SHEPHERDS REIGN speak to Primordial Radio presenter Pete Bailey as part of the Up-Vote Top 100 where Shepherds Reign came in at No. 16 with Nga Ao E Rua (feat. Swizl Jager), No. 11 with Le Manu and No. 5 with Aiga.

Hailing from the deep Polynesian stronghold of South Auckland, SHEPHERDS REIGN have stamped their powerful mark on the New Zealand and international music scene in a very short amount of time, creating a huge buzz from their live shows. Combining the traditional and ancient music of their forefathers with modern rock and metal influences including bands like Gojira, Avenged Sevenfold and Dream Theater, Shepherds Reign have found their own unique sound in a cluttered and overblown musical environment.

Unlike any heavy artist, Shepherds Reign bring a captivating and enthralling sound with the use of the Samoan language, instruments and culture, making it an integral part of their live show. The evocative and primal live show displays a fierce pride for their music that wins the audience every time with its blood pumping ritualistic beats, thick melodic textures and an undeniable power that hooks the audience into the band’s dark and heavy realm completely.
