Metal Blade Records signs Colorado’s Allegaeon
Colorado’s ALLEGAEON (pronounced: uh-lee-juhn) has joined forces with Metal Blade Records. Formed in early-summer 2008, with the release of their self-titled EP immediately following, ALLEGAEON has quickly spread their brand extreme metal locally, nationally and internationally, with many accolades from fans. Their 2008 EP was produced by local studio magic man Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Martriden, Cobalt). With only 4 songs, ALLEGAEON managed to captivate an entire new legion of dedicated supporters worldwide and with a live show that is as engaging as any, are sure to win over many more fans to come.
The band comments: “We all are super stoked to be a part of this legendary label. Metal Blade to us is the past, present and future of metal. With new tunes that will be equally crushing and catchy, we look forward to producing an album that will most definitely turn heads.”
With a genre stuffed to the brim with countless copy cats and pretenders, ALLEGAEON have come to the table with a dynamic, memorable and focused take on extreme melodic metal. You’ll find just as many slow grooves and hook-laden riffs as you will blast beats. This is a band that focuses on song writing and less on making music into an athletic speed competition. Their music is rounded with an intellectual edge that’s forged by the band’s collective musical prowess and polished by Ezra Hayne’s thought provoking lyrics. Once again, Denver’s own Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Martriden, Cobalt) will be at the production helm for their Metal Blade debut, which is slated for sometime in the second quarter of 2010.
The band has recently released their video for Nex Of Terra from their 4 song EP:
