The killer street thrash band known as REIGN was formed in 2013 in Chicago IL. Fusing death metal rhythms , progressive song layering, old school thrash riffs, and a punk attitude, REIGN is a sonic force to be reckoned with.
Throughout 2013 they built an underground following, gained a reputation for high energy shows and toured the midwest (without any recorded material!). In 2014 REIGN released a single, "New World Order"(DEMO). In early 2015 REIGN released their first self-produced EP "WMD" and began a small scale national tour, playing dates on the West Coast and Midwest.
Everything Must Die
EVERYTHING MUST DIE is a unique Chicago three-piece grindcore band that mixes elements of hardcore, death metal, punk and all forms of extreme music to create a violent, intense sound with all three members as singers. Guitarist/singer Ryan Richards (EARTHBURNER, NO CONVICTION), bassist/singer John Seidelmann (NO CONVICTION) and drummer/singer Ryan Cawley (DEVANGELIST) were in search of a new sound in March 0f 2012, and within one month formed EVERYTHING MUST DIE, quickly recorded their TIME TO DIE demo, and went on the road as the opener for D.R.I, sharing their gear and cheap beer across the Midwest. Afterward, the trio hunkered down to perfect their sound and write new music, shredding the stage with bands like CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOJIRA, CAR BOMB, and many more. E.M.D. is currently recording their debut album LIVE TO KILL at Mercenary Digital Studio, which they promise will be more brutal, intense, and offensive, or double your grind back!
