Allegaeon is a band that has it all. First of all, their guitarists absolutely shred. With elements of thrash, heavy riffs, melody and crazy solos, these guys are in a league of their own. The vocals are not too deep and not too high. In short, this is the perfect death metal album. I dare say it is the best metal release of 2012 to date. I am surprised that they are not getting the attention that they deserve. These guys just need someone to market their music more aggressively, and they would take off into the metal stratosphere. If I could buy Allegaeon stock, I would. For all of you fans out there who like old In Flames, and other new bands such as Balfor, you should check these incredible musicians out. I play guitar, and I have no idea how they can play so fast, so precise and make technical riffs into melodic beauty. Seriously, these guys are special, check them out!
