Allegaeon Announce New Album, Stream First Single



Allegaeon — about as exciting a progressive melo-death band as there is right now — have announced that they’ll release a new album, Damnum, on February 25 via Metal Blade. The group’s sixth full-length reunites them with longtime producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Khemmis, etc.).

This already-tremendous news is made all the more so by the release of “Into Embers,” the first single from Damnum. Not only does it demonstrate that the Colorado quintet haven’t lost their touch for ripping the listener a new one, but it also demonstrates the band’s continued growth as songwriters — “Into Embers” may be their catchiest, most epically epic song to date.

Says Allegaeon vocalist Riley McShane of the track:

“As an introduction to our new album, Damnum, we are thrilled to present ‘Into Embers.’ This song embodies the dark and fitful nature of this album by bringing to the table elements of ourselves as a band and as individual musicians that we have been waiting to share with you all for a long, long time. As always, we are excited for our listeners to join us as we step forward into new landscapes – continuing to push the boundaries of our music further and further – and we are eager to experience the unveiling of Damnum together over these next few months.”

You can watch the “Into Embers” video below, but only if you promise to turn your speakers or headphones way, way up. Pre-order Damnum here.
