SE BON KI RA’s new album “In The Wake Of Change”

We’ve got a story to tell. A story about living. Tough times, happy times, real raw emotion, truth, lies, deception and conviction. What did you expect from life? Are you getting it? Or is the world leaving you behind, IN THE WAKE OF CHANGE? Get up. Fight back. Live with honor. Be the one who made it happen. If you make a mistake, make it right. If someone is hurting, help them. The only constant is change. If you can’t control it, accept it. Good is rare.

This is a metal album.

But these are not songs about death and dying. These are songs about living. Songs that express the struggle, pain, joy, bliss, fear, confusion, love and the fragility that makes us human.

What people are saying about SE BON KI RA

“In The Wake Of Change is a punishing, but friendly, colorful yet brutal, 15 track giant, ready to keep you entertained for hours and hours. There are so many good things about this collection of thrash/groove metal songs it’s hard to know where to begin.”

“The band knows how to blend all the elements well and sound huge on an international level with brilliance shining throughout…  SE BON KIRA are on track to be a premier heavy metal act not only in Australia, but abroad.”

15 track album of brutality and brilliance rolled ambitiously into one passionate affair of aggressive overtures, laced with precision and tenacity throughout.

‘In The Wake Of Change’ proves once again that Adelaide metal stands shoulder to shoulder with anything produced anywhere else in the world.

Street Press Adelaide
dB Magazine Review

“SE BON KI RA play an easily accessible style of heavy metal, simply described with a comparison with US band Lamb of God. Hard guitars and tough guy vocals laid over an infectious groove and downbeat”

Faster Louder

“SE BON KI RA are one of the more outstanding artists in South Australia at the moment… An amazing, intense almost brutal live show is one of the better ones I’ve seen in a long time.”
