Swizz dark metal group Xaon, entered the studio at the dawn of 2017 with respected and talented french drummer Jordan Kiefer to record their first album. The new record takes the band’s sound to a new sonic level, progressing from spectral ambiances to grandiose and intricate orchestrations. The album evolves from oppressing aggressiveness to majestic lamentations and due to it’s very nature, it is soberly entitled The Drift.

The album was by recorded and mixed by Rob Carson at Studio du Lac in January/February 2017 and mastered by Brett Caldas-Lima at Tower Studio. The album art was designed by Chris Kiesling from Misanthropic-Art.
