METAL ALLEGIANCE – new single ‘Bound By Silence’ (feat. John Bush)
Written by Mike Bertoli on August 31, 2018
release third single “Bound By Silence”
featuring John Bush
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.
With less than 2 weeks until »Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty« is released, METAL ALLEGIANCE is offering a third single. “Bound By Silence” featuring John Bush.
Alex Skolnick comments, “Bringing in John Bush to sing on “Bound By Silence” feels like a real coup. He has the perfect voice for this track musically, as well as the ability capture the intensity of the lyrics in terms of storytelling. A great addition the the MA family.”
Mark Menghi states, “’Bound By Silence’ tells the true tale of an amazing Vietnam War Vet, a brave soul who told me his incredible story with only a few months left to live due to Pancreatic Cancer. It‘s a very personal song to me. I‘ve since come to learn he recently passed on while leaving a great legacy behind. Forever Bound By Silence.”
