Reign Supreme has premiered a lyric video for "The Hopelessly Devoted," which will appear on the band's upcoming EP "Sky Burial" (in stores March 19th through Mediaskare Records). Check out the clip below.
The 7-track EP, which was produced by Will Putney (Stray From The Path, Hundredth), features guest appearances by Scott Wade of Comeback Kid, Chris Colohan of Cursed/Burning Love, and Mike Moynihan/Steve Muscemi of Hollow Earth.
“Sky Burial comes from the Tibetan tradition of bringing the dead to a mountain, or other place where vultures gather. The vultures and other animals consume the corpse, and hence, it becomes a vessel to feed and care for these creatures,” explained vocalist Jay Pepito on the title for the EP. “It's a cool idea, wherein your empty shell of a person becomes of some utility to some other thing, and I just found the idea of that fascinating; it makes more sense to me than embalming the dead in an attempt to preserve some self-imposed idea of what they were like in life, and then tossing that homemade mannequin into a pine box, and letting it rot. It seems to me to be more pragmatic, to let yourself be the thing that sustains your ecosystem. It reminds us that we are just animals, that we are not special because of our smart cars and Facebook, and that we, in a sense, are simply carrion.” More...

"Sky Burial comes from the Tibetan tradition of bringing the dead to a mountain, or other place where vultures gather. The vultures and other animals consume the corpse, and hence, it becomes a vessel to feed and care for these creatures. It’s a cool idea, wherein your empty shell of a person becomes of some utility to some other thing, and I just found the idea of that fascinating; it makes more sense to me than embalming the dead in an attempt to preserve some self-imposed idea of what they were like in life, and then tossing that homemade mannequin into a pine box, and letting it rot.

Deathwish Inc. Band, Reign Supreme announced yesterday that there is a pre-order available for their upcoming release "Testing The Limits of Infinite," which is scheduled to release June 23rd. Deathwish Inc states,
"'Testing The Limits Of Infinite' is Reign Supreme's highly anticipated debut full length album. Produced by Will Putney at The Machine Shop (Lamb Of God, VOD, Every Time I Die), "Testing The Limits..." takes the accessible metallic hardcore foundation popularized by many, and injects a fresh warm blood deep within it. The result is a new breed of anthemic metallic hardcore; immaculately executed, intensely heavy, and refreshingly unpredictable. Songs like "Persevere And Overcome" and "Slipping Away" smash through expectations with earth moving power, while the introspective instrumental "Waiting" as well as the winding "To Live And Die (In Vain)" show a sonic diversity rarely found in heavy music. Proving that Reign Supreme are a true anomaly in today's music world, playing the role of both the hammer and the nail."
Hear two songs from "Testing The Limits Of Infinite" on their Myspace.
Reign Supreme, Narrows, and Pulling Teeth are all on the newly released RevHQ sampler, "Sampler Fi." You can download the sampler for free here. A couple of other bands you may be familiar with are Underneath The Gun and Blackened.
