Reaction are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of progressive and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Kill The Parasite".
Chains, rain and thunder sounds start off the album along the music getting a lot heavier a few seconds alter and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after the intro the band starts adding in more of an old school thrash metal sound as well as adding in solos and leads that demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill.
Vocals are most aggressive and melodic at the same time and you can also hear a lot of melody in the guitar riffing throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a few power ballads and the heavier parts also start adding in more prog, power and heavy metal elements as the album progresses.
Reaction plays a style of thrash metal that is very old school and also mixes in elements of prog, power and heavy metal along with some modern elements to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover violent and real life themes.
In my opinion Reaction are a very great sounding mixture of progressive and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Behind Your Mask" "Criminal Pride" "Resistance" and "Kill the Parasite". 8 out of 10.
