Reactory are a band from Germany that plays a very heavy and aggressive form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Heavy" which will be released in July as a joint effort between FDA Rekotz and Soulfood Music.
A very heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and after awhile the music starts going into more of a thrash metal direction and when vocals are added into the recording they are aggressive screams.
Blast beats can be heard in some of the faster sections of the songs along with a great amount of back up gang shouts and the music almost brings in a death metal heaviness at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the music is rooted in the 80's while also taking advantage of modern technology and the whole album remains true to a very heavy musical style and they close the album with a cover of Motorhead's "Eat The Rich".
Reactory plays a style of Teutonic thrash metal that they also update for the modern era while still having an 80's style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mythology and nuclear energy themes.
In my opinion Reactory are a very great sounding Teutonic thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "To Thanatos" "Shrines Of The Forgotten Gods" and "Let Me Rage Before I Die". 8 out of 10.
