Xion from Borlänge, Sweden has in the past year been the source of many dropped jaws among their steadily growing audience. Their enormous playing skills, energetic stage shows, and total interplay combined with exceptionally well-written songs have made the band, which established their current lineup in 2022, become the band on everyone’s lips in the metal scene of Sweden. The young quintet is described as the most promising Swedish metal band in 15 years in Sweden and was recently awarded a rating of 9 out of 10 in Sweden Rock Magazine after a concert.
Xion’s history begins in connection with a school concert when the then 13-year-old Johan Berg and Erik Zetterström formed the band. In 2021, Berg and Zetterström started jamming with drummer Algot Brask and then discovered what a tight interaction the three had.
The trio played a concert together with the current singer Robin Björk’s sister, who later introduced Robin to the band. At Björk’s first audition, he arrived hungover and several hours late, but thanks to his extreme singing ability, the others were impressed and his place in the band as one of Swedens best and most dynamic hard rock singers was confirmed. Looking for a second guitarist, the band soon found Liam Rådman – the final piece of the puzzle in Xion’s 2023 lineup.

Thrash Metal attack HOSTILIA from Gothenburg (Sweden) was formed by the brothers Albert and William Lindeblad in the fall of 2021. Their first single “Power Out” came out at the end of the year, followed by a second one called “Downtown Showdown” in 2022.
The singles immediately caught the attention of the metal community, generating lots of playlist additions, great reviews and an increased international interest in the band. Meanwhile the reputation of HOSTILIA as a killer live act started to grow.
Just before the release of their latest EP “Atomic Thunder” (2023), vocalist Samuel Alnesten Alvarez left the band – only to be replaced by a frontman extraordinaire: Tim Angelini!
HOSTILIA consists of Tim Angelini (Vocals), William Lindeblad (Guitar), Walter Hamilton (Guitar), Gabriel Sepúlveda (Bass) and Albert Lindeblad (Drums).
A single presenting the new lineup will be released soon!
