In March Reanimator will be two years old. This is a big achievement for us and something I’m pretty proud of. It’s a real triumph over adversity, and better than that it’s a triumph over the deluge of mainstream soulless corporate crap and crippling apathy that has eroded the metal scene here so badly of late. It seems nowdays that people just aren’t interested in supporting grassroots anymore – they want everything handed to them on a platter, don’t want to move outside their comfort zone to see bands they haven’t read about in some glossy magazine or go to a venue they don’t frequent every week. It’s also a big middle finger to all the posers, pretenders and nay-sayers who thought that we couldn’t do this. These people underestimated the dedication and genuine passion that exists in our hearts, but our love for this doesn’t diminish like theirs when the wind of trend changes. The moral here is: Don’t fuck with true metal!
Conquest are releasing their brand new album early in March and from what I’ve heard so far it crushes the previous effort like a bug, so this is the first chance to hear some awesome new material from them. As for the other bands, we have local talent and long time Reanimator supporters Vincent Drive, proper metal might from Dark Forest and Man of The Hour have to be seen to be believed. As it’s our birthday we’re hoping to do a few other special things too, and although we might not be able to match last years epic clash between El Nekro and The Povemachine we should at least have some cake.

It's a bit dark, but to give a rough idea of what happened:
There was a massive build-up of tension on the Reanimator forums, as two mysterious rivals El Nekro (who had previously done the occasional stint as a guest DJ, striking fear - and confusion - into the hearts of the hapless R'n'B morons that came in by mistake) and El Povemachine started to verbally abuse and taunt each other in the weeks and months leading up to the Reanimator birthday event.
It was decided that the old grievances would be settled once and for all, in a battle to the death at Reanimator.
The infamous and deadly Nekro Claw was emblazoned across the sky, and with Eye Of The Tiger as a soundtrack, the two titans did battle. Much posturing and name-calling was followed by bitchslapping, and then they got down to business. El Povemachine lifted El Nekro from the floor, and brought him back down with his patented Tequila Slammer move.
Much grappling and sweaty manliness ensued, and then El Nekro slung El Povemachine over his shoulder, in a spinning move known as the deadly One-Armed Bandit. It was decided that these bitter rivals were just as strong (not to mention handsome) as each other, and a truce was called.
No one has heard from these mysterious gringos since that fateful day, but it is believed that El Nekro is now pursuing an acting career, and El Povemachine makes ends meet as a used car salesman and amateur gynecologist.
