Produced by Dave Otero. Album Proponent for Sentience. Proponent for Sentience I - The Conception Lyrics. In a time before words, at the dawn of the earth From the depths of the ocean something emerged The ever-evolving expansion of man Identifies no limits, restrictions be damned. A master machine To aid and release By intelligent design, to help us survive Artificial symbiants that we must devise.

This is the best album ever! It’s perfect! Allegaeon are the future of metal! Please pay attention me! And don’t get me wrong, this is definitely a great album, and I’ve been a big fan of the Colorado quintet myself for quite some time now, it’s just that I fail to see the value in such shameless fawning and bootlicking. Indeed, the hooks on Proponent for Sentience are generally bigger and bolder than on Elements of the Infinite (itself a great album, albeit one which I felt occasionally went a little too proggy/noodly for its own good), which to my mind give it a real edge on its predecessor. It’s no less technical or ed, of course, but the songs overall are just that little bit catchier and that little bit more refined (and less self-indulgent) than those on the previous album.
With Apoptosis, Allegaeon have delivered their defining statement. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, it is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in their songwriting. On this record, I was more open to new ideas that we might not have used in past," states guitarist Michael Stancel.
