Deus Ex: The Storyteller

Deus Ex Machina: The Storyteller is a disc full of emotional tension and, according to Axel, this disc is without a doubt his best creation up to now. The Storyteller is the opposite of a silent movie. It has a story line with music and narration; pictures are left to be developed by the listener. This album is an EPIC MUSICAL NOVEL. Each track tells part of a story and the whole album tells the full story—it’s like reading a book. Each song is a chapter.

This album tells the story of a transgender man who decides to commit suicide and face God to ask for answers about his destiny, since in the world of the dead things happen where religion, science, quantum physics, spirituality and Greek mythology are fused to give life to this musical novel full of tension and emotion. 
The transgender person commits suicide and faces God, who gives him the knowledge to understand time and space better, but at the same time condemns him to live in Limbo for an indefinite period of time. Disagreeing with his God’s decision, the transgender man escapes from Limbo and returns to face his God, but this time with the silly idea of winning the battle against the Almighty.

“Inter Duos Mundos” then describes the battle between God and the Mortal. As it is to be expected, God wins the battle and sends the mortal to live eternally in hell, guarded by Hades. Once in hell, Hades is lovingly seduced by the Mortal, who succeeds in convincing Hades to let him escape to release his vengeance on the three dimensional world. When he is ready to double time and space and open the portal that divides the earthy world from the spiritual world, God appears before him and it is here where the last song of the album tells the end of the story in an epic and unexpected manner. 

The music was written entirely by Axel Samano and it took him three years to learn on his own the musical theory behind the orchestra. This is an original disc and in complete accord with its author, because Axel ‘s soul was involved in the majority of the songs—his own history.

Intensely enigmatic and mysterious subject matter. The viewer encounters a vision of Axel Samano that is at once sympathetic, humorous, and sometimes apocalyptic.
