After the hilarious video for Allegaeon's new song "1.618", the tech death metallers now release a new one. The group recently completed work on a video for their song "Our Cosmic Casket" and today you can watch the video right here. Check out the video and their new song below. "Our Cosmic Casket" has been described as the most aggressive tune on their new record.
Also, you can grab their new album Elements Of The Infinite when it drops via Metal Blade Records on June 24th, 2014 in North America, June 23rd in the UK/Europe and June 20th in Germany/Austria/Switzerland.
Guitarist Greg Burgess says: "When we set out to film two music videos to help promote the new record, we decided to choose polar opposites in terms of musical feeling. One being '1.618' in the more melodic sense, and 'Our Cosmic Casket' in the more straight-up death metal sense. Our thought process was to try to encompass every facet of our audience, and which style they were more drawn to.
"Each of these videos makes up a part of an overall story arc we plan to film. Part one being '1.618,' and now part two, 'Our Cosmic Casket.' This video story line basically is we needed to get rid of our merch guy Myles, so we can pretend to be all brutal and film a serious video. Of course, in classic Allegaeon fashion, it gets screwed up. Myles returns early and blows the whole vibe of what we were going for.
"This is probably the weakest of the videos as far as story arc goes, but it sets up three and four perfectly. Basically, this is Allegaeon's Star Wars Episode I, without Jar Jar, of course.
"Lyrically this song is about nearing the event horizon of a black hole and what it would be like as we approached one. More specifically, as if a black hole were nearing earth and sucking our oxygen from our atmosphere. The effects it would have on our senses and so forth. Musically it's probably the most aggressive tune on the record. It takes influences from a variety of classic death metal, and even has a touch of djent in one section. They really complimented each other when played in sequence."
