As stated on their Facebook profile, Denver/Fort Collins, Colorado-based quintet Allegaeon are a “Modern Melodic Death Metal… NOT METALCORE, DEATHCORE or any other CORE.” That said, it’s exactly true and nothing less or more than what you’ll encounter on the band’s soon-to-be-released Metal Blade Records effort, Elements Of The Infinite. Due out on June 23rd, Allegaeon are in top form with this new release, as easily evidenced by their new single, “1.618.” Recently we got the opportunity to exchange emails with guitarist Mike Stancel who was kind enough to tell us about his Maxon OD808 overdrive pedal and some of the recording behind Elements Of The Infinite.
