Metal Allegiance discusses the difference between first and second album

METAL ALLEGIANCE began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community‘s most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself.

Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty was produced by Mark Menghi and Alex Skolnick while Mark Lewis of MRL Studios handled the mixing and mastering. The cover artwork was created by renowned artist Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY, HATEBREED) and Rafael Tavares.

In the bands first official trailer, the group discuss the difference between the bands first and second album.

Alex Skolnick comments “The first time around we were kids in a candy store. We could do whatever we wanted – all different eras, all different types of influences. We did go in a few different directions on this album, but not quite as many. This time, I think we have a much better sense of what type of songs really fit the project.”
