Deus = noun, God


.exe = abbreviation, An executable binary file.


The band name Deus.exe is derived from a combination of the Latin phrase “deus ex machina” meaning “God from the machine” and the computer filename extension suffix .exe. This leaves the name open to many interpretations. One example is that God is the machine – a digital savior, salvation of the human species through technology. Another could mean that if god is a program that he must have been created by the hand of man and is therefore not real – To quote Voltaire “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him”.

Whatever one concludes from the name, Deus.exe’s mixture of Death, Industrial, Prog and Modern metal is not for the faint of heart. If you’re easily disturbed, or prone to paranoia, better leave now. What you are about to hear may change the way you see things — forever.
