Metal Allegiance Supergroup Announce Debut Album

(Classic Rock) Metal Allegiance, the project featuring members of Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Pantera, Lamb Of God men and others, will issue their self-titled debut on September 18.

The band is the brainchild of Mark Menghi who brought together Megadeth's David Ellefson, Testament's Alex Skolnick and drummer Mike Portnoy in 2011.

Since then, big-name artists including Phil Anselmo, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo and Steve Vai have joined the core group to participate in live events - but only now is their first album of original material set to be released.

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe says: "When Lamb Of God asked Alex Skolnick to rip a guest solo on Ashes Of The Wake it was a big deal to us to have one of the legends of our scene play on our records.

"Much to my amazement, years later, he returned the request and it's an even bigger deal to me to be asked on a peer level to contribute to a project with so many stellar players." Read more including the track and performer list here.
