After successful appearances at sea on MOTÖRHEAD’s Motörboat and Shiprocked as well as an unforgettable show before NAMM in Anaheim this past January, METAL ALLEGIANCE has signed their first-ever record deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The world-wide deal stems from the popular musical collective uniting to write and record original material this past winter. Brought together by METAL ALLEGIANCE principal partner Mark Menghi, the original material came together from the creative minds of David Ellefson of MEGADETH, Mike Portnoy of THE WINERY DOGS and Alex Skolnick from TESTAMENT alongside Menghi. The four writers then reached out through their metal rolodexes to a diverse lineup of performers, each adding their own personal musical stamp to the collection of nine original songs. More information on the performers and individual track lineups will be released in the near future. The debut album from METAL ALLEGIANCE is slated for release this fall.
