We’ve got a double header for you to soften the blow of it being a Monday. Bloody-Disgusting has scored the exclusive premiere for the new Allegaeon video ‘Biomech‘ AND we’re giving away a full prize back which includes a t-shirt, signed poster and more! The song ‘Biomech‘ comes from their latest release, ‘Fragments of Form And Function’ (review here), which you can get from iTunes. All details are after the jump.
From singer Ezra Haynes: “The song Biomech was influenced by a Coloradoan girl who at a young age was diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, or ONH, a condition where optic nerves don’t develop properly in the womb. As a result of that and facing total blindness, she needed to find treatment and that’s where stem cell research comes in. Stem cell research being the highly controversial subject that it is in United States led her to seek treatment in China funded by fundraisers held in Colorado. By using stem cell research Chinese scientists were able to grow the optic nerve needed for her vision.
The approach taken in writing the lyrics to Biomech is putting yourself in the shoes of the struggle, not being able to find treatment for your illness due to someone else’s beliefs. Ultimately the naysayer ends up with an illness in which a stem cell procedure is their only hope.”
