Exist has returned with their third studio album Egoiista. The band is streaming the insanely technical new song "Spotlight's Glow" right now, which guitarist and vocalist Max Phelps (ex-Cynic [live], Death DTA [live]) said was the last song written for the new album.
"'Spotlight's Glow' was the very last song written for Egoiista," said Phelps. It seemed to be the missing piece needed to fill out the story, a final 'storm before the calm' techy, bombastic fight prior to the album's more delicate and accepting conclusion. Like everything else on the album it serves a specific purpose in context while also working as its own standalone piece. Lyrically it addresses the ideas that we (as a society) tend to pay more attention to people that are concerned with elevating themselves as opposed to the ones with more noble intentions."
Egoiista is out August 28. Pre-orders are available here.
