The Man Who Became Himself

     

(single)

     
         
         
     
             
Acid Reign are a thrash metal band from the UK formed in 1985 who released their debut album 'The Fear' in 1989. The bands second album 'Obnoxious' followed in 1990 before the band split up in 1991, with the band members moving on to other projects or joining other bands.    
             
2014 saw the release of 'The Apple Core Archives', a retrospective collection of every song they'd ever put out. In 2015, the band reformed, with singer Howard "H" Smith the only original member, releasing their comeback single 'Plan Of The Damned' and heading out on a UK tour with fellow British thrashers Xentrix.    
             
Over recent years there has been a resurgence of old school thrash metal, with big name bands from the eighties and nineties enjoying just as much, if not more, success than ever. Acid Reign have just released the single 'The Man Who Became Himself'.    
             
British thrash metal has never had the brutal nature of German thrash, it has always been more of the elegant American style. The new single is heavy with buzzing guitars and chugs along at a nice pace. Acid Reign are back, and they mean business.    
             
Overall, a welcome return to the thrash metal arena, the new single is a cracking reminder of how good Acid Reign are.
