Allegaeon launches video for new single, “Extremophiles (B)”

– March 14th, 2019 –

On April 19th, Allegaeon will release their new album, Apoptosis, via Metal Blade Records. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, Apoptosis is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in the band’s songwriting. To watch the video for the new single, “Extremophiles (B)” (directed by Vince Edwards), please visit: youtu.be/Cw7FFhmmrzE

The video for the first single, “Stellar Tidal Disruption” (directed by Robert Graves // ashadowbeyond.com), can be seen at: metalblade.com/allegaeon – where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–jewelcase-CD
–opaque grey vinyl (US retail exclusive – limited to 500 copies)
–black / white A/B side vinyl (US webstore exclusive – limited to 250 copies)
–oxblood / milky clear A/B side vinyl (US webstore exclusive – limited to 250 copies)
–clear w/ black smoke vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–silver w/ oxblood splatter vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–transparent purple w/ white and black splatter vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)

Tracked at Flatline Audio in Denver with long-serving producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage), Apoptosis is Allegaeon‘s fifth full-length, and the first to feature bassist Brandon Michael. “Musically, Brandon brings a huge new dimension,” vocalist Riley McShane enthuses. “He has this wide breadth of music knowledge and stylistic proficiency that he draws from with excellent taste, and this makes a lot of the songs on ‘Apoptosis‘ come to life.” The record also features a guest appearance by classical guitarist Christina Sandsengen, who duets with guitarist Greg Burgess on “Colors of the Currents”. “On this record, I was more open to new ideas that we might not have used in past,” states guitarist Michael Stancel. “Rather than deleting something because ‘it’s not Allegaeon-y enough’, I would take a step back and see if that idea fit the song and decide if it was worth keeping. With that mentality came some of my favorite songs, because I was less worried about if it fit into our old sound.” This statement is borne out across the whole album, which while very much embodying the core Allegaeon sound that has drawn fans in over the course of their impressive career, it pushes into new territory, and does so with unerring confidence. “Thematically, this record is all about contrast, and the music reflects that perfectly,” says McShane. “The vocals are heavier than ever, but there are also more clean sections. The drums are faster than ever but also more dynamic, and the guitar playing is lower and slower than on most previous albums, but also provides long, melodic and beautiful sections throughout.”

Harm’s Way signs worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records

– December 7th, 2016 –

Photo credit: Vince Edwards

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the worldwide signing of Chicagoan metal/hardcore unit Harm’s Way! Currently writing the follow-up to 2015′s acclaimed Rust, Harm’s Way is expected to release their fourth full-length and Metal Blade Records debut in 2017.

Harm’s Way comments: “We are very excited to be working with Metal Blade Records. Their longstanding history in the alternative music community speaks volumes. To join a roster of such highly influential artists is truly an honor. We look forward to the next steps we will be taking as a band on both personal and artistic levels.”

Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel adds, “Super excited to be working with Harm’s Way! We welcome them to the Metal Blade family. I have been a fan since Chris Santos turned me onto them!”

Harm’s Way has emerged from the wreckage of past genres to set a new standard in contemporary heavy music. With their latest offering, Rust, the four-piece brilliantly combines industrial repetition (ala Godflesh) with the aggressive attack of metal/hardcore. Hailed as “pure, molten brutality” (Noisey.Vice.com), Rust continues down the path that Harm’s Way started when they formed in 2006, before releasing 2009′s Reality Approaches, 2011′s Isolation, and several EPs. Fans can expect another seminal album with the group’s upcoming, currently untitled record – which will surely raise the bar for heavy music once again.

Stay tuned for more news about Harm’s Way coming soon! To preview and purchase Rust, please visit: https://harmswayband.bandcamp.com/album/rust
