Album Review

Given their previous work, it seemed likely that Colorado-based metal outfit Allegaeon would be typecast as enthusiastic Gothenburg metal re-creationists, always chasing the melodic death metal sound that came out of Sweden in the '90s. Perhaps tired of being pigeonholed, the band stepped out of that period's formidable shadow to forge a path for themselves with their third album, Elements of the Infinite. Shaking up their lineup with a pair of new members, drummer Brandon Park and guitarist Michael Stancel add a newfound sense of vitality to the band's sound. While their songs were always well-written and expertly executed, it still felt as though the band were simply trying to re-create the past, feeling more like melodic death metal reenactors. Though this made them plenty entertaining to listen to, it didn't do much to set them apart from the hordes of other acts mining the same material for inspiration. With Elements of the Infinite, however, Allegaeon have finally made an album that feels like their own. The band has harnessed the mighty sound of the past and put it to work for them as they carve out a space for themselves in the world of melodic death metal. Although their sound hasn't changed drastically, Allegaeon seem hungrier than they've ever been, a feeling that manifests itself in the vigorous performances on the album. Filled with dazzling guitar work, epic orchestral flourishes (by arranger Joe Ferris and others), and Ezra Haynes' furious vocal delivery, Elements of the Infinite is a creative breakthrough from Allegaeon that melodic death metal fans will want to spend a little time with.

Customer Reviews

Has to be

This band is wonderful, both musically and personally. They deserve the best. This will be their best work to date, mark my words.

Meh.

Fantastic talent, but the vocals are abysmal. It’s a shame.

Wow

I never write reviews but Allegaeon has written some of the best metal I have heard, ever. They are a remarkably talented band and based off this single and the first song of this album (up on their FB page, which is hilarious) this album is going to be even more awesome than the last ones. Highly recommend this excellent band and I can't wait to see them live \m/

Biography

Formed: 2008 in Colorado

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from Colorado, Allegaeon fuse punishing death metal riffs with expansive, surprisingly non-death-obsessed lyrics to create their own style of thoughtful and pummeling heavy metal. Formed in 2008 by guitarists Ryan Glisan and Greg Burgess, bassist Corey Archuleta, and vocalist Ezra Haynes, the band got off to a ripping start after their self-titled, four-song EP got them signed to Metal Blade just a year after forming. The band made their full-length debut in 2010 with Fragments of Form and...
