This Friday (April 19th), Allegaeon will release their new album, Apoptosis, via Metal Blade Records. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, Apoptosis is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in the band’s songwriting.

“Meet me in outer spaaaace…”

Death metal prog tech current crop (circle?) leaders with otherworldly talent? Of course we are talking about Allegaeon. They rock, yo! Man, those dudes really in hindsight now completely won that Mish Way argument. Hard to have the moral high ground complaining about some death metal band crowdfunding when you are writing “Dad of The Moment” puff pieces about Jordan friggin’ Peterson and calling Ben Shapiro an intellectual, blughhh. I am not linking to that but it is in Penthouse if you must know. Anyway, tangent…Allegaeon have revealed details for their new album Apoptosis! Via Metal Blade:

I was certain “Stellar Tidal Disruption” is actually a secret rallying cry to Incubus fans who are sadly just not that good at surfing, but I might just be having a flight of fancy. Blame the moon! Seriously though, this song goes hard. That solo section at 3:35, woo boy.

Downfall of Gaia have revealed a deeply evocative cover image and track listing for their new record Aeon Uveils The Thrones Of Decay. There is something so arresting about the image and title. It reminds me of when Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen is deciding the value of each human life versus the beauty of time’s march on the surface of planets.

This image makes me think of the vast cosmic forces and glory of nature, which will outlive our petty schemes (unless the God Particle really ruptures the core of the Universe or whatever, as Hawking said). It joins Allegaeon’s latest masterwork or Cynic’s Kindly Bent To Free Us in striking a deeper thematic chord for more pentive yet restless souls.

The album will be released November 11th in North American, and November 7/10 in Europe/UK. Stop what you’re doing and go stream “Carved Into Shadows”.

From the press release:

“Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay” is a story about indiscriminate relentlessness of time. It’s a journey to the dark sides each individual has to fight on a day to day basis. Time in its majesty is an unbeatable enemy and all of humanity has to deal with loss, unexpected changes and with unwanted circumstances. As a slave to time, mankind is marching to the beat of a perpetually ticking clock. Musically, the album gives the listener less time to breath and features a more aggressive songwriting style than fans have heard on Downfall of Gaia’s their previous releases. It is as aggressive and relentless as time itself!

Downfall of Gaia elaborates: “Each and every song deals with another unavoidable situation that the most of us already got to know. All of us are pretty satisfied with the result of the new record and we are excited to share this new piece of music with the audience! The writing process itself became a bit more complex just because of the fact that our new drummer Michael Kadnar is living in New York and all of us are based in Germany. But in the end we were able to manage all of this in a good way, hit the studio and record our most aggressive sounding record till today. Once again we recorded at the ’79 Sound Studio with Christoph Scheidel and we couldn’t ask for a better guy! Mixing job one more time by Jack Shirley from Atomic Garden and master by Brad Boatright from Audiosiege. Anytime again, guys! We can’t wait to play the new material live!”

“Tyrants Of The Terrestrial Exodus” stemmed from research I did concerning what it would take to relocate the human populace to a new planet. Ezra really came at it from multiple angles, one being that the earths population is so vast, only a select group would be chosen to go. The selection process would be at the hands of the people in power. The rich would corrupt it to an extent based solely upon self preservation. At the end the earth basically says fuck it and kills us all. – Greg Burgess

Elements of the Infinite was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Colorado Feb-April 2014. Otero’s work has been more prominent in the last few years – some fans may have heard his work on the latest Cattle Decapitation album, Cephalic Carnage, and more. The result is a huge victory of technique, aggression and the rich subject matter one would expect from Allegaeon, one of metal’s most exciting acts. We talked to Greg Burgess-/guitar and Ezra Haynes-/vocals to step deep into the worlds of the infinite.

Allegaeon premiere new track “Threshold of Perception”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 6:01 PM (PST)


Colorado death metallers Allegaeon have premiered a new track off of their forthcoming album.

The track, “Threshold of Perception” is off of Elements of the Infinite which due to be released June 24 via Metal Blade Records.

Guitarist Greg Burgess had this to say about the track:

“This song took me literally forever to “get right”. I give Joe Ferris loads of credit for putting up with my nitpicking on the intro. “I want that choir bigger in the D Major section!” We should’ve knocked up T-Shirts for that part. Dude took my crap midi sketch and made it come alive. Other than that this is a pretty straight forward thrash tune, with a few polyrhythms thrown in to drive Mike and Brandon nuts.”

You can stream “Threshold of Perception” here.

Allegaeon are going on tour in August with Chimaira, The Plot in You and Upon This Dawning.

Music Video: Allegaeon – “A Path Disclosed”

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 5:06 PM (PST)

Colorado’s melodic death metal formshifters Allegaeon have just released a music video for the song “A Path Disclosed.”  The song is taken from their most current Metal Blade release Formshifter.

To check out the video click right here.

The footage from this video comes from when Allegaeon recently got to perform at the Bohemian Nights at New West Fest in Fort Collins, CO this past August 11th.  They are also officially the first metal band to ever play the festival, so it’s extra special.  Guitarist Ryan Glisan had this to say:

“We are beyond honored to be the first metal band that has ever been asked to play New West Fest and hope that it opens the doors to have more in the future, the show was a blast and the crowd was amazing, it was a treat. Also, we shot some footage for a live style music video, which is “A Path Disclosed” from “Formshifter”. Enjoy!”
