Xantam, Sounds like they’re from Scandinavia. Wait a minute, this is American? America can still make quality death metal? Wait a minute… this.. is.. a .. one.. man… band and it’s not black metal.. and it doesn’t suck? FUCK YEAH!

Xantam‘s LifeDeathBeyond demo is raw and hellish. You can hear A LOT of influence from the only Darkthrone album that matters on this demo. If you really have to ask, yes I am talking about Soulside Journey. There is just an ominous presence on this demo that reeks of old school.  Not sure why but I cannot stop listening to this demo.

I really want to hear a full album from Xantam the Beholder because this is great death metal that kills the speculation and stereotypes the rest of the world hears our american death metal as.
