07. Circle Of Life

Bandleader and guitar-wizard Gus G. advances some own words about the new material:

"Although the CD starts out with a pretty intense song ("Into The Fire") which is like a six and half minute riffing, shredding and double bass madness, the next few songs are what I'd call modern hard rock - if I have to put a tag on it!

I think there's a lot of cool guitar stuff all over the album and generally this is a more guitar-oriented effort. Our influences draw from Thin Lizzy to Black Sabbath and Megadeth and you can clearly hear that on the riffs and guitar melodies.

Songwriting-wise I think all songs are special and once again everyone was involved in the writing - we basically kept the Allegiance "winning team" together.

Thus, we once again recorded and mixed @ Studio Fredman in Sweden. Fredrik really knows the sounds we're after and delivers it in no time! We tried a few different things in the engineering this time - mainly with the drums and guitars and I feel we have a pretty tight, bone crushing Metal sound.

As for surprises we decided to cover the 80s pop smash hit, "Maniac", not because we're such lovers of the film "Flashdance", but because it's a kick ass song, period. Who knows, maybe we'll get to do a remake of that famous video one day!"
