"The Regal Tribe" is the follow up to "Ordained" (2014) which saw USURPRESS leave their deathcrust path for more uncharted territories. During the composing of the new album, the band was plagued by mental disorders/depressions and life threatening illnesses in the member's immediate families, most notably vocalist/lyricist Stefan Pettersson's battle with his bone marrow cancer. Therefore "The Regal Tribe" is a heavier and darker, yet more varied, complex and thoughtful effort than their previous albums. This concept album is a tragic story about life versus death, about vanity and the relentless passing of time and is by far USUPRESS' most ambitious output to date.
