Metal Supergroup Metal Allegiance To Release Debut Album

With many rock bands touring with each other throughout the years, one can only expect that some of these guys will in fact become friends with each other from their common bond of music, among other things.

Something that could arise from these situations, and seems to happen more than ever these days, is that “supergroups” form through these friendships.

So, what do you get when you mix members of Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera and Lamb of God? The answer is, you get the supergroup Metal Allegiance.

Allegiance was formed in 2011 by Mark Menghi, who is a creative marketing director in New York. The band started with Alex Skolnick and Mike Portnoy from Testament and Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson as the core members. Since then, some of metal’s biggest names are throwing their hat in the ring for the self-titled debut studio album with all original material on Sept. 18.
