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. Their upcoming, sophomore album, »Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty«, will be released via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on September 7th, 2018.
Today, the band releases its second single, "Voodoo Of The Godsend" featuring Max Cavalera. Watch the music video here:
Mark Menghi comments,
“Voodoo turned out to be a tribal crusher a-la some other influential tribal metal band that we all know and love whom once featured Max. We live in a world of way too much bullshit and hate these days… and as our drummer would say; it's nice to have a step towards World Peace.”
Alex Skolnick comments,
"One of the most distinct tracks on our new album (and indeed, in the entire MA catalogue), 'Voodoo' has a hypnotic feel with indigenous percussion, bringing to mind a ritual in the rainforest. We‘re grateful to have the ultimate voice for this track, with a sound that‘ll ll never be mistaken for anyone else: Max Cavalera."
