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 on September 7th, 2018, via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

With less than 2 weeks until the new album is released, Metal Allegiance has revealed their third single. Watch the music video for “Bound by Silence” featuring John Bush below.

Alex Skolnick comments: "Bringing in John Bush to sing on "Bound by Silence" feels like a real coup. He has the perfect voice for this track musically, as well as the ability capture the intensity of the lyrics in terms of storytelling. A great addition the the MA family”.

Mark Menghi states: “"Bound by Silence" tells the true tale of an amazing Vietnam War Vet, a brave soul who told me his incredible story with only a few months left to live due to Pancreatic Cancer. It’s a very personal song to me. I’ve since come to learn he recently passed on while leaving a great legacy behind. Forever "Bound by Silence"”.

The thrash worshiping new album merges old-school legends with the modern metallers of the scene to produce groove driven, adrenaline soaked anthems while tackling the frustrating state of the world. The list of musicians for “Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty” include Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), John Bush (Armored Saint), Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth (Overkill), Mark Tornillo (Accept), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Floor Jansen (Nightwish) and Johan Hegg (Amon). It also marks the return of Mark Oseguesda (Death Angel) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon).

“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.
