Watch as Mike Portnoy chats about drumming on Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty
METAL ALLEGIANCE began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community’s most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself. Their upcoming sophomore album, Volume II - Power Drunk Majesty, will be released on September 7th, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
