Abiotic guitarist John Matos commented:

“Our intention behind ‘Ikigai‘ was to come back with a vengeance. As it has been over 5 years since our last release, we wanted to put together the most cohesive, diverse, deep, and brain shattering record we possibly could and I feel like we’ve achieved that and more with this album.

Having written this over the course of the last couple of years and finishing this record during a pandemic, the feelings we sought to bring out with this record; pain, grief, desperation, and perseverance are palpable in every note, every chord, and every word, with lyrics touching on topics of suicide, depression, addiction, climate change and the struggle of finding our reason for being.

We wanted to make this record real and relatable in every sense. This album is without a doubt the best material we’ve ever put together, with brand new elements, and a production/mix that has taken our sound to new heights.

The addition of Tony Simone and Kilian Duarte solidified this. We decided to include a variety of guests that we’ve always wanted to collaborate with, like Trevor Strnad, Chaney Crabb, Brandon Ellis, Scott Carstairs, Jared Smith, and Jonathan Carpenter, and are beyond excited for everyone to hear them.

We really wanted to push the boundaries of what fans expect from us while giving them the signature sound we’ve honed in that they’ve come to love. Personally, ‘Ikigai‘ is one of the greatest accomplishments of my life, especially after not knowing if the band was ever going to come back. But we’re back. And we’re here to stay.”

Abiotic Sign With The Artisan Era

Abiotic have signed a new deal with The Artisan Era and are planning to release a new album through the label this year. The band commented:

“We could not be more excited to join the ranks of the incredible roster on The Artisan Era to release our third album. We have worked hard over the last few years to put together an album that takes our sound to the next level and that also encompasses everything that got us to where we are. We believe TAE is the perfect label to showcase our vision for the next Abiotic record. Prepare yourselves, the wait will soon be over!”

Recently re-emerged technical death metal outfit Abiotic is proud to announce their signing to the ever-expanding extreme metal label, @theartisanera . Active since 2010, Abiotic sprang to life with an urgent sense of immediacy both live and studio recording-wise that soon saw them signed to Metal Blade Records after their 2011 independent EP, A Universal Plague, was released. The band toured relentlessly every year from then on while also dropping their 2012 debut album, Symbiosis, and their sophomore album, Casuistry, in 2015. After a few years of time spent regenerating Abiotic back to life into what has become their strongest line-up yet, the group powerfully returned with their February 2019 live tour alongside Cognitive, God Of Nothing, and Greylotus. This was quickly followed by the unleashing of a lethal new single entitled "Emerald" in March of 2019. Stay tuned for further news and updates regarding Abiotic's third full-length tentatively set for release via The Artisan Era in the summer of 2020. Abiotic comment on their signing with The Artisan Era "We could not be more excited to join the ranks of the incredible roster on The Artisan Era to release our third album. We have worked hard over the last few years to put together an album that takes our sound to the next level and that also encompasses everything that got us to where we are.

Abiotic Premiere New Song “Emerald”

Abiotic have premiered a new song titled “Emerald.” The band said the following about the track:

“‘Emerald‘ is the culmination of nearly three years of thinking Abiotic would never be again. The song is based on the tragic event of one of the band’s closest friends losing his wife, her final day, and what it meant to the ones that loved her most. She is survived by their 10 year old son and 25% of the proceeds will be going to his education, the James Pennington Education Fund. A huge thank you goes out to everyone supporting us and in turn, helping someone a part of the Abiotic family to heal from a tragedy. Experience the pain of loss with us.”
