Allegaeon - Apoptosis

When something stops evolving, it will eventually cease to exist. That’s the pattern Allegaeon chose to follow on their new album and although it was a daring decision it turned out better than their fans would have thought it’d be.


I absolutely adore the new album. It’s dream mix between death metal and melodic, fantasy style of music. So, it would be great to kick off with some questions about the new album. I love the mix of death metal and lighter fantasy style parts. Is there particular reason you chose to include the lighter melodic verses, rather than just full on death metal all the way?

Allegaeon launches music video for new single “Extremophiles (B)”

On April 19th, 2019, Allegaeon will release their new album, “Apoptosis”, via Metal Blade Records.

A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, “Apoptosis” is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in the band’s songwriting.

Watch the video for the new single, “Extremophiles (B)” (directed by Vince Edwards), below.
