xDEATHSTARx /ˈdɛθstɑr/ was an American Christian metalcore band from Redlands, California. All of the members are straight edge and they incorporate both Christian and straight edge themes within their music, with their view of the loss of values in modern society. The group released its first album in 2004[1] and is currently signed to Facedown Records.[2] xDEATHSTARx has recorded two full length albums[3] and two independent EPs on independent record labels, including Facedown Records, Life Sentence Records, and I Witness Media. The band features three full time vocalists as well as a total three guitarists; one of which is bass.[4] They have appeared on The Discovery Channel’s Jesse James' Monster Garage.[2] In 2008, they released a remastered version of their debut album, which had been out of print.[5] In March 2009 the band announced they were breaking up and moving on their separate ways.[6]

It is rumored that the band members are vegans[7] as its bio mentions a "ThanksVegan" feast in Redlands, CA.;[8] In March 2009, the band announced that their final show would take place on April 4 at Facedown Fest 2009 in California.[9]

All of the members of Sleeping Giant (band), were former members of xDEATHSTARx
