METAL ALLEGIANCE | 'Can't Kill The Devil' studio trailer posted online


Stemming from an initial idea in 2011, Metal Allegiance was born as a way to unite a collection of hard rock and heavy metal’s most notable musicians in a setting born under one ideal - a love of music and performing. In 2015, that ideal still holds true and has become the foundation for everything Metal Allegiance; furthered with the release of the forthcoming debut album. While the lineup may change, the passion, the energy and the emotion all remain the same. Metal Allegiance is more than just a record or a concert, it’s an experience and a lifestyle.

Metal Allegiance are set to release their debut self-titled album on September 18th but until then, the collective are teasing fans with videos from their sessions in the studio. 
The fourth trailer is now online and covers the recording of the track, 'Can't Kill The Devil': https://youtu.be/CzxH1WTBXNw 

The standard edition CD of Metal Allegiance will feature the 9 original songs.
