Chapter Thirty-Eight: The Holy Apocalypse

As Arcane Machine has evolved over the years, it’s been fun discovering what kinds of moods and themes emerge based on Justin and Ed’s selections. A very strong one emerged this Chapter, revolving around religion and the end of the world. You’ll explore a “Dead Planet” from Front Line Assembly and wander “Cities in Dust” from Siouxsie and the Banshees. You’ll pray for salvation with E Nomine’s “Vater Unser.” And finally, you’ll be treated to an in-depth examination of both Juno Reactor and Laibach’s interpretations of “God is God.”
