Biography

Reborn In Fire is a New American Metal band that came into fruition when Vocalist/Guitarist Gary Reed put an ad out on a website looking for local musicians in the Tulsa area and Drummer Nick Taylor responded. The first incarnation of the band first formed in late 2003 and released a self produced EP the following months. However, one year later a new line-up was in the works. Bassist Aaron Smith responded to a similar online ad and soon became the third mainstay member of the line-up.
Reborn In Fire would head back into the studio at Armstrong Recording in 2006 to cut a new demo with renowned guitarist Stephen Egerton from The Descendants as the engineer. The three-song demo would later open the doors to radio stations such as Tulsa's 97.5 KMOD and Z104.5 The Edge for airplay. The band also performed a couple of times live on 97.5 KMODs Morning Show with Phil and Brent.
The band went on hiatus for a few years after Gary Reed suffered the loss of a marriage and the death of two relatives in the same year. During this time Nick, Aaron, and Gary all managed to keep in contact and talked about the possibility of getting the band back together and making a full-length album.
In late 2010, Gary Reed and Nick Taylor went back to Armstrong Recording with Stephen Egerton as engineer to start laying down Nicks drum tracks. Throughout 2011, Gary would come in to record the guitars plus the vocals, and Aaron Smith also came in to record the bass that would become the self-produced/self-titled album Reborn In Fire.
The album brings together the fundamentals of traditional thrash metal and elements of metalcore which creates a type of new American metal that is more approachable to a wider audience than in recent years with the heavy genre.
With the album being so close to completion, the band was still missing a key member. Gary got in touch with old friend Cale Ashlock that once played guitar in a band called One Night Scam. Cales talent on the guitar and his attitude were a perfect balance between the other members of the band. He immediately joined rounding out and strengthening the Reborn In Fire line-up.
Reborn In Fire is a new American metal band that focuses their musical ability and artistic guile to write excellent songs that have meaning, give live performances that are memorable, and to have as many people listen to it as possible. The album Reborn In Fire that released on 11/11/11 is a testament to these ideals and will continue to forge a recognizable brand in the music industry.

Lyrics

Awakened

Written By: Gary Reed

You came to open up our world, and change the views we see today
And I am thankful for your work, sent above to show the way
Bringing forth the everlasting life

Living for you
My life will never be the same
Living for you
My life will never be the same
My life will never be the same
As I hold you
You open up my world of faith

When times are hard I come to you, listening to what you say
Give me the strength to carry on, and live the life that I should lead
Bringing forth the everlasting life

Living for you
My life will never be the same
Living for you
My life will never be the same
My life will never be the same
As I hold you
You open up my world of faith

When it all ends I’ll see the light, carried through just like a dream
The touch you gave awakened me; it opened up my eyes to see
Bringing forth the everlasting life

Living for you

Napalm

Written By: Gary Reed, Nick Taylor

Crack of dawn, all is gone, what is left is what is done
Bodies burning, stomach’s turning, moving out I grab my gun

They had to die
The sons of men took from them
But I don’t cry
It comes from this war that we live in

Body’s aching, bones are breaking, shoot them all it’s for the taking
On the brink, no time to think, aim is tight but knees are weak

They had to die
The sons of men took from them
But I don’t cry
It comes from this war that we live in

They had to die
The sons of men took from them
But I don’t cry
It comes from this war that we live in
This war that we live in
Our world that we live in

Premonition In Constellation

Written By: Gary Reed, Nick Taylor, Aaron Smith

Lie down, take it slow my friend, it’s the end
I know life’s been hard my friend, take it in
I feel your terror; the fear that shakes within, it’s okay
I feel your sorrow, what might have should have been, that’s okay
No need to fight it, the outcome is the same, drift away
The line is blurring, what is real or dream

I feel your anger, the life held by the seeds, stripped away
Darkness consumes, it’s helpless to resist, come what may
It’s getting colder, as your memory fades, all fall prey
I’ve come to take you, far from this hellish place

Death release me
Set me free
I can’t go on existing
Death release me
Set me free
I can’t go on existing

Death release me
Set me free
I can’t go on existing
Death release me
Set me free
I can’t go on existing

I think I, I see a light
I feel like, like I’m alive

Time Will Tell

Written By: Gary Reed, Nick Taylor, Aaron Smith

There’s a secret you live with
But you don’t ask why
Did it ever occur to you
That it might be a lie

I started believing
An invisible man
Yet no secret revealed to me
An all-powerful plan

Time will tell
We will go
Leave the past behind unknown

There’s no way I could prove it
No one really knows
But when life slips through your fingers
You know you won’t wanna go
No

I started accepting
The invisible man
He has all the answers of life
But none that you’ll ever have

Time will tell
We will go
Leave the past behind unknown
Time will tell
He won’t show
Left you all to die alone
And slowly fades to bliss
The sinking black abyss

Time will tell
We will go
Leave the past behind unknown
Time will tell
He won’t show
Left you all to die alone
And slowly fades to bliss
The sinking black abyss

Pariah

Written By: Gary Reed, Nick Taylor

We saw the prophet signs, but did not care
We fight now for our lives, death everywhere
Sacrificed the ones we love, just to be alive
Fire rains down from the sky, end of all mankind

We’ll never be free
Suffer through misery
And we’ll never be
Saved like the rest
We’ll never be free
Suffer through misery
And we’ll never be
Saved like the rest

To kill or be killed, this is how we dwell
Death is just a release now, from this eternal hell
I’ve lasted for this long I can’t be taken down
I cry out for my God, but he is not around

We’ll never be free
Suffer through misery
And we’ll never be
Saved like the rest
We’ll never be free
Suffer through misery
And we’ll never be
Saved like the rest
We’ll never be free
Suffer through misery
And we’ll never be
Saved like the rest
