XSOZ is a noise/experimental project formed in early 2007, delivering cold mechanical beats and manipulating dark, distorted soundscapes. Also being one of the main persons behind Spectraliquid, John Raptis made his first steps with Spectral Sun. Times changed, Spectral Sun died..... XSOZ (along with Subheim and Mobthrow) arised from its ashes. His first album "Basic Topology" was released in 2008 by Fich-art. Since then, John has been active with completing remixes for other artists and contributing music to compilations. His second album was released in 2011.
