Reality Grey has been making their rounds through the Italian metal scene since 2004, having spent years touring and playing alongside bands such as Deicide and Municipal Waste, and with three well-received full-lengths under their belts. This year, they will be adding a new album Beneath This Crown to their legacy.
The second single from the forthcoming record is Powerblast, a very groovy song where the guitars and drums create an immense monolithic wall of sound. The last third of the track is overtaken with brutal, evil riffs. Reality Grey explains the track further in their own words:
“Powerblast has the feel right in its name. It’s a powerful song that doesn’t take any prisoners. We feel very attached to it as it has everything we like in a metal track, aggression, and groove. There’s an ‘evil’ theme that creeps underneath the whole song that contributes to the overall heaviness of it. We can’t wait to play it live, people will bang their head until their necks fall off!”
Until they can hit the stage again, Reality Grey hopes that Beneath This Crown will tide over fans with its aggressive, melodic vocals and razor-sharp guitar solos. According to them, the creative process for this release has been very meticulous and nothing has been left to chance. On this offering, the music has affected the lyrics, there is a lot of anger and a bit of sadness.
Completely aggressive and refreshingly catchy, Reality Grey is recommended for fans of Scar Symmetry, Lamb of God and Unearth.
