Hailing from various parts of the Salt Lake Valley, Alumni forges an aggressive path towards the depths of metal. Combining sounds and influences from every era of brutality and creating a form all its own, this six member effort puts forth nothing but the most maddening, fetid, unearthing expressions that merge fists with faces. Coming together as a group of close friends with shared interests and varying histories in the Salt Lake music scene, Ben Winder, Ron Garcia, Justin Harris, Nic Mortensen, Evan Pilgrim, and Tom Morse formed from the remnants of their previous projects and melded together to bring what they thought was missing from this world of false realities and disillusioned perceptions.

With many bands flourishing and building a solid group of devoted fans willing to give anything to be at every show, and to swing and shove their way to the center of the floor and show their love. Alumni is counting on giving everything for the ones who see what it's all about, working hard, being heard, and knowing you have the power to impact this world however you wish.

Track Name: Decohesion I
Infinite growth paradigm
Failure is human kind if we
Don't open up our eyes

The minds of men are only limitless and still it seams
We've lost the thought of our affects within reality
Only growing further into
Our own insanity
The power of allusion only
Grows if you believe
In fear they wait for the
Populous to over see
And over turn their allusion
Into clarity
Only moving forward
To forever succeed and achieve
On their way to monopolize everything living

We live empty only growing in the deficit
Binding to our fears turning our heads to the reality
Human kind will fail if we choose to never change our ways
We will continue to suffer
Dying by the hand that feeds

Those who choose to seek wealth and power in
their way of life
Only wish to fool us all
Into their paradigm
The fool is you
The fool is I
We are all fucked if we don't realize
Exponential growth
Infinite paradigm

We live in an infinite growth paradigm
We have the choice to leave and still we choose to live these lives

Track Name: Decohesion II

We wonder why
Nothing changes
We are always dreaming

We must stand against ourselves to save humanity

We stand in empty bodies
Waiting to exceed this life
Blindly chasing in circles that
Right before your eyes
We must lead ourselves to step out of our ways
We must stand against ourselves
To save humanity

We stand in empty bodies
Waiting to exceed this life
We live empty
Unchained we must lead ourselves to step out of our ways

We must stand against ourselves
To save humanity
Track Name: Greed
Erase our ways ascend from
Our mortality
As one we Rot alone we find

Open your eyes to the criminals
Leaching on your mind

Who live only in your mind
Through epidemics
Of intellect and rationality
Whose mind was set long
Before you began
Whose case is closed

Since the day your mind was programmed to believe
Do as your told
But do not stand do not object
Find only faith in belief
But than command a life of hell
Inside eternity

Your beliefs are becoming a joke to me disgusted by the means
That wreck our life's
And suspend any possibility
For there are consequences you and I will face

Onward we walk our
Eyes fixed upon our feet
As one we Rot alone we find
Our clearity

The possibilities exceed the certainty in mind
Now only time prevents our rise

Only now have we even begun
To see
And realize the possibilities
Exceed the certainty in mind
Only time prevents our rise

Your beliefs are becoming a joke
To me
Your becoming a joke to me
Track Name: Means To An End
Means to an end

Stand in empty footsteps
To identity
Afraid to realize
We orchestrate our living misery
These are our means to an end

I see through you
And it burdens me
The price of understanding
Is the image of the self
Sought truthfully

The truth can only
Its self in time
And I'm afraid
I've seen yours
And through it I have chosen

I have seen your truth

For I live in the constant mystery
No strings attached to my beliefs
For anything is possible
And though you chose not to see
Your attachment is your means to an end
Lost in our means to an end
