Long-time death metal protagonist Marshall Beck fronts the explosive Reign of Vengeance, as they present this fiercely scornful ode to deception, false relations, and the fame machine at large.
Boldly metal for its vocal weight, volume and the accompanying distortion and pace of the guitars and bass, The Destruction of A Man: A.I. Love Machine comes in at a refreshingly standard industry length for this genre. Just three minutes and twenty-one seconds, the track adopts a structurally effective approach – beginning with the dark and anthemic hook, and progressing through longer-form explorations of humanity’s misdemeanors and self-destructive tendencies.
Openly penned as fearlessly controversial, the track showcases the peak of Reign Of Vengeance as modern metal troubadours and intentional songwriters with a passionate conviction at the helm. The latter half instrumental is particularly effective, a simple five-note pattern and the nostalgia of progressive metal elevated by escapism and the coinciding guitar solo before the pace multiplies for intensity and depth.
