This release is Indescribable. HeXeN put out one of the most incredible Thrash Metal albums with this release... The lyrics are deep and introspective and the Musicianship is completely off the charts... This album is a Gleaming diamond in a field of coal. Few live up to it in my opinion
Favorite track: Stream Of Unconsciousness.
Without ever conforming to trends nor compromising on stellar musicianship and aggression, Los Angeles-based Thrashers HeXeN forges ahead with their most diverse and mature album to date with "Being And Nothingness". Sanctioned by a dark cosmic aura surrounding the entire concept of "Being And Nothingness", the album is a brilliant showcase of intellectual, forward-thinking and their trademark guitar-master wizardry fretwork!
With the album recorded, mixed and mastered at Vivid Tone Recording Studio (Lividity, Guthrie Govan, etc) by Rich Bruce and the stunning album artwork by master of cosmic and fantasy artist Kristian Wahlin / Necrolord (King Diamond, Dissection, Emperor, etc), "Being And Nothingness" is a bold yet innovative Prog-Thrash album that most new generation Thrash bands would only dare dream of.

Definitely not an album i thought i'd get into, but holy moly does it have an interesting ambience. Those musical arrangements produce a very intense contrast between voice and instruments, but most importantly, they also bring sensitivity in waves, like a stream of pure feelings washing your face. Beautiful album ! Kyotofu
