Allegaeon "Extremophiles (b)" from the "Apoptosis" album.
Directed and edit by Vince Edwards with Ryan Williams and Allegaeon.

With Apoptosis, Allegaeon have delivered their defining statement. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, it is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in their songwriting. "On this record, I was more open to new ideas that we might not have used in past," states guitarist Michael Stancel. "Rather than deleting something because 'it's not Allegaeon-y enough', I would take a step back and see if that idea fit the song and decide if it was worth keeping. With that mentality came some of my favorite songs, because I was less worried about if it fit into our old sound." This statement is borne out across the whole album, which while very much embodying the core Allegaeon sound that has drawn fans in over the course of their impressive career, it pushes into new territory, and does so with unerring confidence. "Thematically, this record is all about contrast, and the music reflects that perfectly," says vocalist Riley McShane. "The vocals are heavier than ever, but there are also more clean sections. The drums are faster than ever but also more dynamic, and the guitar playing is lower and slower than on most previous albums, but also provides long, melodic and beautiful sections throughout."

Extremophiles (b)
I am exposed to elements known
to, in excess, destroy and dethrone
Total envelopment of
the system, resistant suspended as stone

From mountain heights to oceans of ice
searing heat to arctic freeze, replacement of hydration is
essential to life and so I thrive
disordered proteins crystallize, converted cells now vitrified

Superimposed on top of my own
regenesis, a genetic restructuring not ever seen
before. I stand alone;
a monument to obstruent adaptation,
cryptobiotic response

From mountain heights to oceans of ice
searing heat to arctic freeze, replacement of hydration is
essential to life and so I thrive
disordered proteins crystallize, converted cells now vitrified

I survive
Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the key to eternal life

Dueling shadows of mystery gone
congruent solutions, set the stage
a glimpse of what's to come

Will we decide, be rid of this blight
fear of death, sorrow, disease... escape or face the weakening
our fading timeline to face genocide
A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi
repair our structure or die

I survive
Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the keys to eternal life

Encroaching our own hopelessness
We drift away toward...

I stare and burn my eyes out
fate calls do we answer or not
chance to learn from life smaller yet
more resilient than ours

I stare and burn my eyes out
fate calls do we answer or not
chance to learn from life smaller yet
more resilient than ours

Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the key to eternal life.
I survive
Immortality realized
I survive
Metamorphosis impedes on new horizons
Holding the key to eternal life.
