Colorado-based modern melodic death metallers ALLEGAEON will enter Lambesis Studios in San Diego, California in December with producer Daniel Castleman (AS I LAY DYING, CARNIFEX, MOLOTOV SOLUTION) to begin recording their second album for an early 2012 release via Metal Blade Records.
Commented guitarist Ryan Glisan: “All the songs are written and we are finishing up vocals and solos as we speak.
“What can you expect from our new album? I think we can all say that this album is where we have wanted to be as a band for a long time; it’s fresh, super-heavy, melodic, [with] a ton of groove-oriented, old-school-style riffing [and] just as much blasting as down tempo beats. On the whole, the album has very cohesive and consistent sound that mixes intensity with musicality, and as usual there’s about a thousand solos, haha. I think people will not necessarily hear what they are expecting to hear, but in a good way.”
In other news, ALLEGAEON has announced the addition of drummer JP Andrade to the group’s ranks. According to Glisan, “JP is as well-versed in extreme death metal styles as he is with other styles such as rock and jazz, etc.”
