As previously announced, melodic death metal outfit ALLEGAEON will be releasing their fourth full-length this fall; today, the band has revealed details for this album, entitled Proponent For Sentience. Produced by Dave Otero (CATTLE DECAPITATION), Proponent For Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths.
Due out September 23rd via Metal Blade Records, Proponent For Sentience can be pre-ordered now at: http://metalblade.com/allegaeon - where the band play-through for the new track, "Proponent For Sentience III - The Extermination", can also be viewed with guest appearances by SOILWORK's Bjorn "Speed" Strid (vocals) and SCAR SYMMETRY/ex-BLOODSHOT DAWN's Benjamin Ellis (guitar). See below for format details:
180g Black 2LP
Marbled Violet 2LP (limited)
*Exclusive t-shirts, plus a special collector's bundle (8-string Legator guitar + CD + 2LP + t-shirt + t-shirt) are also available now!
