X. Kernel Premieres “Kingdom of Pain”




A self released EP, Kingdom Of Pain, appeared in 2013, giving a first taste of what X.Kernel were capable of and now – after several line-up changes and four years of hard work – we have the full realisation of the X.Kernel vision. Face The Truth is here… Once the gates to this twilight kingdom have been thrown open there is no turning back and an exhilarating journey through the shadows begins. Guitar leads spiral upwards through rich, dark riffs, while keyboards scatter starlight across a sombre sky full of purple thunderclouds, propelled through the night by the mountainous bass and drums. The vocals combine soaring, emotive singing with savage snarls and bestial roars and everything is infused with a spirit of musical adventure and powerful emotion.

By combining a mastery of established forms with a fresh and expansive outlook, marrying depth and emotion to technical skill and adorning their work with imagination and a sense of adventure, X.Kernel have forged an album that will capture hearts, minds and souls with its arrival on the field of battle.


Here is a premiere of X. Kernel’s single “Kingdom of Pain”  take a listen and enjoy this sneak peak of their brutal album.


This is what the band had to weight in on their new album coming out on April 7th, 2017:

“‘Face the Truth’ is really important album for us because, apart from being our debut release, it also summarizes all the long journey we went through during it’s creation. Its dark sound, pulsing rhythms and depressive lyrics externalize twists in mind caused by terror, anxiety and despair pouncing a person facing his future a moment after fatal step, just like the first presented track ‘Kingdom of Pain’.”-X. Kernel
