Human Extinction Engine now on BandCamp

Human Extinction Engine the split LP with Bastard Noise is now live on the Xiphoid Dementia BandCamp page.
Originally released on Scry Recordings, Existence Establishment, Terror, and Phage Tapes February 2019. 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.
Conceptually both artists unite in seeing a world where humans slowly tighten the noose around their own neck through “advancement” and “industry”. Yet each artist reflects this concept in very different ways.
On side A Xiphoid Dementia …

Secular Hymns Now Available on BandCamp

Released as a CD on Malignant Records in 2012 Secular Hymns is the follow up to Xiphoid Dementia’s landmark sophomore offering Might Is Blight. Demonstrating a more refined sound and expanding on stylistic efforts explored in previous releases Secular Hymns is yet another triptych on the dark journey of the project.

Moving somewhere in between dark-ambient and industrial-noise “Secular Hymns” is an opus that catches the attention for its impressive arsenal of sounds and noises that have been used. But the main characteristic of the release concerns the global …

Xiphoid Dementia – Prison of Hope LP Reviews

From Musique Machine:
Long awaited LP follow-up to 2012’s Secular Hymns, Divergent Series unleashes Xiphoid Dementia’s latest, Prison of Hope.

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.
Emerging from the low, oily murk, the bubbling synths that open up Prison of Hope propel the track forward, while at the same time …
