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 here:
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 to 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.”
