ALLERJEN – IRREPRESSIBLE MANCHESTER METAL MERCHANTS RELEASE POWERHOUSE NEW ALBUM!
November 18, 2011 by writer
Northern bruisers spit out their blissfully brutal and brand new full length album ‘Equilibrium’, on Monday 20th February 2012 through Brutal Elite Records/PHD and available through all major digital stores.
Underground UK Metal crew ‘Allerjen’ return to the fold this February with their explosive new record ‘Equilibrium’ and it’s undoubtedly worth the wait. ‘Equilibrium’ is a hearty crossover-mix of Prog, Metal, and Deathcore. The cuts on the record are hard edged, gut-busting and superb on all fronts. Tracks such as the mighty ‘Destroyer Of Worlds’, ‘Treachery By Thy Name’, and the vicious ‘Hunter’ meld together stout beats with ear shattering riffs, capped with a vocal delivery that will refine your senses.
Originally formed late 1999 under the moniker ‘Sphere’, the early incarnation of the band faced many challenges, including a series of line-up changes, before they finally became Allerjen during the summer of 2002. The band suffered another set back in 2003 when they replaced drummers, however Paul Tarbuck stepped up and more than effectively filled the void, galvanising the crew by adding depth and a new-found momentum to the band. Ever since 2005, Allerjen have progressed and amassed a sturdy fanbase through regular UK touring and the output of considered, but quality releases. Through appearances at the Damnation Festival, consecutive slots at the Godless Festival and sharing stages with everyone from Sepultura, Amen, Man Must Die, Biomechanical, Skindred, Khanate, through to the The Inbreds and Forever Never (where the band secured all seven dates on their headline UK tour), the band have managed to cement a place for themselves as a prominent UK underground metal band.
In 2006 & 2007 the band continued to tour the UK to build up steam for the release of their debut full length album “No Guts, No Glory” which hit stores through Psychophonic Records in 2008. The record sparked wide critical acclaim and racked up nationwide coverage, including numerous covermount CD slots with the likes of Metal Hammer, Powerplay, Terrorizer and Zero Tolerance. Throughout 2010 Allerjen took time out and regrouped. During this period the band became a four-piece and drafted long time friend and guitarist Audie Harrison into the mix. Now with a new lease on life and armed with a killer new album, Allerjen are back, bolder and more robust than ever.
