the smooth soft side to they extreme side Ps there is some growth voice her and there is the rage and the beauty all mix in a perfect matter I got the chance to her a bit off that on bandcamp and it was instant love got both of there album JUST a BIG wow if your a fan of Opeth and you have and open mind for classic music this is a must Just wow wow wow
