The story of ReinXeed takes place in a town called Boden in the north of Sweden. ReinXeed is Tommy ReinXeed’s musical creation and band vision.
The band was formed in 2002 and worked very hard to develop their own style of melodic power metal and image to create what ReinXeed call ADVENTURE METAL. Big bombastic music with big lyrics, stories and legends that has been told for centuries with a heavenly hope.
In late 2007 Christian Liljegren former singer and founder of NARNIA also owner of LILJEGREN RECORDS/DOOLITTLE GROUP got a demo from Tommy ReinXeed. He was so impressed of what he heard and signed ReinXeed direct to his label.
Highly praised label KING RECORDS in Japan licensed ReinXeed and the release of their debut album THE LIGHT in 2008 and have since then reached good success with ReinXeed’s releases THE LIGHT, HIGHER & MAJESTIC and are excited to release their new album 1912. The 1912 album tells the story about the mighty ship Titanic and ReinXeed have also recorded two videos “We Must Go Faster” and “Terror Has Begun” to give a taste of the album.
The musical inspiration for ReinXeed comes from Gary Moore Angra, Stratovarius ,Robby Valentine ,Symphony X and Helloween, & Keeper Of The Seven Keys 1 & 2 era.
ReinXeed have worked hard to develop the songs and the production on 1912. This album is the biggest and most powerful production so far. The previous album MAJESTIC album scored 88 points in BURRN! MAGAZINE when it was released in JAPAN and charted top positions in the metal charts in JAPAN and 1912 seems to go the same way!
In 2008 Tommy ReinXeed also formed a new band called Golden Resurrection together with vocalist Christian Liljegren (Divinefire & Narnia). Their debut album Glory To My King was released in late 2010. Great response in metal media all over the world and the album have already sold thousands of copies in Asia, USA & Europe.
Their 2nd album Light Of The World will be released in October and the band got alot of attention for their charity single Pray For Japan to show their hearts for all their friends thay have in Japan. Golden Resurrection videos on YouTube are watched by thousands and their fanbase is growing fast.
Tommy ReinXeed’s favourite guitar player left us in early 2011. Gary Moore (R.I.P) did a great version of Thunder Rising and the video is available on Youtube. All these recordings of his favourite artists has developed Tommy’s skills as vocalist & musician. In Tommy’s mind nothing is impossible and all is possible if you lay down your heart and time in it.
The biggest rock magazine in Scandinavia – Sweden Rock Magazine covered Tommy in the January issue 2011 with a full story about Tommy ReinXeed – Sweden’s new born vocal & guitar hero. The focus were on the success with Golden Resurrection & ReinXeed and the forthcoming albums 1912 & Swedish Hitz Goes Metal.
Along side 1912 album, Tommy ReinXeed has worked out an album to show the world new and great versions originally written by ABBA, ROXETTE & ACE OF BASE and the title is SWEDISH HITZ GOES METAL!
