- Part II of the AMDBL 'alphabet' -
'XEN' PROMO CLIP:
“(Insanity) is not hubris, not pride; it is inflation of the ego to its ultimate - confusion between him who worships and that which is worshipped. Man has not eaten God; God has eaten man.”
Philip K. Dick
The Man in the High Castle (1962)
A counterpart to their debut album ‘Force Fed Enlightenment’ – 'Xen' stands as Part II of the AMDBL ‘alphabet’ – and a statement of serious intent to offer up something fresh and sinister to the musical ether. The world will soon know change... Xen is believing.
