Not to be confused with the legendary british thrash band Re-Animator, or for that matter the american, russian or slovakian thrash bands of the same name.
Since the creation of the band in 2005 by Patrick Martin and Maxime Cormier, Reanimator dug an important place in the Quebec Metal scene. Offering an incendiary Thrash Metal dotted with old-school and new school element, With their first album "Thrashin' The Neighborhood" in 2007 the group established venomous stage appearances, which left no fan indifferent.
Touring Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, they finally came up with their next album called "Ignorance Is No Excuse" in 2009, however after nearly an hundred shows, the band split in 2011.
In 2013 they reformed with a new line-up and a new EP entitled "Great Balls".

Right from the very start 'Electric Circle Pit' presents itself as everything that was right about early Thrash Metal, fun, fast, great riffs, excellent drum playing and solid bass work, the only thing that slightly lets this down for me is the vocals, not much in the way of singing just fairly basic spoken/shouted style, this remains the same with each song, great music, just wanted a bit more from the singer.

Rating: 8/10
For fans of: Municipal Waste, Exodus, Anthrax, Acid Reign, Gama Bomb
