“Reign Of Terror is a fleet, furious, high-voltage charge of thrash and speed metal, with venom coursing through its blood-stream and plenty of viciously barbed hooks in every song.” – No Clean Singing
Today, Arlington, Texas-based thrash-fueled speed demons, RABID FLESH EATERS, drop their Reign Of Terror full-length upon the masses. In celebration of its release, No Clean Singing is streaming the record in full noting, “Reign Of Terror is a fleet, furious, high-voltage charge of thrash and speed metal, with venom coursing through its blood-stream and plenty of viciously barbed hooks in every song. But the music also includes skull-smashing grooves, along with some punk and industrial flavors as well. It’s a non-stop thrill ride through a demolition zone that will batter you black and blue but leave your bruised face grinning and your heart beating like it’s just been punctured with a needle full of adrenaline. Part super-heated frenzy and part pile-driving groove monster, it’s Grade A headbang fuel. And to go along with a lot of obvious instrumental skill, the vocals are also hell on wheels, displaying a lot of variety and passion – from raw yells to hair-raising screams, from lycanthropic growls and howls to punk snarls. And the vocalist can turn on a dime (check out the high yells that rise up immediately from the throaty growls in ‘Industry Killers’ as an example).

Produced by the late great Mike Scaccia (Rigor Mortis, Ministry), and co-produced, recorded and mixed by Kerry Crafton (Scratch Acid, Deadhorse), with artwork by Carcass John Fossum, RABID FLESH EATERS‘s Reign Of Terror spews forth nine predatory tracks centered around lycanthropy, societal decline, serial killers, terrorists and imminent global doom. Additionally, Reign Of Terror features a guitar solo by Scaccia on opening track, “Lycanthrope.”
