Anarchy Reigns Release Lead Track From Forthcoming Album For Free

British metal titans, Anarchy Reigns, one of the biggest social media hits of 2017, are expanding beyond their legions of followers performing acts of minor insurrection worldwide to bring their music to an even larger audience. With typical disregard for convention, they are launching the campaign trail to their much anticipated debut album by GIVING AWAY the lead track, Hypocrisy.

Whether this is a stroke of genius or commercial suicide remains to be seen but you can’t argue that they’re leaving their huge fan-base shortchanged! Hypocrisy draws heavily (literally) from the British tradition of no-nonsense metal and hard rock but an emphasis on cramming as many riffs and soaring chorus’ into 3 and a bit minutes as possible, though also nodding to more European and American influences, with elements of both industrial and symphonic metal.

All of this would be all well and good but Anarchy Reign’s biggest hook is their frontman, Hitch, a force of nature and a tornado of quips, rants and pithy missives, his very clear agenda being to bring down any element of authority and power which has over-stepped the mark. Such is the case with Hypocrisy which, well, can speak for itself.

Brand new ShadowIcon EP is more than ‘Smoke & Mirrors’

Innovative double CD release features a 2nd CD of instrumental versions out March 16th

Capture

Born and raised in Slovenia, ShadowIcon are a six piece melodic metal band with a heavy impact and a compelling lead female vocalist. Taking elements from metal and thrash, but marrying them to a tuneful vocal and a great appreciation for a stylish groove, the  band serve up a potent blend of heaviness on new EP ‘Smoke and Mirrors’.

Their previous album ‘Empire in Ruins’ picked up excellent reviews around Europe and the US, now they’re back with a brand new EP totalling six epic songs, plus instrumental/karaoke versions so fans can sing along at home.

For a taste of what ShadowIcon are all about, check out their moody video for EP track ‘If I Was the One’ which is out on March 9th.

Mixed and mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind and Thomas Geiger (Helloween, Blind Guardian) the EP was released on December 15th. Designed to build on the new, melodic metal sound of the debut album, the songs are a fusion of different tastes and styles from the band’s three songwriters, all blending into great cocktail of pounding drums, searing guitars and piercing vocals.

With over 50,000 fans already on Facebook, this is a band who have already come a long way. And, judging by this EP, there’s nothing that can stop them any time soon.

The ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ EP is out March 16th.
