XENOTYPE 616 is a concept focused on the fall of modern civilisation and human being who give place to the first-born of a new breed: a Xenotype. In medicine a xeno-type consists of a molecular variation based on differences in structure and antigenic specificity. In ancient Greek the word ξένος means something strange, different, almost a foreign body.
The number 616 is recognised by theologians and scholars as the true “number of the beast”. The 666 that we commonly associate to the devil is an error quite common to a lot of transcriptions and translations of the bible as of other religious transcripts. Besides, the number 616 is the 25th number on the Padovan sequence which, like the Fibonacci sequence, includes polygonal numbers quite relevant from an astrological and astronomical point of view. The 25th is also the day of birth of several “pagan” gods (as Astarte, Isis, Ishtar and Mithra to name but a few) who were worshipped for the death and re-birth of the sun and, basically, for the cycle of seasons, years and life. Lately, these myths became the foundations for early christians to put together the pieces of a puzzle known as “the story of baby Jesus and the immaculate conception”. From an astrological perspective, the cycle of death and rebirth of these gods represent the passage from a sign to the next one in the zodiac, whereas in astronomy corresponds to the movement of constellations within galaxies.
The EP contains 4 tracks (one instrumental) that describe the psychological and physical collapse of the last era of mankind going through the occult rituals of its burial and exhumation until a new breed, a new alpha after the omega, appears on planet earth.
