  Xiphoid process - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The xiphoid process is a small cartilaginous extension to the lower part of the sternum which is usually ossified in the adult human.
By age 25 to 29, the xiphoid usually fuses to the body of the sternum with a fibrous joint.
Pressure on the xiphoid process should be avoided when administering chest compressions in CPR, as this can cause the xiphoid process to break off and be driven into the heart lining and muscle, resulting in punctures or lacerations of the heart muscle.

 Reviews for Xiphoid Process - SoundClick Music
However what makes this compilation stand out is the number of new names that I have never heard of, bands like Kubikzahl, ESR and Xiphoid Process who in my mind are revolutionising the Industrial scene and putting it back on the underground map.
Formed in 1994 from the ashes of an experimental/noise duo, Xiphoid Process evolved to create intriguing soundscapes that transcend the borders of gothic, industrial, experimental, and synth music.
After self-releasing a full length demo and two albums, Xiphoid Process has refined and redefined its sound and is slowly moving away from its experimental roots.
