ABOUT THE BAND
Drawing influences from a wide range of hard rock bands, Xelerate deliver songs with elements of traditional metal, progressive rock, melodic- and blues rock.
The band was formed in 2010 and released its debut album Shitkickers in 2012. Three years later the band followed up with the EP Pretty Dirty. Songs on these two releases rely heavily on classic riffing in the style of Motörhead and AC/DC, throwing in a fair share of punk rock energy in the mix.
The 2019 album Amplify This! represented a change in musical direction for the band. Line up changes and new song writing constellations resulted in a versatile album, stuffed with melodic hard rock anthems and classic rock.
