Interview: Reign Supreme leave Deathwish Records, join Mediaskare Records, announce title of upcoming EP

Philly hardcore act Reign Supreme mentioned in a recent interview that they are leaving Deathwish Inc. They will be releasing their new EP entitled “”Sky Burial” on Mediaskare Records. Here’s what they had to say about the upcoming EP,

I think a lot of hardcore kids will talk shit, but lets be real here, we’ve never done well at united blood, we don’t tour with the newest hype bands every year. Those kids dont like us anyway, FUCK EM. Kids who do like our band will be siked, and I think they will be glad to have some heavy new jams from us. The new stuff is a little different from our older stuff, but I think its way angrier, and more mature. Its just meaner.” When asked about the decision to change labels they said, “Yeah, its not a very popular move, to leave deathwish. I think we just honestly felt like we weren’t going to be a band much longer if we didn’t start trying some new shit out. That meant changing our approach to songwriting, surrounding ourselves with new and supportive people, and just being prepared to take a chance. Mediaskare is a label that a lot of bands we play with are on, and they’ve always treated those bands very well. I guess we thought it was time to put out our music to a new audience, and try to step out of our comfort zone a little bit.

The band’s last release, “Testing the Limits of the Infinite,” came out in 2009.

Album Review: Reign Supreme – “Testing The Limits Of Infinite”

reign-supreme-testing-the-limits-of-infiniteThese days the lines between punk, hardcore, and metal have become somewhat blurred. As a result, any band with a breakdown gets slapped with the “metalcore” label. Despite this fact, there are some hold outs in the hardcore scene. The style I am talking about is what bands like Hatebreed and Terror have been doing for quite some time now. Luckily for us, the style continues on as Reign Supreme bring us their latest release, Testing The Limits Of Infinite.

Let me break it down for you. First, the sound. To me this album just has a crunchier and heavier sound than some of the other music that is in the same genre. It just has this gnarling bite that definitely makes you feel the intensity. Next is the fact that this album brings all the elements of modern hardcore to the table. The album is littered with gang vocals, quick circle pit beats, and yes, even some breakdowns all with a slightly darker metal tinge that puts them right on the fence between the two genres, but yet separates Reign Supreme from their peers. Where everyone else is doing syncopated double bass ridden breakdowns, Reign Supreme keeps it a little simpler but still brings the mosh though this may put off some listeners who aren’t into that sort of thing.  If you are, however, this record rocks and you should definitely check it out.
