"The Elements is a song by musical humorist and lecturer Tom Lehrer, which recites the names of all the chemical elements known at the time of writing, up to number 102, nobelium. It was written in 1959 and can be found on his albums Tom Lehrer in Concert, More of Tom Lehrer and An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer. The song is sung to the tune of the "Major-General's Song" from The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. The song is also included in the musical revue Tom Foolery, along with many of Lehrer's other songs.
Elements refer to fundamental substances, components, or pieces that form a larger system, structure or compound. This term holds different specific meanings in various fields such as chemistry, mathematics, design and so on. For instance, in chemistry, an element refers to a pure substance composed of atoms with the same number of protons. In mathematics or in a set, an element is an individual item within a set.
Elements is the third album released by the progressive / technical death metal band Atheist. It was released on August 30, 1993 by Music for Nations in Europe and by Metal Blade Records in the US. Elements was reissued by Relapse Records in 2005 and was digitally remastered with the addition of six bonus tracks. The album has more of a jazz influenced style than their two previous albums, but it remains highly technically complex. Elements was written, recorded and mixed in forty days in Pro Media Studios. The band wanted to dissolve but they were required to finish their third album in order to fulfill a contract to their record label. Elements features the addition of a third guitarist, Frank Emmi. Initially, Rand Burkey was not going to appear on the album, and as Kelly Shaefer had developed carpal tunnel syndrome, a new lead guitar player was needed. Before recording, Burkey rejoined the band, and thus the band ended up with three guitarists. Shaefer plays rhythm guitar, while Emmi and Burkey share responsibilities for leads and solos. Elements was Atheist's last studio album for 17 years, until the 2010 release of Jupiter.
