Hello, Happy New Year, How are you? We are fine! Hope you are as well! Could you introduce yourselves to the readers? We are the Swedish melodic metal band REXORIA , which consists of vocalist Frida Ohlin, guitarist/bassist Jonas Gustavsson, guitarist Cristofer Svensson and drummer Martin Gustavsson. The band have existed since 2016, and we have released two albums and one EP before our upcoming album "Imperial Dawn".

An album you can put on at parties, at the gym or when you just want to get some new metal energy!

The repetitive cries of 'Who's the thief' over crisp and abrasive guitar lines kick things into touch before the relentless 'Raise Your Voice' follows suit with its headbanging blast beats and razor-sharp riffs. 'Social Rampage' is the second longest track on the EP at 2:11 but the old-school thrash elements remain the same. Hooks and Bones are able to channel their anger with
