GOOD METAL ALERT: JAM THIS NEW ALLEGAEON TRACK!
Allegaeon are one of those bands who should really be way more popular than they are. There’s simultaneously everything to like and nothing not to like about their new album Formshifter; Black Dahlia-like death gallops, an Arsis-ian sense of melody and a Soilworkian penchant for songwriting, with a complete absence of brutality for the sack of brutality, dumb breakdowns, over-the-top technicality, auto-Labonte and all the other things that make us seasoned metalheads groan.
Maybe Allegaeon’s greatest crime is NOT offending anyone and therefore not aligning themselves with any one specific scene. Who knows? Meanwhile, Attack Attack! still have a career. Hopefully Formshifter, following up 2010’s Fragments of Form and Function, will get Allegaeon noticed by the masses.
Check out an exclusive stream of the song “Iconic Images” over at Lambgoat for a taste of what Formshifter has in store. The album comes out May 8th and can be pre-ordered here.
