Xombie is releasing their debut full-length album, Swaggaholix: Deluxe Edition! No strangers to the NYC concert circuit, Xombie is a flawless stream of metal influences and gut-wrenching guitar solos topped with hip hop vocals to create a new genre they have dubbed “Hood Metal.” Adam Cruz is the front man with rhymes, backed by Roy Gavlan and Rob “Fish” Fishkin adding some serious power with metal vocals and guitars. Mike Martabano adds heaviness on bass, and the very talented Rob “Bangers” Patierno on drums.
In the past three years, Xombie has written some of the most innovative music to hit the alternative scene, harkening back to the sounds of Rage Against The Machine and Linkin Park in the late 90s. With two independently released EP’s under their belt, the eponymous “Xombie” in 2010 and “Swaggaholix” in 2011, Xombie is announcing that the band will be re-releasing the tracks from both of these records on their debut full-length LP Swaggaholix: Deluxe Edition due for release on February 1, 2012.
