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. Continually impossible to pigeonhole, Egan Budd (Existence Establishment, Headstone Brigade) rolls out the big guns for his full length return. 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 …

Headstone Brigade – Divine Vestiges FREE EP now available!

We would like to introduce Headstone Brigade which is the new folk project of Egan Budd/Xiphoid Dementia with this free downloadable and streaming EP featuring covers and traditional arrangements of folk songs. Headstone Brigade’s sound can be described as neofolk or melodramatic pop with a sea shanty twist due to the main instrument of accordion being featured in almost all tracks. This free EP is a precursor to a full-length which is coming later this year on Brave Mysteries.
Please check out the EP Divine Vestiges over at Headstone Brigade’s bandcamp …
