Crossfaith To Release New Album “Ex_Machina” In August

Crossfaith have announced that their new album “Ex_Machina” will be released on August 3. According to a press release, the effort is “a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones — as explained in the opening title track, ‘Deus Ex Machina’.” It goes on to say “the other 12 songs featured on the album represent the voice of the resistance — in the form of underdogs known as Demons.” If you missed it, the first single “The Perfect Nightmare” can be found HERE.

Vocalist Kenta “Ken” Koie commented:

“After we released our last album ‘Xeno’, we were thinking about what the next theme is for us. We decided on ‘awake the individuality,’ because we’re always trying to make new things and that’s a big part of the band’s attitude.

“This album is a grave warning for our future. I hope you guys listen to this and think about what the meaning of this album is for you and feel how you feel through this album and start something for your future.”

“There’s no particular religious message. In order to explore the dualism of humans, we decided to include angels and demons, which are opposing elements just like fire and water.”

“Angels aren’t necessarily good and demons aren’t necessarily bad. The most important theme is that we should never stop questioning the world around us.”
