British metal titans, Anarchy Reigns, are expanding beyond their legions of followers, performing acts of minor insurrection worldwide to bring their music to an even larger audience. With typical disregard for convention, they are launching the campaign trail to their much anticipated debut album by GIVING AWAY the lead track, ‘Hypocrisy’.
Whether this is a stroke of genius or commercial suicide remains to be seen but you can’t argue that they’re leaving their huge fan-base shortchanged! Hypocrisy draws heavily (literally) from the British tradition of no-nonsense metal and hard rock but an emphasis on cramming as many riffs and soaring chorus’ into three and a bit minutes as possible, though also nodding to more European and American influences, with elements of both industrial and symphonic metal.
All of this would be all well and good but Anarchy Reign’s biggest hook is their frontman, Hitch, a force of nature and a tornado of quips, rants and pithy missives, his very clear agenda being to bring down any element of authority and power which has over-stepped the mark. Such is the case with Hypocrisy which, well, can speak for itself.
