HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS (distributed & marketed by REGAIN RECORDS) is proud to present INFIDEL REICH’s highly anticipated debut album, Reichenstein, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats (50xBlack, 50xRed).
INFIDEL REICH are something of a cross-continental supergroup, featuring ACHERON founder Vincent Crowley on vocals, early ASPHYX guitarist Tony Brookhuis, prolific drummer Bob Bagchus (ex-Asphyx, Soulburn, Grand Supreme Blood Court etc), and one McNasty on bass. The band released their first recording, the self-titled Infidel Reich EP, in 2017 through HELTER SKELTER, proving that old dogs don’t learn new tricks – because there’s no trickery involved in the INFIDEL REICH!
And prove that they do with their crushing and cantankerous debut album, Reichenstein: an utterly devastating 41 minutes of true “Working-Class Death Metal” victory! A true sum of their all-too-considerable parts, INFIDEL REICH sonically hearken back to the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, influenced as they are by the death metal, punk, and thrash of that era. Mighty names invoked include Carnivore, Venom, Motörhead, Celtic Frost, and S.O.D., but Reichenstein exudes its own unique charm – with the force of a steel-toed boot.
But, let it be known that INFIDEL REICH does not endorse any political, religious, or racial agendas. “We are the voices of reason and truth,” they confidently declare. More pointedly, this band of metal veterans is the enemy of all extremist groups who are trying to take away “The People's” freedom of speech, expression, and self-defense. Political correctness must be put to an end! Time has become to balance the scales, and that’s where Reichenstein confidently strides forward.
Indeed, INFIDEL REICH represent all people who dare to question authority and the status quo. Their aim is to use Reichenstein as an album to promote the freedom of speech and artistic expression, protesting against radical extremists, pride of individuality and the band’s disgust for media manipulation.
If their REICH’s membership wasn’t significant enough, the track “Hymn to Victory” features a cavalcade of supreme guest vocalists, including Mike Browning (Nocturnus AD), Kam Lee (Massacre), Dave Ingram (Benediction), Wannes Gubbels (Pentacle), Aad Kloosterwaard (Sinister), Stephan Gebedi (Thanatos), Scott Reigel (Brutality), Tomas Stench (Morbosidad), and Rai Wollers. Beware, for the gang’s all here, and Reichenstein draws near!
