Shepherds Reign is made up of 4 brothers, Pacific, Māori and Asian, who are united in their passion for writing and performing hard hitting music that expresses where they are from and shares their life experiences.
Itʻs intelligent metal, with melodic thick textures and big melodies, delivered with attitude and conviction.
Their authentic sound comes from the fact that the members Filivaa James (Vocals, keys), Oliver Leupolu (guitar, production), Shaymen Rameka (drums) and Gideon Voon (guitars) were raised in South Auckland of Aotearoa New Zealand, a Pacific hotspot and from here, they dream of world domination.
Shepherds Reign is best experienced live, where each band member gives it their all and aims to smack the audience in the face with their performance. The live show is a culmination of years of playing together and developing their natural chemistry and here is where they are most powerful.
Their debut self titled album promises no less, capturing the bands raw energy and a new type of metal experience, that is, one that carries ancient ancestry within the heavy deep metal grooves. The dynamic 4 piece are influenced by classic rock and modern progressive metal with influences such as Avenged Sevenfold, Gojira, and Dream Theater.
Regularly performing on the metal and rock circuit and with extensive interest in their debut album from media and the metal/rock community, their debut album from Shepherds Reign is here.
