Singled Out: Abiotic

Today Abiotic vocalist Ray Jimenez tells us about the song "To Burgeon and Languish" from their brand new album "Symbiosis," which hits stores today. Here is the story:

This is our debut album with Metal Blade Records, and we are very excited to finally share some of our new material with our fans.

I would say that, musically and lyrically, TBAL is one of our shorter and more straightforward songs. I had a great time in the studio recording vocals for this song because I really got to experiment with my vocal range. This song is a bit different from what we have done in the past. I don't want to speak for the rest of the guys, but I think we are all pleased with how it turned out.

Lyrically, TBAL conveys how change is the only thing that is permanent in life. My dad worked in hospice care for some time, treating terminally ill patients. In many of my dad's sessions with his patients, they would express to him that they had a great fear of dying. These individuals' circumstances pushed me to reflect on our inability to cope with how frail we are, and this gave me most of the inspiration I had to write this song. When human beings face difficulty accepting their mortality, they are sometimes forced to find alternatives to immortalize themselves. Some seek to do so with physical achievements, while others attempt to do it with their thoughts and ideas. Future generations will then be influenced by those before them, and they will continue to build upon the patterns and paradigms of the past.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
