May 08 – Review by Stefan – REACTORY – COLLAPSE TO COME (Iron Shield Records / Soulfood)

If you’re ready to let an unusually hard portion of unadulterated Thrash Metal flow through your veins, I’ve got for you the latest album from the German band Reactory, titled “Collapse To Come”. Hailing from Berlin, Reactory was formed in 2010 by a bunch of musicians those who have played in different bands delivering genres ranging from Doom Metal to Hardcore and from Punk to Surf over Rock and Roll. A mishmash of music styles but after merging individual strengths and musical skills, I come to the conclusion that Reactory has achieved a solid end result.

This is my first contact with the band and I’m not sure what their two previous full length albums and debut EP “Killed By Thrash” (2013) sounded like. So I can only pass judgment on their third, new effort “Collapse To Come”, released as CD and LP on March 27th. 2020 through Iron Shield Records. It might be interested to report that Reactory supported Thrashcore legends DRI on their two last European Tours on the German shows, they also shared the stage with German Thrash Metal icons Exumer for at least 14 shows ! Reactory played on both European and Brazilian soil for so many times… more than 200 shows they’ve played so far ! READ MORE…
