Alt-rock metal band Reign of Z debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its single ‘Reflections’ on Tuesday via PureGrainAudio.com and YouTube. The single is taken from the band’s debut EP Mirrors and Memoirs. The record, produced by Steve Sopchak (Ice Nine Kills), is scheduled for April 19.
Vocalist Zosia West talked about the EP in a recent interview.
“This is the most exposed songwriting I’ve written up to this point,” West said. “Each song was written at different ages in my life and reformatted for listeners. Experiences from 8, 16, 24 and present.”
West added, “Our experiences have allowed us to create a world where we find solace and comfort, and allows us to be who we are and whoever listens and follows.”
The video for the new song presents vocalist Zosia West being restrained on a table by her band mates — Steven Lords (guitar), Zach Cunningham (guitar) and Stephen Berg (bass) — as she struggles to be released. Meanwhile, her band mates work to hold her back so that an unidentified fluid can be pumped into her. That footage is crossed with footage of the band performing its new single against a darkly lit backdrop.
Musically, the song’s arrangement lends itself to thoughts of Halestorm, Amy Lee and even Otep to a slightly lesser degree. Lyrically, the song comes across as a commentary about an emotional battle that West at one time fought with herself.
Reign of Z is scheduled to perform live Apr. 27 in Millvale, PA in support of Mirrors and Memoirs. More information on the show is available along with information on the band’s new video, EP and more at:
