An Album By

Signum Regis

Review by

I am not positive as to whether the band claims to be Christian in nature, but this release is of interest for two reasons.
First, the album is, as the band says, “diverse and quite (a) deep concept album” about the enslavement of the Israelites in Egypt. And secondly, the band decided to include some of their favorite vocalists as guest vocalists, and they include our friend Matt Smith of Theocracy and Lance King (Pyramaze, Balance of Power).

Joining them are other guest vocalists Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum), Daisa Munhoz (Vandroya, Soulspell), Michael Vescera (Obsession, Animetal USA) and others.

Signum Regis’s previous releases leaned a bit more to the neoclassical metal genre, but this time around they come off as a bit more straight forward melodic metal with a dose of power metal thrown in for good measure.

I would say this release is quite a worthy addition to the collection of any melodic metal fan.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
