StereoKiller.com to exclusively premier the title track off Allegaeon's Metal Blade debut, Fragments of Form and Function
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. - May 17, 2010 - Colorado's ALLEGAEON (pronounced: uh-lee-juhn) are giving the metal site StereoKiller.com the exclusive premier of the first single and title track off their upcoming Metal Blade debut, Fragments of Form and Function. The track is currently live and streaming HERE so be sure to check it out and leave a comment for the band. Fragments of Form and Function marks the band's first full length release and was produced by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage) and recorded at Flatline Audio in January 2010.
Vocalist Ezra Haynes comments; "We just recently finished our debut album Fragments of Form and Function. Working with Dave Otero again was a blast. He was definitely able to capture the sound we were going for, since we've worked together in the past it was extremely comfortable and easy for us just to go in there and hammer it out. We're glad he's been a part of our Metal Blade debut and after hearing the end results we couldn't be more pleased with the final product."
ALLEGAEON's Fragments of Form and Function will be available in stores and online on July 20, 2010 (US and Canada).

About the band:
ALLEGAEON is an amalgamation of several incredibly talented individuals. This can be said of many, many metal bands, but not as many have the tangible achievements to stake their claims. Greg Burgess is a classically trained guitarist with a degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, he spent five years as the guitar instructor at the Music Institute of Lexington, and was the first instructor at the Denver branch of Paul Green's School Of Rock. Drummer Jordon Belfast participated in Sick Drummer Magazine's "Blast Off" competition in March of 2008 and was one of the top placed drummers by the competition's end. He's been a featured drummer on the site ever since. The group is rounded out by founding member and killer guitarist in his own right, Ryan Glisan, bassist Corey Archuleta, and vocalist/lyricist, Ezra Haynes.
With a genre stuffed to the brim with countless copy cats and pretenders, ALLEGAEON have come to the table with a dynamic, memorable and focused take on extreme melodic metal. You'll find just as many slow grooves and hook-laden riffs as you will blast beats. This is a band that focuses on song writing and less on making music into an athletic speed competition. Their music is rounded with an intellectual edge that's forged by the band's collective musical prowess and polished by Ezra Haynes' thought provoking lyrics.
