RIG TIME! (USA) - Reborn - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2022/08/18/rig-time-reborn-ep/
Take a pinch of hardcore, a dab of doom, a bucket load of heavy metal and a sprinkling of nu-metal and mix it up in a heavy metal cauldron. After much stirring, you’ll get the sound of Rig Time! Who are back after five years to deliver their latest EP ‘Reborn’.
Straight out of the traps, ‘Reborn’ hits the ground running with a raw and abrasive sound which wastes no time in committing assault and battery on the listener. ‘Reborn’ rattles the speakers hard and whilst the crunching doom sound adds some low-end power, where this album really excels is that hardcore sound and this duo play the part exceptionally well where tracks such as ‘Manifesto’, ‘Backstab’ and ‘Unloved’ show fully what they are capable of with a wide range of accessible sounds that prove that Rig Time! Have what it takes to drag in listeners from a huge demographic especially with that underlying nu-metal sound which have all the enjoyability of Korn, Kublai Khan and Left Behind.
It might have been some time since Rig Time! Last delivered a release and ‘Reborn’ is a decent EP which kick starts their career like a big fuck off needle of adrenaline to the heart. If ‘Reborn’ is Rig Time! Dipping their toe in the water then this is a great way to build from. - Metal Digest

To be “Undeniable” is the objective and axiom that RIG TIME! irrefutably has avowed since their inception. Formed in Wisconsin, they quickly began touring relentlessly, performing coast to coast in 42 states and counting, executing a fierce live performance with precise and fearless transitions, always at astonishingly vulgar decibels. These two performers exhibit the mass of a full band aura as they implement a complete Vocal/Guitar/Bass/Drums/Synth performance without backing tracks, never suppressing their magnitude of raw energy and emotion through sincere lyrics and colossal stage presence.

Boldly infusing primal ferocity and solid reverence for groove, RIG TIME!’s self-described “Wisconsin Heavy” sound draws influence from hardcore, doom, nu metal and other models of extreme music. Their dedication to innovation, carving their profoundly honest and unparalleled contribution to the heavy music world, is imperative. The highly anticipated follow up to 2017’s full length “War” will be released in 2022 via State Of Mind Recordings.
Vocalist/Drummer Bryan W. Fleming heaves malicious power from behind the kit, scowling with every word retching from his diaphragm, while rendering strong in the pocket grooves and doom-laden analog synth soundscapes to reinforce the impact.
Guitarist/Bassist Rebecca Fleming enforces a cataclysmic onslaught of riffs through her unique live setup, devastating the listener with vast atmosphere, agile application and thoughtfully calculated compositions.
Outburn Magazine declared “...offers relentless rhythms with industrial precision as well as a smart beat changing sensibility” and “...guitar is mean, saturated and dogmatically singular.”, also noting “...for fans of earlier, angrier Godflesh ."
New Noise Magazine said, “Puncturing their blend of sludge and hardcore – with a tight embrace on powerviolence – the band kicks fast and dirgy tones, manifesting unbridled hatred.” and likened RIG TIME! to heavyweights Xibalba and Harm’s Way .
In their ascending conquest of performances for the masses, they have pledged a true respect for the arts by only performing at all ages events, to raise awareness about the importance of live music being obtainable to everyone and its vitality to the rejuvenation of the music scene. This allegiance to the “All Ages or Nothing” movement has stood unyielding since their debut, gaining proponents in solidarity.
