Signum Regis was formed in 2007 by bass player Ronnie König. The highly respected vocalist Göran Edman [ex. Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum] joined the band and they started working on their debut album. The self-titled debut album was released during 2008 through Locomotive Records and received great reviews from around the world.

In 2010 Signum Regis signed with Inner Wound Recordings and released the impressive concept album “The Eyes Of Power”, still with Göran on vocals. The album was received really well, especially in Europe. With this album it was clear that Signum Regis had found their own sound within the melodic/neoclassical metal scene.

The third Signum Regis album “Exodus” was released in 2013 and it featured many different vocalists like Göran Edman (ex. Yngwie Malmsteen), Lance King (ex. Pyramaze, Balance of Power), Matt Smith (Theocracy), Michael Vescera (Obsession), Daisa Munhoz (Vandroya, Soulspell) and more. “Exodus” was a bit more straight melodic metal than the previous album, but the classic Signum Regis elements were still there.

Early 2014 the band decided to make Mayo Petranin their new lead vocalist. Mayo had already done shows with the band and he also contributed vocals to one of the songs on “Exodus”, so it felt like a natural move. During 2013 and 2014 Signum Regis did some shows in their home country Slovakia, but they also performed in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.

During 2014 Signum Regis started to work on new material and it was decided that a 6 track EP would be released in May 2015 and the fourth full-length album during fall 2015. The EP entitled “Through The Storm” received excellent feedback from fans and media, with many of them calling it the best Signum Regis release so far. Two music videos were also recorded and released for the tracks ‘Living Well’ and ‘Come And Take It’.

Both “Through The Storm” and “Chapter IV: The Reckoning” showed that Signum Regis was able to develop and improve everything from song-writing and musicianship to production and the visual part of the band.

In 2015, the band took a part on a band contest “Spark Fresh Blood” organized by the top Czech/Slovak rock magazine Spark. From all 400 bands, who took part in this, Signum Regis won the 1st place and the price was manufacturing of 1000 CDs. The band used this price to release the 10th anniversary album called Decennium Primum, which was released in 2017. The album was, again, well received and many felt, that it raised the bar even a bit higher than it was before.

In 2018, the band surprisingly parted ways with the singer Mayo Petranin. The split was handled in a gentlemanly manner. The band played with Mayo all shows, which were already booked, even after the official split.

New vocalist Jota Fortinho entered the band and the new album “The Seal of a New World” was released via Beyond The Storm Productions late 2019, and was received very well among fans and by media around the world.

Signum Regis are now back with the 7-track EP “Flag of Hope”, again mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Evergrey). On this EP you will find all sonic trademarks of the band. Fans can enjoy fast, melodic, heavy, mid tempo, rocking songs, captivating instrumental songs and an impressive cover of Angra‘s ‘Stand Away’.
