Sonic Reign are a band from Germany that plays a very modern day of black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Monument In Black" which will be released by Apostasy Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast modern day black metal riffs that are very heavy while also retaining some raw and primitive elements as well as some melody in the riffing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized have a black'n'roll feeling to them.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams with some spoken word elements being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound to it with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In y opinion Sonic Reign are a very great sounding modern day black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Clouds Over The Desert" "Monument In Black" and "Dali Nightmare Injected". RECOMMENDED BUY.
