Lightning Swords Of Death
It began seven years ago when a pact was made within a dilapidated house hidden in Southern California. It was here that Autarch, Roskva and Menno found themselves in agreement that should the occult sciences be applied to music, the results would prove extremely dangerous to their sanity, yet yield spectacular results. LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, as they would name it, would be in itself a meticulously designed hyper-sigil constructed to direct and antagonize the limitless dark energy that lurks within the less navigable chasms of the human mind and the space between spaces.
In 2007 the band unleashed The Golden Plague upon the earth. This declaration of unholy war was well-received and inspired a tour of the west coast and north western blocks of the United States. Audiences witnessed performances by men possessed by insane devils. LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH live continuously proved to be a conqueror's fury leaving an ashen stain on every stage they destroyed. The tour began sharing battleground with bands like Nachtmystium and High On Fire and concluded with LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH opening for Danzig during the mighty Blackest Of The Black tour. Said Decibel magazine of The Golden Plague, "I truly wanted to know how USBM crew LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH get their sound. It's seriously crushing and vicious and yet it sounds like it's 10 miles away. Or 10 miles underground. Uncanny. You know, it's an art sounding this fucked up. …'Let This Knife Lead You To Us' has a riff worth killing for." SOD magazine simply called it "a torrent of anguish" while Pit added, "LSOD leave no face un-ripped with a blackened death approach that puts as much importance on memorable hooks and downtrodden groove as it does on blast beat blaspheme." The second release took the form of a split CD with comrades Valdur which was only available for a limited time at performances during the country wide 2008 Blodhevn tour. Metal Maniacs called LSOD's part a "heavy, bestial and brutal assault bringing to mind a young and hungry Thornspawn." The split continues to infect all who experience its unyielding expression of true chaos, but it's only a precursor of the grand and terrible horror that is looming in the future like a headsman's shadow…

Reign Of Lies
Channeling their inner rage and bringing grit and groove back to the metal scene, Reign of Lies is revitalizing the genre, sticking to their root, and playing with a fearless conviction that is lacking in many of today’s bands.
After recording three albums and touring across Europe, Gianni Rosati “Giro” moved to L.A. and began his solo project Reign of Lies with the vision of finding musicians with the same passion and determination as himself. He went to the prestigious Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California where he found those traits in Mashadi Maximus, Greg Kate and Yoyo Bianchi.
In the summer of 2012 Reign of Lies began recording their debut album “The New Empire” mixed by Lee Wanner, which will be released in early 2013.” They are also endorsed by the globally renowned clothing company “Keetch” who also endorse bands such as Meshuggah, Unearth, PDP, and Fear Factory.
Reign of Lies is ready to bring their unique style and presence to fans across the globe, and immortalize themselves among metals elite.
