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 their sophomore album Volume II Power Drunk Majesty via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on September 7th, 2018. The thrash worshiping album merges oldschool legends with the modern metallers 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). 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 here: https://youtu.be/sxDy11uRxNc.
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.
