Reign of Glory – “All Will Bow”

Reign of Glory was born in 2021 when bassist Roger Dale Martin (Vengeance Rising, Once Dead, Die Happy) and guitarist Nick Layton (FireWolfe, Q5) partnered up writing material for a classic metal album with a message of hope and faith in these trying times. They had just released Roxology, a metal instrumental album of hymns, earlier in the year and were eager to do something with a full band replete with singer. Through a happenstance Die Happy reunion interview on Sanctuary International, they got in contact with vocalist Robyn Kyle Basuari (Die Happy, Red Sea). To round out the band in the rhythm seat is Jim Chaffin (The Crucified, Deliverance, The Blamed).

All Will Bow is a solid album that gives a nod to the 80s with a modern execution. The ten songs on the album provide enough variety for this reviewer to enjoy without being bored. The core of RoG’s sound is a solid rhythm section, melodic guitars, and a quite capable vocalist singing on top.

First thing I liked about the album is the musical variety. “Forever and Ever” starts out with a somewhat thrash metal riff that sounded close to Megadeth’s “High Speed Dirt.” But once the drums and bass come in, it calms down a bit, but still quite metal. “Welcome to Reality” is a mid-tempo grooving rock tune that kept my foot tapping. “Samson’s Kryptonite” had RoG move into a bluesy southern rock territory and we have the requisite ballad in “Love Came to Die.” And that was just the first half of the album.

Nordic Mission is proud to announce that the 3rd Dalit album will be released on May 5th this year! This is very well played doom metal by one of the world’s most underrated bands! Slow, atmospheric and spiritual! CD and limited edition vinyl can be pre-ordered now! By both formats for a great deal!

Death/doom band Dalit from Norway is one of those underground metal gems that more people need to hear. “Moksha” is their third full-length album and charms with its brooding atmosphere and melodic riffs.

The Members of Dalit has for the last 20 years been involved in acts such as Aspiration, Cloth and the newly founded “Nattmannen”. But Dalit has always been the main drive, and with small tours and several gigs around Europe the band have harnessed a small but dedicated following that is certain to grow with “Moksha”.

Rockshots Records is proud to announce their signing of Walk With Titans for the release of their debut album “Olympian Dystopia” on May 26th, 2023. Based in Montreal, Canada, the band’s goal is to bring all the epic elements you’d expect from a power metal band with a twist of Greek Mythology. On “Olympian Dystopia” the quintet showcases their writing and technical skills.

Efficient, epic, well executed, heavy, and mythical, this is what power metal fans will discover during 50 minutes of “Olympian Dystopia” brought forth by Nikko Cyr (drums), Nick Maugy (rhythm guitar), Louis Jacques (lead guitar) (ex-Blackguard), Lydz Grondin (bass), and Jonathan Vézina (vocals & orchestrations).

”We wanted to make a straightforward power metal album without compromising the epic side. I think listeners will realize that and enjoy it. We made this album during the pandemic and it kept us sane, we hope fans will find the same joy in listening to it as we had to make it! We bring some ancient Greek Myths to the forefront like Eurydice and Herakles, while others are more subtle like ‘Edge of Time’, which is Khronos representing time eating us all. Other tracks on the record we made as an analogy for societal issues.” adds guitarist Louis Jacques.

When a Hero rises anew, a Legend is born – Angus McSix is back from the dead!

After the heroic death of Prince Angus, hope seemed to be fading for Scotland and the whole galaxy. But our mighty hero has fought his way back into the world of the living and presents, as Angus McSix, the debut album, Angus McSix And The Sword Of Power, set for release on April21, via Napalm Records.

The new band, featuring Angus McSix (Thomas Winkler), archdemon Seebulon (Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann), Nordic muscle berserker Skaw! (Manu Lotter) and the beautiful queen of the Lazer-Amazons, Thalestris (Thalia Bellazecca), contains adventures of unprecedented proportions within it. Risen from the realm of the dead, Angus McSix is the last hope to free Scotland and mankind from all evil.

After the resounding success of their first single ever, ‘Master Of The Universe’, reaching hundreds of thousands of views in no time, the epic adventure continues with the spectacular single and ‘Sixcalibur’ and its official music video. The sword of power gives the prince unprecedented powers that are used in epic battles for the good of mankind. True to the motto “One Better”, the sword rises one level for every goblin killed.

Angus McSix on ‘Sixcalibur’: “Its magical blade has blocked the passageway between the world of the living and the realm of death. For a hundred thousand years it served as a seal to banish the source of all evil in the hell of hell. Now Angus has drawn the sword and thus became Angus McSix. However, this has broken the seal, and Archdemon Seebulon returns to the world of the living. To defeat the origin of all evil, the sword must be brought to the highest level; only then it becomes Sixcalibur – Sword of Power!”
