OMEGA REIGN Arise Album Review

Omega Reign review at Zombie Ritual Zine



Somehow this band reminds me a lot early Anthrax, when Belladona used to sing in heavy metal mode and the roots on the genre were as thick as strong. If you remember the song “Medusa”, you will know what I’m talking about. Coming from Boston, these band was formed in 1998 by the guitarist Gene Felix, and according to the Bio, they shared stage with many big bands in those days, but seems like they didn’t released properly a Full length album. Well, now is the day and it’s a fucking piece of heavy metal  with great structures, solid guitar riffs and a high pitched vocalist called Hank Perry who knows how to use his throat on the right moment. The band sounds quite professional and with no arrogant pretentions, this is just heavy metal from the heart and forged in good melodies. Another aspect I liked is the personality of every song, which each one sounds quite distinctive from each other. My favorite track is “Prision in your eyes” which denotes quite good ideas and a matured composition influenced by Queensryche, Iron Maiden and lots more. The production seems to be a mix of modernity and organic mode, and this resulting is quite effective. This is a great debut album – Victor Varas
