about

One of Denver's most successful metal bands, Arcanium, is back with their highly anticipated sophomore release, Ontogenesis. Unrelenting, this barrage of metal cuts like a chainsaw with surprising surgical precision. In perpetual forward motion since its 2007 conception, Arcanium has toured with such notable groups as Megadeth, Machine Head, Bullet for My Valentine, Suicide Silence, Otep, and Ill Niño, capturing the attention of an extensive and loyal fan base. Ontogenesis is a testament to the band's skill, hard work, and dedication: an intensity that permeates the album from beginning to end.

Track Name: Blindsided
All I ever think about is who did what and who’s to blame If you didn’t like our approach you should have drowned yourself in your own shame We won’t stop now but that’s not the point I’m gonna give it to you It’s all I’ve got to give I hope you’re learning from it You will never be what we are gonna be We needed your support when we supported you It will hit you In your blind side I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it You are jaded I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity All we ever wanted is what you want but we took control I can’t believe that you’re so caught up you have dug this deep of a fucking hole It won’t help you You’ll be on the ground Not what you’re looking for So redefine your sound but you’re not gonna make it Tired of hearing it It’s all the same to me Why even have a fit We are all sick of it It will hit you In your blind side I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it You are jaded I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity In your blind side I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it You are jaded I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity We never spent the days running our mouths saying you don’t deserve this We’ve worked our skin to the bone on these tremendous accomplishments It will hit you In your blind side I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it You are jaded I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity In your blind side I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it You are jaded I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity I’ll say it to the mother-fucking world I’m sick of all you pricks so here’s another piece of it I said it and I’ll say it again We’ve had enough of the hate that created animosity
Track Name: Bury the Hatchet
How many days will it take for me to be ready for tomorrow? I shouldn't have to start over again just to indulge in all your sorrows I spent my life I tried I'll finally unbind Another reason I don't want to find you I'll bring myself into anything just to have that chance to rebind you No it’s not my funeral but I need to dig my way out So I can bury the hatchet I'm drowning Surviving But I need another way out So I can bury the hatchet An exit for you A lesson for me A crash course in whatever you just wanted to be I don't care for your sympathy the monogamy or the apathy I said I tried to find I’ll finally unbind I'd give anything just to gut you Your whole existence is a waste of life I'll push the blade all the way through you No it’s not my funeral but I need to dig my way out So I can bury the hatchet I'm drowning Surviving But I need another way out So I can bury the hatchet This inverted chaos created in my time No need for your shrine Reservation is mine No it’s not my funeral but I need to dig my way out So I can bury the hatchet I'm drowning Surviving But I need another way out So I can bury the hatchet
Track Name: Shattered
Just like a revolution tearing itself apart They will not follow your path of illusions We will not let you destroy us all NO What’s happening to our nation? What happened to deliverance? What’s wrong with a proclamation? What’s wrong with this government? Hold strong to your preservation See all through the looking glass Watch them take away from your only salvation Watch your rights shatter and slip through your hands It’s all been shattered and taken away There’s no room to breathe locked inside this cage NO What’s happening to our nation? What happened to deliverance? What’s wrong with a proclamation? What’s wrong with this government? What’s happening to our nation? What happened to deliverance? What’s wrong with a proclamation? What’s wrong with this government? It’s all been shattered and taken away There’s no room to breathe locked inside this cage
Track Name: Evil Arise
Another world will crumble to the ground when the darkness surrounds takes over your town The only feeling that aspires within is the one your gods will crumble in There is no way to stop the wrath because the skies will fall and you’ll endure a bloodbath And when your body decays in full a sacrifice to the blood gods takes its toll. Not my god It’s your god he’s worthless The only way to survive this is pledge yourself to the darkness You will be overcome so let the devil fulfill you and you will succumb Don’t let yourself get trumped HEY It will never be enough NO I’ve seen much darker times HEY This is evil’s time to rise Another way to coincide is the need for your friction as you let them inside You’ll feel the burn Your stomach turns The evil’s inside you with your lesson learned Don’t let yourself get trumped HEY It will never be enough NO I’ve seen much darker times HEY This is evil’s time to rise Evil’s time to rise Another world will crumble to the ground When the darkness surrounds takes over your town The only feeling that aspires within is the one your gods will crumble in There is no way to stop the wrath because the skies will fall and you’ll endure a bloodbath And when your body decays in full a sacrifice to the blood gods takes its toll Not my god It’s your god he’s worthless It’s your god he’s worthless Don’t let yourself get trumped HEY It will never be enough NO I’ve seen much darker times HEY This is evil’s time to rise Evil’s time to rise EVIL’S TIME TO RISE!
