Metal Allegiance Metal Allegiance

‘We Rock’, the new video from METAL ALLEGIANCE – the all-star metal band consisting of a rotating cast of musicians, including members of MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, LAMB OF GOD, PANTERA, MACHINE HEAD and more – is now streaming over on YouTube. The song is taken from METAL ALLEGIANCE’s self-titled debut album, which was released last week via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The video for the band’s Dio cover features all of the musicians who performed on the track including Alex Skolnick, David Ellefson, Mike Portnoy, Mark Menghi, Mark Osegueda, Chris Jericho, Alyssa White-Gluz, Andreas Kisser, Phil Demmel, Gary Holt, Chuck Billy, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza and a few sneaky appearances by some of the other artists involved in the project! Watch ‘We Rock’ here:

Brought together by METAL ALLEGIANCE principal partner Mark Menghi, the project’s original material came together from the creative minds of David Ellefson of MEGADETH, Mike Portnoy of THE WINERY DOGS, and Alex Skolnick from TESTAMENT, alongside Menghi. The four writers then reached out through their metal phone books to a diverse lineup of performers, each adding their own personal musical stamp to the collection of nine original songs.

Stemming from an initial idea in 2011, Metal Allegiance was born as a way to unite a collection of hard rock and heavy metal’s most notable musicians in a setting born under one ideal – a love of music and performing. In 2015, that ideal still holds true and has become the foundation for everything Metal Allegiance; furthered with the release of the forthcoming debut album. While the lineup may change, the passion, the energy and the emotion all remain the same. Metal Allegiance is more than just a record or a concert, it’s an experience and a lifestyle.

The standard edition CD of Metal Allegiance will feature the 9 original songs. A digipack edition will be available that features an all-star tribute to Ronnie James Dio with a cover of his classic song ‘We Rock’ as well as a 45 minute behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the album. A double vinyl version is also be available that will feature all 10 songs as well.
