"Seriously potent melodic death metal tunes with consistent catchiness and definite headbanagability"
"The perfect microcosm of everything there is to love: expertly crafted arrangements, orchestrations composed by guitarist Greg Burgess and Joe Ferris (among a whole bevy of neo-classical elements), RIFFS, epic guitar solos and hooks."
"The best record of their career so far"
"This is a new, cutting-edge kind of death (metal); aggressive yet accessible, technical yet memorable, menacing yet endearing."

The tour begins August 5th in Joliet, IL and runs through August 30th in Oklahoma City, OK. A complete list of dates can be found below. Tickets for the tour can be purchased HERE.
To give fans more of an insight into the album, Metal Blade created a series of Lyric description/audio teasers for each song from "Elements of the Infinite." Each brief segment features a clip of music from each song on the record, and a description of the track from vocalist Ezra Haynes. All of the segments are available via the band's official facebook page and instagram account: facebook.com/allegaeon | instagram.com/allegaeonofficial
"Elements of the Infinite" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Colorado Feb-April 2014. Otero's work has been more prominent in the last few years - some fans may have heard his work on the latest Cattle Decapitation album, Cephalic Carnage, and more. Otero's efforts here, along with the band's new material, has led to ALLEGAEON's most realized and mature release to date. Musically, fans will be treated to orchestrations that provide significant depth to the sound. The orchestrations were composed by guitarist Greg Burgess along with Joe Ferris (monumentalaudio.net).
