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.

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.“
