    ( reggae ) BeTaRaz Entertainment Lionize has set out to create a distinct sound in Reggae by not shying away from their love of classic rock. In January 2008, the band made a pilgrimage to Kingston, Jamaica with producer and long time friend Sidney Mills of Steel Pulse to record their first full length record (due to be released this winter) at Harry J Studios. Joining the band on their musical journey to the motherland of Reggae was guitar player Tim Sult of Clutch. "It's impressive. I'm feeling strength being projected... This is strong art all the way from the beginning through the end." - DJ Pat McKay of Reggae Rhythms (Sirius Satellite Radio) on their 2006 release, "Mummies Wrapped in Money EP" ***** Original reggae band coming from the heart of Babylon. Here to spread the message of love, peace, and consciousness to the masses. Combining roots and dub, the THE I-TERNALS are reverting back to the classic sound of reggae. THE I-TERNALS produce a unique sound, with ghostly lyrics, hard hitting drums, heavy basslines, and moving melodies in the minor key. Come join the revolution that is Reggae music, help us deliver the One true message- Equal human rights and justice for all. Our sound is the past, present, and the future, hence the name...
