Simply put: Allegaeon manifested 10 dizzying tracks of utter brilliance; gave (further) proof the band is profusely proficient as a whole and individually; and created a Technical Melodic Death Metal album packed with so much aggression and speed, it sounds like Monster fornicated with Red Bull.
Ghost Cult caught up with Riley McShane to discuss Allegaeon’s new album “Damnum” – due out on February 25th via Metal Blade Records. Riley discussed the deeper meaning of the album, lyrical themes, the bands’ conscious decision to create music in a new way after 15 years as a band, goals for the album, his evolving vocal crayon box, Riley’s favorite peers among Death Metal Vocalists such as Travis of Cattle Decapitation, touring hijinx, and much more!
