This, my friends, is glorious news. Allegaeon are writing material for a new record, which they will track at Lambesis Studios with producer Daniel Castleman.
The band will be recording their second album for Metal Blade, and I personally am stoked as hell, son.
Allegaeon will record the disc in December at the studio owned by As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis.
Says guitarist Ryan Glisan: “We are excited to see what Daniel can do with our style. All the songs are written and we are finishing up vocals and solos as we speak. What can you expect from our new album? I think we can all say that this album is where we have wanted to be as a band for a long time.”
Glisan says the new songs are “fresh, super heavy, melodic, [with] a ton of groove-oriented old school-style riffing, just as much blasting as down tempo beats.”
He says that “on a whole, the album has a very cohesive and consistent sound that mixes intensity with musicality, and as usual there’s about a thousand solos. I think people will not necessarily hear what they are expecting to hear, but in a good way.”
The band has a new drummer in JP Andrade, and he will be behind the kit for the upcoming sessions.
