Band: REIGN MAKER
Who: A -piece Australian prog rock band formed in Melbourne, Victoria in 2020. Reign Maker is the collaborative project of passionate, activists who weave politically charged, social commentary throughout their songs to raise awareness and give voice to a wide range of current issues faced in the world today.
New single: THE KILLING
“With this song Reign Maker have loudly declared themselves as BLM allies and help to take a stance against racial discrimination and police brutality needlessly taking the lives of innocent people. ‘The Killing’ lyric video is a bold statement using interesting juxtaposition and symbology that helps unravel the meaning woven within the lyricism. The imagery and news footage used in the background draws attention to the social issue of systemic racism and police brutality whilst also touching on hope and the power of social movement to create change.”
Turn Up The Volume: Goosebumps all the way. This mighty-powered and impassioned ballad blows your mind in sound and vision. Its metallic sonority and its titanic fervency send shivers down your spine. Astonishing.
And the monumental heart-and-soul cutting vocals are just flabbergasting, making me
think of the haunting voice of Tarja Turunen from Finnish metalheads Nightwish. Midway, when the decibels go sky-high, the melodramatic delirium increases to a jaw-dropping level.
This stunning symphony expresses the song’s scary truth lyrics about discrimination, racism, and the awful related police brutality in a most worrying and puzzling way.
Goosebumps all the way…
