Artist discography


X-WORLD/5 was added to the rock scene in 2008, with vocalist Nils K Rue (PAGAN´S MIND), Big Swede (drums), Andy La Roque (KING DIAMOND) and finally Magnus Rosén (HAMMERFALL) who seems to be everywhere in the music business these days. He´s like a energized bunny and it feels like he´s working with music 26 hours a day.

X-WORLD/5 delivers a modern kind of progressive hard rock and metal, and if I´d have to compare them to one single band it would be QUEENSRYCHE. However, the sound is more hi-tech oriented and also heavier. Maybe also more power metal based, since the drumming is more static with not so much variation as could be desired. I guess you will totally dig this if you feel QUENSRYCHE could do with a more modern approach and a slightly rawer outfit. Then X-WORLD/5 is your band! Among my favourite songs are the opener "Cyberchrist" and "Stand up". It´s a decent CD but still I expected a bit more...

Tracklisting 1. Cyber Christ
2. Man Machine
3. Charge To War
4. Stand Up
5. A Cryptic Message
6. Crooked Cross
7. Lunar Voyage
8. Argonaut
9. New Eden
