REBEL PRIEST: To Release “R’lyeh Heavy” Album in November; “Electric Lady” Video Available

Added 08 October 2019, 11:04 PM

Canadian “Trash-N-Roll” band REBEL PRIEST has set November 22 as the release date for “R’lyeh Heavy”, their first release with SCRAPE Records.

Recorded in early 2019, “R’lyeh Heavy” showcases the band’s diverse brand of Heavy Rock, combining elements of Classic Metal (“The Summoning”, “Emperor”); Biker Rock (“Electric Lady”); 80s Sleaze (“Hangman”, “Dead End World”), and even a dash of Reggae (“Lighten The Load”). Lyrical highlights include “Elm Street”, the Speed Metal-tinged tribute to Freddy Krueger, and “Snake Eyes” - an ode to gambling which would make Lemmy proud.

A video for "Electric Lady", produced by R.D.Cane was released today.

Guitarist Benny Kemp comments: “It's finally time to announce what we've been spending the better part of a year putting our hearts and insanity into - this is the culmination of all the sounds we love with all the topics that move us. This project couldn't have happened without some of the most amazing people we have ever worked with, and we are forever grateful for the honesty and loyalty along the way!”

Pre-orders of the album are available today at in various formats, including CD (digipak), Limited Edition Vinyl (various color options) and merchandise bundles.

About Rebel Priest:

REBEL PRIEST have been a driving force on Canada’s West Coast rock/metal scene since forming in 2015, winning BEST ROCK BAND in 2017 and 2018 at The Whammys - an independent awards ceremony held in Vancouver, BC.

REBEL PRIEST have stormed the coastal concert stages, headlining their own shows and supporting international acts Udo Dirkschneider (ACCEPT), LORDI, DIAMOND HEAD, Hank Von Hell, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and THE LAZYS. They have become a regular fixture at Vancouver’s annual Bowie Ball, performing David Bowie covers for the benefit of The Canadian Cancer Society.

Combining NWOBHM with elements of Sleaze and Thrash, the REBEL PRIEST sound has been often described as Trash n' Roll.  Frontman Jayme Black comments: “We’ve been called Trash n Roll, or Trash Rock, but we just call ourselves Rock n Roll. A hideously deformed creature of superhuman Rock n Roll.“
