New Signum Regis Album Announced!

Post by Kerrick on Tue Sep 22, 2015 11:42 am

From their Facebook:

We are excited to announce that our new album "Chapter IV: The Reckoning" will be released on November 20th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records!
Band founder Ronnie König comments about the new album:
“It was the plan since get go, to make our best album so far. After releasing the EP earlier this year, it was clear that the bar was set pretty high. We worked very hard and we believe that we managed to lift the bar even higher in every aspect. Some of the songs on the album will become the classics of Signum Regis, that's for sure. There will be 10 new songs on the album, none of them appeared on the EP, which makes both the album and the "Through The Storm EP" a good buy for the fans.”
"Chapter IV: The Reckoning" was mastered by Jens Bogren [Symphony X, Opeth, Arch Enemy] and the artwork was created by Jan Yrlund [Delain, Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani].
Check out an album teaser at YouTube: https://youtu.be/RHPA0i5ZaC0
"Chapter IV: The Reckoning" track listing:
01. Lost And Found
02. The Secret Of The Sea
03. The Voice In The Wilderness
04. Prophet Of Doom
05. The Magi
06. Quitters Never Win
07. Tempter Of Evil
08. When Freedom Fails
09. The Kingdom Of Heaven
10. Bells Are Tolling
"Chapter IV: The Reckoning" can be pre-ordered here:
http://www.signum-regis.com

Should be great!  I'm stuck at work so I can't listen to it right now, but if it's anywhere near the quality of their latest EP... it's gonna be mighty good!

Sounds epic.  At the moment the EP is my album of the year, so this is going to give me some kind of issue!  Which will be my album of the year, Signum Regis, or Signum Regis?!

Ahhh!

It's available for pre-order on Amazon also. It's $14.98 delivered. Hard to beat that. Now it's just the agony of waiting.

Two years ago I didn't know who these guys were. Now they are one of my favorite bands. They are much better than the recognition they get.

This is a very good band. They have some mystical lyrics sometimes, but overall some very good metal.

The lyrics are more direct on this one. Songs like The Voice in the Wilderness and Kingdom of Heaven jumped out on my first listen through.

Yes, this is definitely their most "Christian" album lyrically.  And musically it's some of their best too.

Do you think this new Signum Regis is better than the new Diviner?

Just curious. Smile

One is a debut, as opposed to an established list of excellent albums from SR. The guitar work on the SR absolutely shreds. Both are strong, strong  albums.

From Angelic Warlord ...

I like to think of Diviner as a spiritually based band, at least in light of song titles such as “Kingdom Come”, “Riders From The East”, “Come Into My Glory” and “Sacred War”.  “Come Into My Glory”, in which the group recorded a lyric video, stands in support of this:

The night of salvation
The ending of damnation
No death any longer
No fear, we’ll be stronger


They will come as a rolling thunder
From the land of grace and destiny
They will come as a bolt of lightning
To your soul will bring eternity


We’ll rise to hear the voice of our dreams

Come into my glory…

I had heard that Diviner was a Christian Metal band. But ... perhaps I heard wrong.

After a few listens, I'm still really digging the new Signum Regis a lot!  It's a very good album with no songs I don't like.  My one complaint would be that the songs do sound kinda similar.  Many of the melodies sound fairly similar to those of other songs from the album and previous EP.  But it's a good sound so no real complaints from me.  flower

I feel like Christian Power Metal keeps getting more and more talent lately.

Both albums are excellent, but different. Signum Regis is melody driven power metal, while Diviner is more of a crunchy, riff driven metal. I like both, which makes it hard to choose. I think it might come down to one's preference in genres.
