Mark Menghi comments, "We got pissed. We got upset. We got angry. Just because our heroes were leaving us. The people that inspired us to pick up instruments, to write music are no longer with us... that is where this came from."

ABOUT METAL ALLEGIANCE
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.
