Being one of the veteran acts within the deathcore/slam genre I was obviously stoked to get to review Germany’s slam kings Acranius third full-length Reign of Terror. Having had two years filled with touring with other heavy hitters Ingested back in 2015 and now lastly together with labelmates Within Destruction they are finally back to drop a behemoth of an album.
I know it’s only January and the year is literally less than 48h old when I write this but damn will it be hard to beat this album in sheer brutality. I know many of you out there had Vulvodynia and Within Destruction as the best albums for 2016 and that’s awesome, I think this is even better though! The breakdowns, brutal slamming and gut-wrenching vocals will leave you begging for more.
From the start to finish you will headbang to this album. This is one of those albums where I have a hard time saying which one my favorite song is too, since they are all good and exactly what I am looking for in slamming deathcore. Want to get your head banging again and start off 2017 brutal? Then grab Reign of Terror by Acranius on January 27th metalhead!
