Allegaeon are Proponents for Sentience
Having already unveiled a song from the album (“Gray Matter Mechanics – Appassionata Ex Machinea” — listen here), Allegaeon have now announced official details for their new album, Proponent for Sentience… and released another song from that album, “Proponent For Sentience III – The Extermination”… which also happens to feature guest appearances by Soilwork vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid and Scar Symmetry guitarist Benjamin Ellis. Phew!
So, first thing’s first: check out the song via the below playthrough video. Unsurprisingly, it’s a really cool song; if you’re the least bit familiar with Allegaeon, Soilwork, and/or Scar Symmetry, you know what sort of sweet melodeath to expect.
The clip is also worth watching even if you don’t particularly give a hoot about the musicianship of the track, ’cause “Speed” Strid’s role in the video is… well… I won’t spoil it for you.
Killer, right? Right!
So, now, second thing is second: Allegaeon’s new album, Proponent for Sentience, will be out September 23 on Metal Blade. You can pre-order it here. The band will also be part of Max and Igor Cavalera’s Roots tour starting next month; get dates here.
