Departing from and adding to his sound from his recent split with Bastard Noise, Xiphoid Dementia melds together cinematic grandeur, industrial urgency, bleak ambient, and almost pop sensibilities.

EE21: XIPHOID DEMENTIA / BASTARD NOISE – HUMAN EXTINCTION ENGINE LP

*purchase this from the shop*

Human Extinction Engine is a split record between the throttling yet textured death industrial of Xiphoid Dementia and the harsh space ambience of Bastard Noise.
