Artificial Light

  • Lyrics
  • The structure of this song is a bit more complex that most of the others on Extremist. Vocalist Ryan Clark explained to Decibel magazine: "There are a couple points in the song that stray from what's most typical for us. The verse segment plays with an interesting time signature, which is a little different for us. And the title of the song is actually heard in the pre-chorus, as opposed to the chorus, which is the only example of this on the record."
  • The song's vibrant melodic death metal sound highlights the influences of Swedish bands like At The Gates, In Flames and Soilwork. Clark told Decibel: "There's a delicate balance of ferocity and melody in these bands, whether it's in the music or the vocal — or both — that to me, is unrivaled in most other sub-genres."
