ReinXeed

ReinXeed is a symphonic/power metal band from Boden, Sweden. They were formed in 2004 by vocalist Tommy Johansson. They are influenced by soundtrack movies such as Lord of the Rings and bands like Helloween and Rhapsody of Fire.

In 2007 Christian Liljegren, former singer / founder of Narnia and owner of Liljegren Records / Doolittle Group, recieved a demo from Tommy. He instantly heard the talent and signed ReinXeed to the label.

In 2008, ReinXeed released their first studio album The Light on Rivel Records. This helped ReinXeed land an appearance in Japan where they gained fans. The Light can best be described as melodic power metal with the occasional symphonic tendency and some more progressive based pieces

In 2009 the second album Higher was released. It is even more symphonic with the rhythm guitar sometimes lost in the mix, as some reviewers criticized. It is beautiful and lacks a little in power.
Majestic was been released worldwide in 2010. It’s the third album of this power metal band.
1912 is their fourth album, released 2011. It is a concept album about the Titanic and its sinking. The Japanese edition includes three bonus track: “ReinXeed Alliance”, “Aces High” (an Iron Maiden cover) and “Pray for Japan”, a song done to support Japan in the aftermath of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Welcome to the Theater , ReinXeed’s latest album was released in May 2012. The entire album is inspired by famous movies, both music and lyrics.

They played ProgPower Oslo Festival this year and are going to play ProgPower USA and Rock Out Wild Festival in Sweden in 2013.
