Mike Portnoy Says New Metal Allegiance Song Is 'Slayer Meets Sabbath'

(Classic Rock) Metal Allegiance drummer Mike Portnoy has recalled how he picked Mastodon's Troy Sanders as the perfect vocal fit as soon as the supergroup had written their track Let Darkness Fall.

The band - led by Portnoy, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick - have issued their second studio video, which focuses on the song. It also features Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe and ex Pantera bassist Rex Brown.

Portnoy describes it as "Slayer meets Sabbath - Slabbath!" and adds: "As soon as we wrote this song, I remember hearing his voice. I totally pictured Troy on this." Read more and check out the video here.
