Black Reign is one mean death metal album. The combination of old-school Entombed and Grave together with fresh modern influences from bands like Bloodbath is absolutely crushing. The sound production is great and flawless, the guitars have a lot of heaviness in them, the energetic rattling pedal work creates a great flow in the music and the thick growls add a lot of brutality. Black Reign is definitely one of best death metal albums of 2009. Extremely recommended to people who like brutal Swedish death metal. Check out ''Dead Forever'', ''Thirst For Blood'' or ''Raw''.
