Reign of Bullets started with Sonny (guitar) and Kevin (drums). Together they were in a thrash metal band called Electric chair (2006). After a while Kevin met Dyon (bass) at a music clinic in which Kevin and Dyon were both teachers.
After a few years Electric chair fell apart. Kevin, Dyon and Sonny started to team up and formed Secrets II Eternity. A band which already started to sound more like the sound we have today, only with a more pop vibe. Secrets II Eternity broke up Kevin and Sonny started a new band in which we played covers from Guns ’n roses. This is when Quint (vocals) came into the picture.
After a few rehearsals, we figured out that playing covers wasn’t going to be what we wanted to do. So, we started a new band only this time we were short of a guitar player. We needed on for the thick metal like sound, melodies and harmonies. This is when Martijn joined us. Martijn is an old friend of Sonny, and had his background in the black metal scene. At first we started off with a bunch of old songs from our old band Secrets II Eternity and after a while we started writing new music.
Influenced by bands like: Avenged sevenfold, Machine head, Pantera and Iron maiden, only we tried to give it more of our own twist and feels.
Kevin and Dyon give it more of a metal core sound as rhythmic section while Sonny and Martijn play more harmonies and melodies. Quint on the other hand has the high pitch screams and hard core like vocals which was a diversity we have never heard of before.
After a while of writing we figured out that we were going to write our songs about everything that we stand for in life. And that includes a lot of things said by politicians and what we think is wrong or right about what they are saying. That’s how we wrote the song Reign of Bullets. We decided that that should be our band name. In 2017 we released “ Reign E.P.” and that was the first step towards a new beginning.
In 2018 the band started with the first series of shows since a long time. With connecting a conversation with profane records. With this record label Reign of Bullets decided to work together and join forces.
In the summer of 2018 the band starts recording their promising first album “The course of destruction” the exact release date is not yet known.
