METAL ALLEGIANCE released their newest EP, entitled Fallen Heroes, which pays homage to the 3 legends – Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie, and Glenn Frey – who impacted not just their lives but the world as well.
Recorded at Conclave Studios in New York City, Fallen Heroes was produced by Mark Menghi, Mike Portnoy, and Alex Skolnick. The album was mixed by Jay Ruston in Los Angeles, CA and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York City by Ted Jensen. The initial sketch of the artwork was created by Mark Menghi and Stephen Thompson (Anthrax) and was later finalised by Marcelo Vasco (Slayer).
Overdrive caught up with Mark Menghi during last year’s Bloodstock Festival where he spoke of the Fallen Heroes EP. Get the full interview here.
