Formed in early-summer 2008, with the release of their self-titled EP immediately following, ALLEGAEON (pronounced: uh-lee-juhn) has quickly spread their unique version of extreme metal locally, nationally and internationally, with much acclaim from press and fans alike. 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 Hayne’s thought provoking lyrics.
