Reactor where a band form Switzerland that later evolved into Sickening Gore and played a traditional form of death metal and this is a review of their 1991 ep "The Tribunal From Above" which will be re-issued in march by Vic Records.
Horror movie style keyboards start off the ep and there is also a brief use of clean playing before going into a heavier musical direction and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are mostly death metal growls.
A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with solos and leads displaying a great amount of talent and skill and screams are also used at times and the fast parts of the songs also utilize a great amount of raw aggression.
Reactor played a style of death metal that was very heavy and aggressive for the era it was released, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover violent, dark and anti religion themes.
In my opinion Reactor where a very great sounding death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deformed Personality" and "Religious Fight". 8 out of 10.
