ALLEGAEON released their Proponent For Sentience full-length via Metal Blade in 2016. Produced by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation), the album is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths. Wrote Metal Injection of the release, “Proponent For Sentience effectively primes these tech death machines for an autonomous takeover of the sub-genre. All hail, ALLEGAEON.No Clean Singing lauded, “the sound of a band truly operating at the top of their game,” while Heavy Blog Is Heavy concurred calling the record, “…some of the best, most interesting modern death metal you’re likely to hear…

The band is currently working on album number five, again produced by Otero with details to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Issues ALLEGAEON in a recent Facebook post, “While we are in the studio we are doing daily multiple live streams for our Patreon subscribers.

The second song from Finnish death metaller’s forthcoming album, “Death By Meditation” is now streaming on Metal Injection.

The album is called “Death Velour” and will the trio’s second release. It will be issued by 20 Buck Spin on April 20.

Labels and critics alike seem to have trouble categorizing Ghastly’s sound – terms such as “hallucinogenic”, “nightmarish” and “psych-induced” are being thrown around – but they’re certainly making an impression.

Listen to the first track released, “Velvet Blue”, on Bandcamp. Pre-orders are also available on that site.
