Signum Regis was formed in 2007 by bass player Ronnie König. The highly respected vocalist Göran Edman [ex. Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum] joined the band and they started to work on their debut album. The self-titled debut album was released during 2008 through Locomotive Records and received great reviews from around the world.
In 2010 Signum Regis signed with Inner Wound Recordings and released the impressive concept album “The Eyes Of Power”, still with Göran on vocals. The album was received really well, especially in Europe. With this album it was clear that Signum Regis had found their own sound, within the melodic/neoclassical metal scene.
When the guys started to write songs for the bands third album it was clear that the album needed more vocalist than one, since this was going to be a diverse and quite deep concept album. After careful consideration they decided to ask around some of their favorite vocalists if they would like to contribute to the album, and quite soon it was clear that some great vocalists would be on the album.
The third Signum Regis album is called “Exodus” and it's a historical concept album about the Israelites who were enslaved in ancient Egypt. Musically the album is a bit more straight melodic metal than the previous album, but the Signum Regis sound is definitely still there. Ronnie König mixed the album together with Filip Koluš [guitars] and the mastering was handled by Tommy Hansen [Helloween, Jorn, Circus Maximus] at Jailhouse Studios. The artwork was created by Felipe Machado Franco [Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, Iced Earth].
