Enemy Reign Posts New Track Online

Decibelmagazine.com is now hosting a stream of “Bathed In Flames” from Denver death metal overlords Enemy Reign. Listen to the track right here.

“Bathed In Flames” comes off the band’s self-issued "Between Hell And Oblivion" full-length, which was recorded at Flatline Audio under the watchful gaze of producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Martriden, Cobalt et al). The record offers up 11 tracks of deathgrind viciousness as well as the debut of vocalist Stevie Boiser, who replaced former member Sherwood Webber (Skinless).

Comments guitarist Nick Guenther of the offering: “This album is made for the brutal few. It's dark and unapologetic. During the writing process, we all drew from different influences, which helped keep the material fresh from song to song. We never restrict ourselves to any sub genre or current metal trend. While spirit breaking brutality was our main focus, we made sure to keep that classic and catchy Enemy Reign riff-age intact.”

Adds Boiser: “We set out to make something that we would want to listen to, and that's exactly what we did. Between Hell And Oblivion is the next step in our evolution and the apotheosis of what Enemy Reign stands for; fast and brutal death metal. If that's what you’re into check it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed.”

Enemy Reign Streaming New Song

Today GunShyAssassin unveils “Forged From Suffering,” from Denver death metal behemoths Enemy Reign. The tune comes off the band’s recently completed "Between Hell And Oblivion" long player, which was recorded at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Martriden, Cobalt et al) and offers up 11 tracks of mile-high deathgrind brutality as well as the debut of vocalist, Stevie Boiser who replace Sherwood Webber (Skinless) last Summer.

Savor the audio punishment at this location.

Comments drummer Andon Guenther of the song: "I think 'Forged From Suffering' is one of the songs that defines our sound and gives listeners and insight into our personal musical tastes. It's got the d-beat/Discharge/Motorhead influence, coupled with our love for all things grindcore and just good, old fashioned, no-frills death metal.

"It's also a song we wrote as a follow up to the song ‘Means To A Dead End,’ and the writing approach was very deliberate to incorporate those ideas and give listeners an updated version of that song. It just rocks and that's all we really intended it to do. No more and no less. Moreover, it's a song that blends many genres but doesn't sound like it's a forced issue, and I think that's why it means so much to me on a personal level and that's a skill that Enemy Reign has been honing since its inception."

Commented the band on the output: “Between Hell And Oblivion is a huge milestone for Enemy Reign both as a band and for us individually. It means we didn't give up even when we were written off, and accomplishing that feels great. Musically, we set out to refine what we feel our style of death metal is. We aren't pretentious people, and this is not a pretentious album. It's a no nonsense death metal album that pays homage to all the bands we grew up with and love, while keeping an eye on how we can add our own artistic license and create something we could listen to everyday. And we do...so enjoy the reign.”

Enemy Reign Announces Split Release

Italy's Modus Delicti and Colorado's Enemy Reign have teamed up for a new upcoming split release through Selfmadegod Records. The label commented on the bands:

"Modus Delicti was formed in 2004 by Clod the Ripper (Septycal Gorge, Blasphemer, etc.) and has since unleashed a trio of splits, an EP and a full-length album, in addition to multiple compilation appearances. The lyrics of these new songs are taken from original letters sent to the police from infamous serial killers including BTK, David Berkowitz and Jack the Ripper, and the music is tighter than ever, as always blending elements of brutal death and grindcore.

"Previously led by former Skinless vocalist Sherwood Webber, Enemy Reign's lineup also features drummer Andon Guenther, co-creator of Sick Drummer Magazine. Formed in Denver in 2008, Enemy Reign self-released their debut Means To A Dead End EP in 2008, which brought immediate worldwide acclaim, eventually gaining official European distribution via Neurotic Records. Every moment of these tracks rage with the intense Enemy Reign concoction of early 90’s death metal, late 80’s grindcore and brutal East Coast hardcore, and are the last to feature the signature vocals of Webber, who has since left the band."
