Mike Portnoy Discusses Drumming On Metal Allegiance 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. Today, the bands releases the next album trailer. Watch as Mike Portnoy chats about drumming onVolume II - Power Drunk Majesty, here: Mike Portnoy comments, "METAL ALLEGIANCE is the ultimate metal outlet for me as far as metal drumming. That style of drumming is huge for me as I grew up with the thrash scene. That was a big part of my background but I never had an outlet for it."
