Signum Regis was founded by the bass player and songwriter Ronnie König in 2007. The idea to form this band came, when he realized that he is writing various kinds of songs, which often do not fit under the flag of his original heavy metal band called Vindex. Signum Regis focuses on melodic metal with neoclassical elements and shredding guitars. The sound is an interesting combination of Ronnie’s style of composing and his main influences for this kind of music: Yngwie Malmsteen, Rainbow, Impellitteri and Helloween.
For the recording Ronnie invited guitarists Ado Kaláber and Filip Koluš, keyboard player Ján Tupý and drummer Ludek Struhar. The interesting thing about Ludek is that besides being a great drummer he also is a singer. The position of the main vocalist had still been open at this point. However, it didn’t take too long to come to the decision to invite Göran Edman, a well-known vocalist with a magical voice from Sweden. There is no need to introduce him to the metal fans, because his performance on Yngwie Malmsteen and John Norum albums already became legendary. The recording started with demos, which were later sent to Göran. Fortunately, he was impressed by the sound of the first three songs, which were deliverd to him (“Follow The Light”, “Neverland” and “Bright Days Of Glory”) and agreed to step in.
The cooperation was tight and moved forward. The first completely recorded songs including “All Over The World”, “Neverland”, “For Ever And A Day”, “Bright Days Of Glory” and “Mountain Haze” were sent to various labels. There were positive responses coming, so from this point, it was sure that the future of this band was open for new goals. Japanese label Avalon/Marquee offered Signum Regis a contract right after hearing the first half of the album in a rough mixed sound. The recording continued and in April 2008, everything was ready for mastering. The recording was done in 2 studios: Ronnie’s private “Vindex studio” in Senec and “Göran Edman studio“ in Sweden. All songs were mixed by Ronnie and mastered by famous producer Tommy Hansen in Jailhouse Studio, Denmark.
In May 2008, after the whole production process was done, it was time to find a label for the European region. The decision was to start the cooperation with Locomotive Records. The self-titled album Signum Regis will be released on 23rd July in Japan, 26th August in USA, 29th August in Europe.
In May 2015, the band has released an EP, "Through The Storm", via Ulterium Records and has started touring in Europe in order to promote the record. The band is actually working a new full length album, that will be released next year via Ulterium Records.
