As we start preparing for the new release entitled “Rise of the Phoenix” we are excited to world premier the debut single and lyric video. now for a few words from Chaz Bond lead singer for BioGenesis.

Hello Bio faithful! It has been a crazy year of major changes for us since the release of the Black Widow EP. I am excited to finally unleash the first single from our upcoming album “Rise Of The Phoenix”. This will be a concept album based on the true events surrounding Jim Jones and The Peoples Temple. However it is not simply a saga of thought reform and tragedy but rather, it is an important story about how one character overcomes and ultimately rises above all that he suffered through. With his faith as his rod and staff he was able to not only survive, but to march forward living a great life while warning others of the dangers of Cult leaders like Jones.

The song you will hear today is from the 3rd chapter. It is called ‘Within These Walls’. Please note that the moments when Jones speaks ,these are not his actual quotes but rather my artistic interpretations of his known actions.

BioGenesis – “Black Widow”

Hybrid progressive/thrash/power metal band Biogenesis returns with a Black Widow, a limited release 5 song ep, that should  hold fans until their next full length is released.

For the last 17 years, Biogenesis as a band has come and gone, testing the patience of fans, many of whom were hooked after hearing their debut The Mark Bleed Through oh so many years ago.  While some consider that album a masterpiece, the band did not have that same lineup back together for an album until 2012’s The Rise, The Fall, The Rebirth.  That didn’t last long and the band went on hiatus for while until original guitarist James Riggs cam back and the Nealeigh’s were added on  keyboard, drums and bass to fill out the band lineup for the critically acclaimed  A Decadence Divine.

Bands that incorporate progressive elements into their sound do tend to redefine terms like ep.  Black Widow by Biogenesis is a 5 song ep but clocks in around 33 minutes, which is longer than some band’s full length albums.  There will only be around 200 physical copies of the ep released so those wanting one would be advised to get their preorders in quickly.  From a content standpoint, the band was looking for a way to reach their fans while working on their next full length, a follow up to 2017’s A Decadence Divine.  After a history of adding and losing members, this lineup appears largely unchanged from their last album and from a performance standpoint, that is a good thing as the musicianship is strong with the band.  Production quality is top notch, so the band definitely didn’t rush this out, listening to it one can hear the time spent making it sound perfect.
