Metal Allegiance The Dying Song Video Released

Metal Allegiance have released a video for the The Dying Song, a track from the eagerly awaited self-titled first studio album by the project.  The record is due for release on September 18th 2015 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Featured on The Dying Song are Philip H. Anselmo on vocals, Alex Skolnick on lead & rhythm guitar duties, Mark Menghi hitting the bass, and legendary Winery Dogs band member Mike Portnoy on drums.

Randy Blythe had this to say on his invitation and involvement with the project – “When Lamb of God asked Alex Skolnick to rip a guest solo on Ashes Of The Wake, it was a big deal to us to have one of the legends of our scene play on our record. Much to my amazement, years later he returned the request, and it’s an even bigger deal to me to be asked on a peer level to contribute to a project with so many stellar players. I was honored to be chosen. Gift Of Pain rips! Play it LOUD!”

The album was originally announced by Nuclear Blast on 16 June 2015 along with a full track listing.
