Colorado extreme metallers ENEMY REIGN were recently added to the illustrious Neurotic Deathfest 2010 lineup! The Neurotic Deathfest is Europe’s premier indoor death metal event. Originally known as the Rotterdam Deathfest (2004 and 2005), the organizers changed the name to Neurotic Deathfest in 2006 when they decided to move the festivities to a new venue and city.

ENEMY REIGN features former Skinless vocalist Sherwood Webber alongside drummer Andon Guenther (Deadspeak; creative director, programmer, and co-creator of Sick Drummer Magazine), guitarist Nick Guenther (Becoming The Enemy, Masakado) and bassist Cassie Begay (Throat Culture/Throcult, Deadspeak). The band’s self-financed EP, Means To A Dead End — recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Martriden, Cobalt et al) — continues to reap considerable praise from the media over a year after its release. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their debut full-length (label TBA).
“…death metal, the kind with big muscles and bigger t-shirts with offensive phrases in huge letters on the back…” — Decibel
“An admissibly ferocious, hate-filled and avenging band who have confidently taken control of their own fate… This is a hard-hitting metal release, which more than deserves to be checked out on its own accord.” — Terrorizer
“These are the dudes that Iâ€™m gonna spin in the car when Iâ€™m late and on my MP3 thingy-ma-jig when Iâ€™ve had a gutful of the world and the old ladies and little children in my way need to be scattered in an efficient and final mannerâ€¦The perfect record to feed your loathing of the world and itâ€™s worst facets.” — Mass Movement
“The tracks on this EP don’t play, they detonate…the vocals cast a shockwave and the music leaves a crater. From the furious opening of ‘Command’ to the brutal breakdowns of ‘Abuse,’ Means To A Dead End is music to riot to.” — Unholy Gate
“…a debut EP to rival most full lengths.” — Mouth For War
