Metal Allegiance Supergroup (Megadeth, Testament, Dream Theater, Etc.) To Release Album

Metal Allegiance is a supergroup with a large amount of guest musicians similar to the likes of punk rock/hardcore project Teenage Time Killers. With core members including Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, The Winery Dogs/ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, and Mark Menghi, the band is already potentially badass.
