On September 23rd, melodic death metal outfit ALLEGAEON will be releasing their fourth full-length, ‘Proponent for Sentience‘, via Metal Blade Records. Today, the band has launched a mini documentary for ‘Proponent for Sentience‘ online, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album with footage from the studio. Watch the video below
Make also sure to check out the performance video for the new album track, ‘All Hail Science’, which was shot at Black Sky Brewery in Denver, Colorado during the recording of ‘Proponent for Sentience‘ earlier this year. That video can also be seen below.
For another preview of ‘Proponent for Sentience‘, ALLEGAEON‘s cover version of the Rushclassic “Subdivisions” can be seen here: metalblade.com/allegaeon – where the previously released track “Proponent For Sentience III – The Extermination” [featuring guest appearances bySoilwork‘s Bjorn “Speed” Strid (vocals) and Scar Symmetry/ex-Bloodshot Dawn‘s Benjamin Ellis (guitar)] is also streaming. The first single, “Gray Matter Mechanics – Appassionata Ex Machinea”, and a full band play-through of “Gray Matter Mechanics” can be viewed at:allegaeon.bandcamp.com. Additionally, fans can watch an acoustic performance of “Appassionata Ex Machinea” by Greg Burgess (guitar) below.
‘Proponent for Sentience‘ can be pre-ordered now at this location.
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. See below for the official track-listing!
