ReytMetal E.P.

     
         
         
         
     
             
Psython are a thrash metal band from the UK formed in 2014 releasing their debut album '...Outputs' in 2016 and the follow up 'HATRED' in 2017. The bands third full length offering 'The Last Days Of The Good Times' was released in December 2018. A four song E.P. 'ReytMetal' was released in 2019.    
             
With this latest release, Psython have covered four songs by four iconic NWOBHM bands, four bands that pioneered and forged the NWOBHM sound during the early eighties, and, incredibly, nearly four decades later, all four bands are still performing and releasing new music. If you're expecting thrash metallized cover versions, then you're in for one helluva huge shock...    
             
...as the band have removed their jaw dropping aggression, intense ferocity and the howling and growling vocal style. The four cover versions Psython have recorded, are true to the originals, in terms of pace, sound and vocal style. Yes fellow ReytMetallers, this E.P. contains more clean singing than in all three of the bands full length releases to date. Psython have done a cracking job with their versions, taking me back to my teenage years in the early eighties, when I was listening to these four bands, and I can even remember each of the four songs that Psython have covered...    
             
...which is a fair achievement for the length of time I have listened to heavy metal music. So, I hear you all ask - what are the four covers? Well, there's Def Leppard 'No, No, No', Judas Priest 'Hot Rockin', Iron Maiden 'Back In The Village' and Saxon 'Fire In The Sky' - all songs released between 1981 and 1984, a glorious time for British heavy metal and the NWOBHM evolution, arguably the genre that inspired future sub genres, including the thrash metal genre that Psython so proudly rampage in. So, if you wanna hear another side to Psython, go get this E.P. and prepare yourself for a huge surprise.    
             
Overall, an incredible and surprising departure from their thrash metal roots, Psython offer four NWOBHM covers that dazzle and delight.
