In celebration of The End of the World Tour, ALLEGAEON has partnered with Jackson® Guitars and Guitar World to giveaway a brand new 7-string Jackson Soloist SLATXMGQ3-7! Several runners-up will receive copies of Allegaeon’s new album, Formshifter. Enter to win on GuitarWorld.com –http://www.guitarworld.com – and check out the demo video for the Soloist model at jacksonguitars.com.
Earlier this year, ALLEGAEON released a DIY video for their song A Path Disclosed, which can be seen on youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKqUOiYoEAE. Additionally, guitarists Greg Burgess and Ryan Glisan can be seen in a guitar demonstration video for Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUdEpaILWOg.
You can hear the Formshifter tracks, Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst and Twelve on The Welding Room.
“Now this is metal worth getting excited about. Formshifter has thrown down a gauntlet to metal bands everywhere and dared them to do better” – Kerrang Magazine
“But the members of Allegaeon are so monstrously talented—see the entwined guitar harmonics, machine-gun drumming, and even the occasional, not insufferably acoustic interlude on the group’s heavily NWOBHM-shaded second LP, Formshifter—that they dig their way out of the doldrums of mere proficiency.” – AVClub.com
“The huge walls of crushing low tuned chugging and burning shred passages are awesome, but ultimately it’s the band’s ability of being able to really put together catchy heavy tracks that sets them above the rest of the pack.” – About.com
