Allegaeon’s new album Formshifter will be released tomorrow on Metal Blade. Today, we have a new lyric video for a song called “Behold (God I Am)”.
I have seen this video, but that is all I have been able to do. To be more precise, I have not heard this video. I am in a secret location where I can look at my computer, but I can neither turn up the volume nor employ ear buds or headphones. I could tell you why, but then I would have to kill you.
Having seen the video, which includes lyrics because it is a lyric video, I know what the song is about. It’s about the age-old war among religions, with the lives of innocents caught in the crossfire. Endless sermons . . . endless carnage . . . all in the name of one Creator. Nope, it’s not a happy song.
I also know the song includes a long intro, because much time passes before the words appear. There are also instrumental sections, because the words disappear at times.
I like this band quite a bit, which is why I’m posting about a song I’ve never heard. Please tell me whether that was a mistake, or a boon to your day, won’t you? The vid is after the jump.
Allegaeon are from Colorado and their Facebook page is here.
