The long-awaited debut from Metal Allegiance is now available via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The album hit the Top 10 of the Amazon Metal charts when it was released and shot up to the top of the iTunes charts as well. Metal Allegiance has been receiving rave reviews with Revolver declaring in a 4-star review “…Metal Allegiance towers above other albums of its ilk. Metal Allegiance is equal parts reverence and reference. While the songs are solid with remarkable performances and solos (performed by a host of guests), the real star here is the metal genre itself and the bands that influenced these eclectic tracks.” Wicked Channel recently praised the album in a 10 out of 10 review by stating, “The sales pitch is easy, this is our Bible.” The self-titled album contains appearances by Philip H. Anselmo, Charlie Benante, Chuck Billy, D. Randall Blythe, Rex Brown, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Phil Demmel, David Ellefson, Alissa White-Gluz, Matthew K. Heafy, Gary Holt, Jamey Jasta, Chris Jericho, Andreas Kisser, Misha Mansoor, Mark Osegueda, Tim “Ripper” Owens, dUg Pinnick, Mike Portnoy, Troy Sanders, Cristina Scabbia, Alex Skolnick, Steve “Zetro” Souza and Ben Weinman. The standard edition CD of Metal Allegiance features 9 original songs. A digipak edition is available that features an all-star tribute to Ronnie James Dio with a cover of his classic song “We Rock” as well as a 45 minute behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the album. A double vinyl version is available that features all 10 songs. Physical CD bundles are available via the Nuclear Blast store at http://nblast.de/MetalAllegianceNB.
Stemming from an initial idea in 2011, Metal Allegiance was born as a way to unite a collection of hard rock and heavy metal’s most notable musicians in a setting born under one ideal- a love of music and performing. In 2015, that ideal still holds true and has become the foundation for everything Metal Allegiance; furthered with the release of the upcoming debut album. While the lineup may change, the passion, the energy and the emotion all remain the same. Metal Allegiance is more than just a record or a concert, it’s an experience and a lifestyle.
