UK-based experimental progressive metal outfit Xerath gave an exclusive premiere of “Nuclear Self Eradication” to the fine folks at Gun Shy Assassin.  “Nuclear Self Eradication” is the eighth track off the band’s upcoming new studio offering “II”, set for release in North America via Candlelight Records on May 3, 2011.

Said bassist Chris Clark of the song: “‘Nuclear Self Eradication’ is one of the most brutal and aggressive offerings from “II”. As heavy as it is technical, it offers a definitive guide to the key elements and ideology of Xerath. The track also features a guest solo from Daath guitarist, Emil Werstler.”

Xerath was originally formed in 2007 as an experiment to combine film score composition with extreme groove-based heavy metal. Now a fully functional band with an emphasis on the live stage, Xerath aim to remain on the cutting edge of extreme. Metal Hammer hailed the band for sounding like, “the result of a chaotic experiment to produce the ultimate please-them-all 21st century metal band,” while Blistering added to the sentiment noting, ‘once you have your head wrapped around the gravitational strength of Xeraths chug-enforced labyrinthine rhythms and beats, you can sit back and wonder at the sense they make and what compelling fantasy they create”. “II” features artwork from Colin Marks (Strapping Young Lad, Nevermore, Scar Symmetry).