Track Name: Severed Moment
I severed all the ties again I made it my own way for me You tricked the brain from your lies I said I won’t go without reason I can’t handle your lies and I won’t play your games This is the end of us A cure for all your fucking shame This is a severed moment With all your broken cries You know you’ll always own it And I’ll say goodbye I look into your eyes again You saw the emptiness within I tricked the brain from your lies I said I won’t go without reason Abandoning this void is what I need to live I severed all the ties There is nothing left that I can give This is a severed moment With all your broken cries You know you’ll always own it And I’ll say goodbye You always say it and I can’t remember anything Another fate Another shot A fuckin’ broken dream You were the one and you would never explain anything My body’s numb and it’s still feeling everything I tried it once and even twice So what’s to say to me It’s like I said a hundred times A fuckin’ broken dream I’ll need a reason big enough that you can give to me There is nothing you can say that will stop me This is a severed moment With all your broken cries You know you’ll always own it And I’ll say goodbye This is a severed moment With all your broken cries You know you’ll always own it And I’ll say goodbye
Track Name: Down
I’ve had to start too many days looking for a way to drown the pain I’ll never try to be the one that hits the dirt before I’m done I can’t take it My body’s numb My mind is shaken I’m not faking Leave me behind Don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down It’s standing in front of you You won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through You’ll never see it Standing in front of you And won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through Now I’ll get around through half the day Hope that the itch just goes away I know I want another hit It can’t be undone and makes me sick I hope I make it I feel the burn It drives me crazy I’ve been mistaken Leave me behind Don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down It’s standing in front of you You won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through You’ll never see it Standing in front of you And won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through Go! Go away I just want you to go away Now here we are until the end No tragedy but a day well spent I feel insane to fill the void It wasn’t hard to just avoid I know I’ll beat it I’ve overcome and stopped the cravings I won’t get heated Leave me behind don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down I can’t I won’t Leave me here Don’t take me down Don’t take me down It’s standing in front of you You won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through You’ll never see it Standing in front of you And won’t conceive it Knowing the truth slipped through
Track Name: Inducing Dementia
Oh! I wanna bleed it all out into the ocean again So you can see it Where it all became so dark and cold And it will never be bolded Oh! Just like a knife in precision Cutting all the lies that you have told This is the end of the road It doesn't matter where you will go Just disengage all the words that make sense to the masses Now feel the wrath of everything you've created and passed through Oh! Another look inside the master-mind of destruction The only place that might be safe from your desecration Oh! I feel I've been here before It's time to settle it It's not the first although it may be the last My blood will spill for this Had you ever called my name I'd be behind you This was your loss without a gain Now who betrayed who I will escape out from this place and never see you I'll find a way to make you pay You won't know what hit you YOU FUCK Oh! I'll let the demons take over inside me again So you believe it And seize the control that powers my anger from within Oh! Now can you feel the deception Let it rip through your every emotion How can your cries that I despise still darken the skies? You won't be needed in this life any longer I've been needing to find a new cure for my hunger Had you ever called my name I'd be behind you This was your loss without a gain Now who betrayed who I will escape out from this place and never see you I'll find a way to make you pay You won't know what hit you YOU FUCK
Track Name: Mortar Massacre
Why is the evil inside you? Who had the chance to invite you again? What’s the difference? Even though we were lied to Just like they always will Another day another formal mistake as it sneaks right up and hides in your face And now how will it feel? What will we do to bring them down? The time has come Create the edge of the world We will rise against Stand with me and raise your fist Another mortar massacre Shrapnel fills their face Leaving remembrance of your name So now what’s in it for you? It will be nothing Sad but true But it’s all the difference in the world to you You should be punished for the things that you do wrong Look to the sky so you can see that you’ll die as I hit the deck and shield my own eyes And now you only wished that you could say goodbye The time has come Create the edge of the world We will rise against Stand with me and raise your fist Another mortar massacre Shrapnel fills their face Leaving remembrance of your name All the bodies are everywhere and they deserved their own despair But now everybody better just beware Prepare yourself for another mortar massacre Now that it’s done and we can say that we’ve won and there’s no one left to rot in the sun But now we have to live in a world that’s been undone The time has come Create the edge of the world We will rise against Stand with me and raise your fist Another mortar massacre Shrapnel fills their face Leaving remembrance of your name OH Look to the sky OH Now we will rise OH You won’t go far
Track Name: Who Am I?
Rise from the ashes and equip the mental state You were the one that confessed to us that you killed 28 The sparks will fly when you bludgeon her sweetly The weapon placed so undemanding and neatly We are your sons We are your husbands We’re also born with the malignant emotions Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Hiding in the open but just far enough for fun Killing these ten people ’74 to ’91 You wrote your letters to state your obsession To establish a label Regardless of your condition At only nine You watched him die You want them all to serve you in the afterlife Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees As I walk through this world See the people die Your rotting souls drift into exile The behaviors of the human mind sicken me You sicken me But who am I? Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees Who am I? We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees
Track Name: Fall Behind
This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be This is the end of hypocrisy I wanna burn it down and stop the fate The flame is our visual concentrate It’s not over until it’s over Here comes your 15 minutes of SHAME No matter where you go No matter what you do I will find you No matter what you say or what happens today I’ll despise you All our visions lost for examples Everything we set out for has failed Was it just a fuckin’ free sample? All I want is the truth revealed It’s not over until it’s over Here comes your 15 minutes of SHAME No matter where you go No matter what you do I will find you No matter what you say or what happens today I’ll despise you There is only one way to end this fear of failure It’s the satisfaction of being near the pasture You can’t describe this sense Searching in the back of my mind for pestilence One last devotion will seize to commence I don’t understand your curiosity This is only building animosity We know what to do and how to do it How can it be this hard to achieve it? It’s not over until it’s over Here comes your 15 minutes of SHAME No matter where you go No matter what you do I will find you No matter what you say Or what happens today I’ll despise you We have always controlled our own This is our statement our will We won’t fall behind
Track Name: Wicked
Let’s go! This is the edge of all inception Taking measures and drawing the line Why can’t we stop all this infraction The value to me is blowing my mind I know what holds the key to your life It’s only found within On the wicked side of emotion These are not my sins There’s no control of how we feel here All accusations bring forth all the sins Just tell me what makes you What it is that you’ve been through I wanna hear everything I can’t stand alone suffering I know what holds the key to your life It’s only found within On the wicked side of emotion These are not my sins Go! Won’t let you go It’s not that easy you make the rest something I could forget Just tell me what makes you What it is that you’ve been through I wanna hear everything I can’t stand alone suffering I know what holds the key to your life It’s only found within On the wicked side of emotion These are not my sins I know what holds the key to your life It’s only found within On the wicked side of emotion These are not my sins Just tell me what makes you What it is that you’ve been through I wanna hear everything I can’t stand alone suffering
