Allegaeon To Release New Album “Damnum” In February, Premiere “Into Embers” Video


Allegaeon‘s sixth studio album has been titled “Damnum” and will meet a February 25th release on Metal Blade Records. Recording sessions for the opus took place at Flatline Audio in Westminster, CO with producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Khemmis). For a first taste from it, the group have just launched the below music video for their new single “Into Embers“.

Vocalist Riley McShane commented:

“As an introduction to our new album, ‘Damnum‘, we are thrilled to present ‘Into Embers‘. This song embodies the dark and fitful nature of this album by bringing to the table elements of ourselves as a band and as individual musicians that we have been waiting to share with you all for a long, long time. As always, we are excited for our listeners to join us as we step forward into new landscapes – continuing to push the boundaries of our music further and further – and we are eager to experience the unveiling of ‘Damnum‘ together over these next few months.”

McShane also spoke of his lyrical content on the album itself, offering, “My hope with these lyrics is to have them be relatable to listeners and show them that they’re not alone when they’re experiencing the gamut of negative emotions – someone else is out there feeling the same way.”

Meanwhile, the band’s guitarist Greg Burgess credits the 2020 addition of drummer Jeff Saltzman as being an asset to this new record. Speaking of his input in the creative process, Burgess stated:

“This is really the first record where the drummer has written all their parts, instead of us guitar players programming a beat and having our drummer just write the fills. Pairing him with our bass player Brandon Michael, we have a rhythm section that can keep up with the level of musicality and proficiency the guitars have always brought to the table.”

Pre-orders for the album are available now at this location.
