The new Dyoxidon album “The Decaying Multiverse” touches upon horror scenarios involving aliens & other hostile entities, as well as spiritual and philosophical commentaries from a science-fiction perspective.
In other words, it uses sci-fi metaphors to criticize our society and how it works.
“Psychosomatic Harvest” deals with aliens’ commandeering avenues of influence amongst humanity, coercing people into self-destruction
via mental manipulation.
“Parasite Communion” is about astral entities
that masquerade as benevolent gods in a worship situation, only to siphon the life out of their followers, much like how a parasite and it’s host would relate to each other (that one is based on an experience the mastermind Host Revenant had with a friend, who was giving all his spiritual devotion to an entity he claimed he was serving, while his real life on the physical realm was crumbling before him).
“Light of a Cybernetic Sun” is about a man waking up to the fact that he lives in an artificial world, surrounded by artificial people who don’t understand they’re in a simulation.
Maybe cliche, but it’s still applicable to aspects of the modern world.
Such concepts are both mixed with industrial music and extreme metal, combining the two genres along with those lyrical themes.
Host Revenant tries to pull from different subgenres of electronic and industrial music, in order to hopefully keep the music interesting.
The sound combines elements of brutal death metal and atmospheric black metal mixed with harsh industrial and IDM.
Dyoxidon’s origins can be traced back to 2009,
when sole band member Host Revenant began listening to artists in the industrial black metal subjenre.
Wanting to pursue a unique musical path, without copying directly from such influences, the project was taken into a more death metal direction, with hints of black metal merely accenting the mechanized soundscapes.
Demo songs were recorded in a very primitive fashion, and only saw the light of day on places such as Soundcloud.com.
It wasn’t until 2017 that an attempted full-length album was recorded, entitled “Mechanobiotic Theosophy”.
Upon relocating from Wisconsin to Colorado in 2019, the project released an EP entitled “Outmoded”, which was originally meant to be half of a split with another artist, which never came to fruition.
Being dissatisfied with the final sound of ‘Mechanobiotic Theosophy’, the album was re-recorded and remixed in 2021 to become “Exo-Spectrum”, the first official Dyoxidon full-length,
with ‘Mechanobiotic Theosophy’ being downgraded to merely a shadowy demo.
The project released it’s newest offering, “The Decaying Multiverse”, in 2023, setting it’s sights on greater levels of worldly exposure.
