Introducing our new line up. Tour dates to be announced soon
REOG consists of 4 individuals from different locations of the planet with unique musical backgrounds, converging in Los Angeles with the same vision and belief. Together, their colorful histories, commitment to their crafts, and spirit of camaraderie make up REOG with a sound that will certainly energize minds and ears worldwide. Having Sammy T at the helm, they set out to be the modern day "classic heavy metal", combining memorable melodies on both vocal and guitar (together with formally trained classical guitarist Richard Dawson) while Mad Shaad and Ralphy Boy provide an explosive rhythm relentlessly propelling the music forward. Influences from the bands' heroes include: X-Japan, Guns and Roses, KISS, Metallica, Arch Enemy, Luna Sea, Megadeth, Ozzy, Thin Lizzy, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, Manowar and many more. Taking the name from an Indonesian (where Sammy originally came from) traditional dance that tells a set of stories about moral struggles, REOG's lyrics portray the mechanism of human minds that can never adhere to an absolute standard of good and evil, right and wrong, or black and white. The same mechanism also influences the synergy of REOG in their songwriting process, creating a distinct personality of music. REOG's songs are very unique in having generous amounts of friendly melodies fans worldwide can sing along to. This will impact listeners in a way even pop fans would instantly be able to get REOG's catchiness as well as heavy metal fans. Since it originated 10 years ago on the Los Angeles scene, REOG has built its foundation up from the home of American heavy metal. With their last album called "Final Tears Falling" -available at all mp3 outlets- REOG has been able to reach a wider spectrum of audience and are ready to rock your world.
