XT was founded in 1991 by Björn Stigsson (Leviticus) and Sonny Larsson (Motherlode). The band debuted the following year with the self-titled album XT, which was a melodic hard rock album. The next album was released in 1993 with the title Taxfree. The band now chose a ’heavier’ sound, without sacrificing the powerful melodies. The song ”The Silent Cry” from Taxfree was awarded as the most powerful song of the year by Aftonbladet, Sweden’s biggest evening newspaper with 3.5 million readers. XT’s third and last album Extended Empire was released in 1995 and the band now chose an even more ’heavier’ and more experimental sound. By the end of 1995, XT made their last performance and have not been active for the last 22 years. The XT albums were released worldwide and sold very well, especially in Japan. In the spring of 2017 the band announced their comeback and at the end of October their new album Saved By The Blood will be released. This is an album with heavy sound and powerful melodies. The single I will follow You was released in late September and the video for this song will be released in October. The album Saved By The Blood will be released as both CD and vinyl. Today, the band besides Björn and Sonny also consists of Peter Carlsohn (Jerusalem), Dan Tibell (Jerusalem) and Mick Nordström (Modest Attraction).
