Reforged, the sophomore outing from Indiana's ZEPHANIAH, builds upon the power thrash foundation laid by their debut, 2008's Stories From The Book Of Metal, to unleash a catchier and more dynamic intensity—made possible through the refined musicianship of the group's new, markedly more diverse lineup. Songs like "Reforged," "Destiny," and "Judgement" provide the infectious blasts of thrash for which ZEPHANIAH is known, alongside increasingly intense rhythms and shredding neoclassical influences. Highlights include a Mad Max-inspired trilogy; beer-drinking anthem "Battle Hymn Of The Victorious"; and progressive epic "Quest For The Royal Crown," which adds variety and enthralls the listener from start to finish.
Unlike Stories From The Book Of Metal, which was tracked in a mere week, the band spent more than a full year arduously self-producing every last detail of Reforged. Finally mixed by Tom Beuchel and mastered by Death Dealer guitarist Stu Marshall in May of 2016, ZEPHANIAH is now prepared to deliver a raging, filler-free collection—in which no two songs are alike!
“We have worked long and hard on this album, despite the setbacks, and we are super excited to be releasing this album with Divebomb and Spiritual Beast. Both labels have worked with us before in some way or another and are exactly what we need for Reforged!” says Justin Zych, lead guitarist of ZEPHANIAH. Pre-order packages for the US release will be available via both Divebomb’s and Zephaniah’s e-stores and will ship out in December to fans who cannot wait and want to grab some extra perks!
