Impressive blackened death metal (or is it deathened black metal?) from a 5 piece outta Canada calling themselves Xul. Nothing incredibly groundbreaking here, especially considering the increase of black/death hybrid metal bands in recent times, but everything is superbly executed here - vocals are a proper blend of well mastered growls and screeches across both black and death metal styles, pretty ripping double kickdrum effort along with top notch drumming across the board, some notable riffs thrown in for good measure. So if the blackened death or deathened black metal sound is at all anything you're into, you are definitely going to enjoy this. I'll definitely be listening to it again.
