In January 2010, Allegaeon entered the studio to record their debut album Fragments of Form and Function. The album was released on July 20, 2010 through Metal Blade. In January 2012, Allegaeon went to Lambesis Studios in December 2011, in San Diego, California to record their second full-length album Formshifter. Formshifter was released May 8, 2012 through Metal Blade.
All in all, "Fragments of Form and Function" is an absolutely phenomenal debut album that has everything from ferocious head splitting brutality to incredibly mind bending melody and technicality that are all wrapped up in one perfect package. Trust me, this album here is truly a must have for any true fan of technical/melodic death metal.

Despite its flaws, here’s your entrance to nostalgia, my friend: Allegaeon’s Fragments of Form and Function. The melodies of the album sound recycled from the bands that first did the melodic tech-death metal thing, and the lyrics are often too laughable to take seriously.
Before me I have the debut album Fragments of Form and Function by Colorado’s own Allegaeon. It’s very good and I like it plenty. Firstly, Allegaeon play an extremely Gothenburg influenced version of melodic death metal whilst bringing an assload of technical and songwriting ability to the table.
Album (Studio full-length). I found this album out a while ago, when I was just starting to get into Metal. I was reading a bunch of Melodeath recommendation lists, and decided to pick this one up. I was surprised of how bland it sounded while being so good at the same time. Kinda weird how that happens, isn't it? 멜레릭 (70/100).
