METAL ALLEGIANCE - Discuss The Recording & Mixing!

METAL ALLEGIANCE -  Discuss The Recording! - 2018-09-04

2018-09-04 - 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. Their upcoming sophomore album, »Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty«, will be released on September 7th, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Only 3 days until the release of »Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty«. Today, the band discusses the recording and mixing. The album was.produced by Mark Menghi and Alex Skolnick while Mark Lewis of MRL Studios handled the mixing and mastering.

Mark Menghi states, "The tracking was different this time around. We were all busy this past year tracking - Mike at his home studio and Dave in Arizona while Alex and I tracked in New York where we did the bulk of the recording."

Mike Portnoy comments, "Working at my home studio and having the guys at my place was such a great environment."

"It is easy to forget when you hear the finished product that it's really a lot of work from start to finish - all the writing, the lyrics, the vocals, the back-up vocals, guitars, harmony guitars and guest guitars," states Alex Skolnick. "The mixing was a really fun part of the process because musically everything had been done and we got to hear it back, it all sounded good. There were very few musical changes and edits that Mark Lewis wanted; you can probably count them on one hand. But the music just felt so solid."

This Thursday, METAL ALLEGIANCE will celebrate the upcoming album with a special release show presented by Revolver at The Gramercy Theater in New York! In true METAL ALLEGIANCE fashion, the night will include an all-star line-up that will not disappoint!

The night will feature the core four - David Ellefson, Alex Skolnick, Mark Menghi, and Mike Portnoy - as well as Mark Osegueda, Andreas Kisser, John Bush and Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth. The night will also include Trevor Strnad and Mark Tornillo who are making their METAL ALLEGIANCE debut on »Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty«.

Direct support for the show is VENOM INC, WEAPONS OF ANEW, FOLLOW THE AWAKENED and TERRORBYTE.
