Sky Burial EP
RIYL: Crowbar, Everything In Slow Motion, Thick As Blood, Terror & Betrayal
REIGN SUPREME have had an intense fanbase for more than a handful of years now and not without good reason. Their brash mix of crushing metallic hardcore and groove laden metalcore has gone relatively untouched by many of their peers. The release of the Sky Burial EP is a sweet relief for the band and fans alike,as it was originally slated for release in 2011, and it has been worth the wait. Not to disappoint, Sky Burial starts strong and never lets go throughout it’s blisteringly heavy 7 tracks. It’s an incredible mix of early 90′s era metalcore and punishing hardcore vocals that will leave the listener tired and begging for more. What makes REIGN SUPREME stand out though, is this isn’t just random ’tough guy’ hardcore. The little elements mixed in of melody and metal are small enough to not be blatent but add enough ‘meat and weight’ to create a crushing, and at times, devastating wall of sound that one can’t help but to be instantly drawn in. The Sky Burial EP has been a while in the making but it is more than worth the wait. REIGN SUPREME are here to stay, and this should easily prove that as a fact. – by Jon Hole
