Heavy metallers HIGH REEPER share wild new video ‘Bring The Dead’; album coming March 22nd Heavy Psych Sounds Records!

East Coast’s Sabbath-worshipping metallers HIGH REEPER have unleashed the video for ‘Bring The Dead’ via Kerrang! Their sophomore album ‘Higher Reeper’ comes out March 22nd on HPS Records. Headbang or die! 

And these guys aren’t fucking around, imagine a sound and smell of leather, weed and death with the hint of Campari and cocaine to color all eight tracks we get to hear on HIGH REEPER‘s sophomore record.

For the Bring The Dead video, we just wanted it to be natural, just a spin on our live set with some cool lighting. Of course we asked our friend Dan Dome to do it,” says vocalist Zach Thomas. “He always seems to capture the mood of a song. There’s an apocalyptic theme of chaos that runs through the album and, lyrically, I think this song was a turning point in the way the album is set up. It’s kind of the last of the chaos that sets up the second side of the album which is more of the aftermath. There were a lot of personal obstacles that we were going through when we were writing this album, in particular the death of Shane’s close friend who the album is dedicated to, so things got pretty fucking crazy and the end result reflects that.”

With the addition of their new drummer Justin Di Pinto, the band has managed to focus their sound and expand it at the same time. The record is darker and heavier compared to their first offering, with guitars that will crush your mind and lyrics that paint a picture of the world nearing its end. While the sound of ‘Higher Reeper’ is more focused, at the same time it manages to be more complex and varied. With tracks ranging from ones as heavy as the album opener, “Eternal Leviathan”, to even an ethereal ballad “Apocalypse Hymn”, this LP will take you all the way to hell and leave you there to rot. Once again produced, engineered and mixed by bass player Shane Trimble at TTR studios and Delwood Sound and mastered by Mike Tarsia. Solomacello created the incredible cover that captures the mood of the record while giving a nod to classic heavy metal.
