Staff review by
How can you restrain yourself and write distinctive, enjoyable songs when you wield the unfathomable instrumental prowess of a technical death metal band? Many artists struggle to escape the technical rut, and we wind up with a lot more Malmsteens than Morellos in the process. For Allegaeon, it's not such a chore.

Stellar Tidal Disruption was pretty good. Hopefully this one is edited down a little.

After seeing freshly posted video from their upcoming album, I was amazed that I haven't heard of these guys before. I've obliterated all their albums since then and consider myself an instant fan. Woah, these dude are good and that debut's excellent.

Really looking forward to Apoptosis

Also, current vocalist Riley McShane would have been the absolute perfect frontman for Fallujah. I know, he's been with this band for several years now. Just stating the point that Fallujah should have done...something

Both Fallujah and Allegaeon toured with Obscura recently. Allegaeon smashed them out of the park, they were terrific.

Some thought it was over long but I thought Proponent for Sentience was an incredible album. The two new tracks sound great to me too.

Excellent album. This band has been so consistent ever since their debut back in 2010. Riley does an excellent job with the vocals, building on what he did on the last album, and the riffs just keep getting better and better. This will definitely be on my end of year list, I'm sure of it.

Whatever it is, these guys have truckloads of the stuff. I've been following them since The God Particle and they never disappoint.

Saw them live when they toured a few years back with Ne Obliviscaris, I remember them standing out and absolutely killing it on stage; been following them since and this new album does not disappoint, great stuff from those guys! Very consistent band.
Keep it up

I found some of their earlier stuff to be a bit messy and at times one dimensional (perhaps I was listening to the wrong songs from the earlier albums), but this to me is a significant step up...I still find a couple of the shorter songs a little boring but overall I have to commend this album. I wonder if they picked up a few influences from Ne Obliviscaris after all that touring together

Either way, add in a *little* more variance to the vocals i.e. a little more clean here and there, expanding on the harsh style a little and this band could really grow into something brilliant.
