Allegaeon release video "Called Home"
In February of this year, Allegaeon released their latest album, DAMNUM. The title means “loss” in Latin and consequently, the lyrical themes mark a deviation from the band’s previous sci-fi/science-based output. Track number six from the album, “Called Home,” may be the most emotional and powerful example of that theme on the album. That song is now accompanied by a new video.

Guitarist Greg Burgess comments on the concept of the song and video: “Over the last few years people around the world have experienced immeasurable loss and grief. This song and this video is a representation of a personal experience. By sharing this story we hope that it brings some sense of peace to anyone who has shared in a similar experience, and to possibly throw a lifeline to someone out there who may be suffering. You are not alone.“

Album and merch orders are available now at: metalblade.com/allegaeon“This is the place where I rest my bones and the river that cleanses me runs alone!” cries frontman Riley McShane on the track. “This song is about finding a place of inner quiet, a safe haven to explore your thoughts and escape from the anxieties of your life,” the vocalist explains. “This lyrical intention is paired with a depiction of disparity and tiredness with the world around you and the stressors that contribute to the deafening silence of the mundane. In the music video, we showcase a more physical – and graphic – display of this thought process where the escape from the daily grind is manifested into a willing self-sacrifice. Though a dramatization, this concept of sacrifice to find your own personal peace can be applied to something less tangible and played an important role in my own process while writing the lyrics for DAMNUM. Thank you for watching and listening, we hope you enjoy it.“ALLEGAEON recently released the first video behind the album, “Into Embers,” and have built themselves a unique place in the musical landscape, forcing both technicality and melody to the forefront as they create tumultuous and riveting death metal. With DAMNUM, their sixth full-length, they push everything further into the extreme, and in the process deliver the definitive ALLEGAEON record.DAMNUM Track Listing:01. Bastards of the Earth02.
