SONIC REIGN “Monument In Black”

SONIC REIGN
“Monument In Black”
(Apostasy)
This German black metal band is being hailed as some sort of saviour for the German black metal scene. I don’t know if I’ll go as far as that. I’ve heard a couple or three bands that are strong enough to keep the German black metal spirit alive. But I wouldn’t mind if this turned out to be one hell of a strong album. I was late in discovering Satyricon but now that I have I hear them all over the place. I get a distinct Satyricon feeling (if not the only one) from SONIC REIGN too. It is in the beat so to speak. There is something to this album that got my blood pumping faster. I wouldn’t say that this is simple music but there is that easy go feel to it even though this is black metal. And black metal it is. Make no mistake of it. There is also another edge to it that I know that I’ve heard before but I can’t put my finger on just yet. It will come to me when I least expect it. No pretentions, just great music. Anders Ekdahl
