product: Orion's Reign - Scores Of War (CD re-issue)
release date: 19.02.2021
format: CD (re-issue with 2 bonus tracks)
Re-Issue of Symphonic Metal band ORION’S REIGN’s second full-length studio album, "Scores of War", which originally was released in October 2018.
The original album, engineered, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Powerwolf, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, Amorphis etc.), in Sweden by Jens Bergen, Linus Corneliusson and Orion's Reign, includes 11 tracks of epic/symphonic metal and now has completely sold out on CD. Digitally, “Scores Of War” has been one of the most successful releases for the label so far; i.e. the hit single “Nostos” feat. Minniva which currently has more than 2 Million streams on Spotify.
“Scores Of War” offers a full symphonic experience profoundly influenced by epic movie scores, with a complete orchestra, bombastic rhythms, massive choirs and guest appearances such as Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), Mark Boals (Malmsteen) and others. The huge success of this release also brought ORION’S REIGN some slots for TV sync, i.e. for a Discovery Channel commercial and for a trailer on German TV station ZDF for the German national Supercup soccer final in 2020.
This new version of “Scores Of War” is limited to 1000 copies world-wide and additionally includes the two bonus tracks “Raining Blood” (SLAYER cover) and SKYRIM’s “Dragonborn” feat. WIND ROSE/ FAIRYTALE singer Francesco Cavalieri on the microphone. The release date was set to February 19th, 2021.
