‘Reign Of The Architect’ Announce Release Date For Debut Album, Trailer Available


ROTA_logoIsrael/Greece-based progressive metal act Reign Of The Architect recently signed a deal with Pitch Black Records, who will be releasing the band’s debut album, Rise, on April 16th [May 14th in the US].

The album features guest appearances from Jeff Scott Soto [Yngwie Malmsteen, Yourney], Mike LePond [Symphony X] and Joost Van Den Broek [Ayreon, After Forever]. The fifteen tracks, spread over three “acts” on this album make up what is part one of a two part concept, telling a tale of love, destruction and survival in the aftermath of this power struggle.

An introduction video from Reign Of The Architect and a trailer for Rise can both be viewed below.

Reign Of The Architect is the brainchild of Yuval Kramer [Amaseffer guitarist], and was formed in 2008 in Israel. He comments on the new album, stating:

“The story-line is an allegory of the powers that rage inside the human soul. Titles like “good” and “evil”, “right” or “wrong” are subjective terms which we only use to legitimize our actions. We wanted to focus on the survival instinct, which, in times of need, forces us to victimize ourselves and bend the rules just to turn the scale. Then we have to destroy this self and re-build a new one who will eventually do exactly the same in the next similar situation. We wanted to point out this eternal battle between creation and destruction that wages inside the human psyche since the beginning of time, to grasp this feeling of being alone when it is most crowded.”
