ALLEGAEON Release Play-Through Video For “Dyson Sphere”Wednesday, 25th June 2014
Colorado-based technical metal masters ALLEGAEON have released the play-through video for “Dyson Sphere,” which can be viewed below. Elements Of The Infinite was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Colorado Feb-April 2014. Otero’s work has been more prominent in the last few years – some fans may have heard his work on the latest Cattle Decapitation album, Cephalic Carnage, and more. Otero’s efforts here, along with the band’s new material, has led to ALLEGAEON ‘s most realized and mature release to date. Musically, fans will be treated to orchestrations that provide significant depth to the sound. The orchestrations were composed by guitarist Greg Burgess along with Joe Ferris.
Lyrically, the band has gone full-tilt with their space and science themes. Vocalist Ezra Haynes has penned songs that discuss both theoretical and practical science topics. Anyone who may be watching Cosmos with Neil de Grasse Tyson will surely catch references to Dyson Spheres, the high probability of alien life in the universe, humanity’s eventual exodus from earth, the golden ratio, and much more. It’s as fun dissecting the lyrics as it is the complex and challenging music.
