Whereas many contemporary bands have by now imploded or crashed into the swamps of oblivion, MXD is celebrating their 7th album « Endurance », after 22 years of good and loyal service.
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 multifaceted creativity securing for MXD the reputation of remaining totally unique and unclassifiable among bands 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.
