REBEL INC. is an intense blend of metal, punk, hip-hop, and alternative rock music, formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. They are known for their raw, passionate, and explosive stage presence, powerful guitar rhythms, and thought provoking social and political lyrics. These characteristics put them in the realm of bands such as Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Korn, Rob Zombie, TOOL, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, and groups of this sort. Their sound also bridges the gaps to Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Metallica, Hollywood Undead, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, and Breaking Benjamin.
Their self-released debut EP has had every song played on terrestrial radio on more than 20 stations in the USA, as well as Canada, and Australia. It has rave reviews across the globe, from many radio DJ's, and magazines, including Germany and Italy. In fact, HELLO MUSIC says REBEL INC. is “On the cusp of greatness!” and Kendra Beltran from Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion says, “They would fair well with the commercial crowd at the Van’s Warped Tour, the metal heads at Ozzfest, and the eclectic crowd at Coachella.” Wisconsin radio DJ Gary Schmaltz calls the album “A national treasure.” These reviews seem to be confirmed as Pandora Radio has accepted their music to begin airing in the winter of 2011. The sophomore album featuring "No Song", "Killin' The Future", and more is in the works to be released in the spring of 2012.
