MXD – “Endurance” – Indus-Metal from Switzerland
MXD – “Endurance”
1 November 2019
Whereas many contemporary groups have by now imploded or crashed into the swamps of boblivion, MXD is celebrating their 7th album “Endurance”, after 22 years of good and loyal
service. The band consists of Drop (Samael, ex-Sybreed), Duja, Solex and Steph (ex-Sybreed, Furia, Science of Disorder).
But one could also say good and loyal abuse, such is this “Endurance” twisted, bewildering, startling and sometimes tormented. Nevertheless endowed with that grim elegance and mmultifaceted creativity securing for MXD the reputation of remaining totally unique and unclassifiable among groups of today.
Meandering through the intricacies of a powerful and rusting organic industrial metal, retro-futuristic electro reminiscences digitalise a dark and rocky poetry, playing by ear through convolutions of a nebulous state of limbo of blues, stoner, punk, pop or rap. A vice-ridden nitroglycerinated and apocalyptic mayhem confirming the mischievous nihilistic moto of this ghost ship : “Nowhere Forever”.
Endurance is a state of mind. That of MXD. An Eternal Dying Life Fire.
