Allegaeon

On September 23rd, melodic death metal outfit ALLEGAEON will be releasing their fourth full-length, ‘Proponent for Sentience‘, via Metal Blade Records. Today, the band has launched a mini documentary for ‘Proponent for Sentience‘ online, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album with footage from the studio. To watch the video, please visit: youtube.com | vimeo.com

Make also sure to check out the performance video for the new album track, ‘All Hail Science’, which was shot at Black Sky Brewery in Denver, Colorado during the recording of ‘Proponent for Sentience‘ earlier this year. To watch the video, please visit: youtube.com | vimeo.com

For another preview of ‘Proponent for Sentience‘, ALLEGAEON‘s cover version of the Rush classic “Subdivisions” can be seen here: metalblade.com/allegaeon – where the previously released track “Proponent For Sentience III – The Extermination” [featuring guest appearances by Soilwork‘s Bjorn “Speed” Strid (vocals) and Scar Symmetry/ex-Bloodshot Dawn‘s Benjamin Ellis (guitar)] is also streaming. The first single, “Gray Matter Mechanics – Appassionata Ex Machinea”, and a full band play-through of “Gray Matter Mechanics” can be viewed at: allegaeon.bandcamp.com. Additionally, fans can watch an acoustic performance of “Appassionata Ex Machinea” by Greg Burgess (guitar) on ALLEGAEON‘s YouTube: youtube.com

Proponent for Sentience‘ can be pre-ordered now at: metalblade.com/allegaeon

Produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation), Proponent for Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths. See below for the official track-listing!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
