Modern Death/Thrash Metal messiahs from Finland, Re-Armed, have existed since 2001 and The Era of Precarity is their third full-length studio album. If you have heard Re-Armed before, you should have a clue what to expect from them. If not, don't worry because I tell you now you should break some ice and get to know Re-Armed.

To me, these Finnish deathrashers seem to know how to pull from two strings just to please both the fans of old school Thrash Metal as well as more modern school of Death and Thrash. The guys' playing is as tight, technical and precise as it can get, paying attention to every single detail. Take Kreator's Phantom Antichrist album, cook it in the same cauldron together with some spices from Lamb of God, Arch Enemy and some symphonic elements from a band like Fleshgod Apocalypse and you have a pretty good idea what Re-Armed may sound like on The Era of Precarity. Somehow, the band has also avoided these few traps when things may get a bit dull and tedious, but due to their somewhat constant drive for changing their musical color within their face-punishing, most of the time fast-paced Death/Thrash assaults, they just never bore on this new album. Re-Armed are brave enough to break the existing Death/Thrash formula and they do it with style, without sounding too over-the top.      

There's a lot of potential and talent in this band to bring things to the next level. They have chosen the right track to make their way toward more favorable territories of success and fame for sure, but time will tell...
