Draconian Reign comment: “The new single, ‘Infernal Requiem’, is a tribute to the elemental power of fire, told from the point of view of a nihilist. They seek to bend fire to their will, knowing eventually all living things must decay. The reason we chose this song as our first single is that it builds upon the sound of our new EP, while introducing more death metal elements.
On their recent label signing, they state: “We are unbelievably excited to sign with Seek & Strike. They are consistently on the cutting edge of modern metal and we’re extremely proud to be part of such a diverse and talented roster.
Speaking of their upcoming EP: “We definitely spent more time planning each song as a journey for the listener.
There are more orchestral passages, but we are very much a riff-driven band. We take influence from bands such as Dimmu Borgir and The Black Dahlia Murder, but run through the lens of gothic fantasy and all things macabre. If you dig extreme metal, you’re in for a treat here. Enjoy and we’ll be seeing you on tour across the UK later this year.
Draconian Reign are a symphonic blackened deathcore band from the cold heart of the United Kingdom. Combining punishing breakdowns and harsh vocals with the razor sharp riffage of melodic death metal and theatrics of symphonic black metal, the band’s debut EP Necromantic established Draconian Reign as an important new band in the UK deathcore scene.
The group appeared at Bloodstock 2022 off the back of their debut EP, and are now looking ahead to the release of their new EP Tragedy Eternal.
The band will be on tour across the UK with Existentialist in May:
Draconian Reign are:James Hibberd – Vocals
James Mackellar-Still – Guitars
Cal Cruse-Morrell – Guitars
Andy Crawford – Bass
Kelsey James – Drums
