Singled Out: Abriosis

Today Abriosis vocalist Alxs Ness tells us about "Crypsis " from their brand new EP "Vessel," which is being released today (Feb 1st). Here is the story:

"Crypsis" was the first song that I contributed lyrics and vocals for in Abriosis. When I joined the band last year, the guys already had the music composed and it was up to me to finalize the vocals. At first I wasn't sure where to take it lyrically, so I started off by mapping out vocal rhythms. After locking down the rhythms and listening to the song countless times, the lyrical content started to materialize; the lyrics are inspired by the way the music makes me feel.

The word crypsis refers to the ability of certain organisms to blend in with their surroundings through methods such as camouflage, transparency and mimicry. In the song I took that idea and created a lyrical world where creatures use the transparency of consciousness to coexist with humans on a certain level. We can minutely sense them but they're always just outside of our perceptions. The overall feel of the song is ominous: the creatures' purpose isn't quite clear but it's definite that we are at their mercy.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself with a free stream or download here and learn more about the band and the EP right here!
