After 5 years of almost complete silence, the symphonic power metallers ReinXeed is back!
They released 6 albums in 6 years starting with ’The Light’ back in 2008 to ’A New World’ in 2013 , then they went undercover.
ReinXeed is where Tommy Johansson, current guitarist in Sabaton, started his metal journey!
For 5 years they might have been quiet for the public, but not in the studio. Hard work with new music has been going on, which is by far their best and most well produced to this date!
Today ReinXeed is Tommy Johansson (Guitar, Vocals), Alex Oriz (Guitar), Chris David (Bass) and with them on drums for Sabaton Open Air they will bring their good friend Daniel Sjögren from Twilight Force.
This marks the comeback of ReinXeed and their first gig in 5 years, they promise a hell of a show!
The Alliance will rise again!
V’s history reaches back to the ’90s, when the band’s original personnel (two of whom had formed the hardcore band Amend in 1994) were amalgamating a blend of hardcore, death, and thrash metal. An EP named VI was recorded in 2006 (but just released last year), and then the band went on a hiatus for a decade, emerging again now with Pathogenisis.
And with the passage of so many years, V’s sound and conceptual focus has changed, the music becoming heavier and more freighted with doom, their world-view transitioning into visions of a nihilistic future and “a world crumbling to its knees”
