Metal Allegiance began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community’s most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself. The band is proud to announce the release of the sophomore album "Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty" via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on September 7th. Pre-order the album now at this location.
The thrash worshiping album merges old-school legends with the modern metal acts of the scene to produce groove driven, adrenaline soaked anthems while tackling the frustrating state of the world. The list of musicians for Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty include Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), John Bush (Armored Saint), Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (Overkill), Mark Tornillo (Accept), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth). It also marks the return of Mark Oseguesda (Death Angel) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon). Today, the band releases the first single "Mother of Sin" featuring Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (Overkill). Watch the video in the player above. "Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty" was produced by Mark Menghi and Alex Skolnick while Mark Lewis of MRL Studios handled the mixing and mastering. The cover artwork was created by renowned artist Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Machine Head, Soulfly, Hatebreed) and Rafael Tavares. "Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty" will be available in the following formats:
