Allegiance - "Desperation" (RVL024)

With their sophomore full length "Desperation", ALLEGIANCE has tossed much of its youthful idealism aside and embraced a stripped down, bare bones, all out attack on the listener instead. The album embodies the weight of frustration that comes from giving everything you've got, only to be left with an unsatisfying vacuous feeling of what to do next. ALLEGIANCE has felt that weight, and after carrying it around for years, has emerged a leaner, meaner beast. Recorded with Roger Tschann at Grizzly Studios (LOOK BACK AND LAUGH, LIGHTS OUT, NEVER HEALED), this album is simply dirtier, grittier, and nastier. On top of speedy distorted guitars and raw aggressive drum tones, the raspy vocals spit with spite at the realization that we're actually never going to find our niche. In a scene where some say "It's just for fun, it's just for today", ALLEGIANCE's "Desperation" has the courage to ask, "If it's just words, then why do I stay?"
