Swiss Dark Metal band XAON have released a lyric video for How We Become Ephemeral Birds, a song from forthcoming EP Face of Balaam. Check out the video below:

XAON will release its debut EP Face of Balaam on October 16, 2016. The official video for first single Discrowned, featuring vocals by SOILWORK‘s Björn “Speed” Strid, can be viewed at this location or below:

Brilliant melodies combine with the aggression of Death Metal throughout Face of Balaam, yet that description doesn’t quite do justice to the range of styles influencing the sound of XAON. Consider the contributions of legendary acts like ANATHEMA, TYPE O NEGATIVE, MY DYING BRIDE, SOILWORK, DEMONICAL, ULVER, and even Finnish act DISGRACE’s early to mid 90s output and you’ll get the picture.

Face of Balaam was produced and arranged by band members Vinc and Flo, recorded between June and August 2015, mixed and mastered by Julian at Parallel Focus Studios. Vocals engineered by Rob Carson at Carsonian Sound Solutions. All vocals, except “Discrowned,” were performed by Franco-American singer Rob Carson. Samples on “How we become Ephemeral Birds” and “Discrowned” by J.-P. Lana. The album artwork was  created by Californian artist and painter Erik Burton Kirchner.
