Colorado death metal act Allegaeon will be releasing their new album Formshifter this May via Metal Blade Records.

Guitarist Greg Burgess commented on the new album:

“With “Formshifter”, I think we kept the sound a lot of our fans love about us, but achieved them through certain compositional challenges. Be it style, or genre mixing, I believe that we seamlessly applied certain elements we didn’t have on Fragments, and it added a color and dimension we didn’t have before”. Guitarist Ryan Glisan adds, “This album to me indicates the future of the band but nods to our past as well. It, to me, is more of where I have envisioned our band being since I started the band a couple years back, it relies on similar songwriting structures and musicality but adds more groove and memorable riffing than our previous efforts.”

Vocalist Ezra Haynes commented on the band’s first single from the album titled “Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst”:

“‘Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst’ is definitely one that sticks out to me. I was raised on Edgar Cayce readings and tales of Atlantis. When Greg [Burgess] and I knew we wanted to touch base on an ancient civilization, Atlantis was the logical choice.”
