Posted by on November 8, 2016

Last week, every news outlet was talking about Colorado tech death band Allegaeon, after they decided to launch a Patreon campaign to stay together as a band and, as you can expect, everyone had an opinion on it (including us).

Headbangers Brawl: How much support does a band deserve from fans?

Posted by on November 4, 2016

  It’s an undeniable fact that the music industry will never be the same as it was fifteen years ago, and five years from now, it could be in a totally different place.

Allegaeon might break up if you don’t support them

Posted by on November 2, 2016

  Just a little over a month ago, Denver prog/death metal band Allegaeon released Proponent for Sentience, their fourth album.

That’s a […]

Metal By Numbers 10/13: What new sorcery is this?

Posted by on October 13, 2016

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. If you thought that Opeth’s continued avoidance of their death metal roots would hurt album sales, you’d be wrong. While Sorceress didn’t sell as much as Heritage did in its first week, it did sell more than […]

Allegaeon hail science with new video

Posted by on August 30, 2016

  The dramatic principle of Chekhov’s gun says that if there’s a gun in the first act, you know it’s going to be fired in the third act. To that front, when the second shot of Allegaeon’s video for “All Hail Science is some kid with an animal hat/scarf dejectedly walking towards a brewery, you […]

Cover coverage: Allegaeon does Rush, Affiance goes to “Africa”

Posted by on August 23, 2016
