RETCHED – ‘The Overlord Messiah’

RETCHED was born in 1988, from a band originally named AVATAR – though its founder, David DerMinasian felt strongly that the name wasn’t metal enough. The album was initially recorded in their hometown of Fresno, California, at Maximus Media Inc. The band played gigs locally to them, in California and in LA and Hollywood, to a highly supportive fan base. Unfortunately, they disbanded towards the end of that year, following problems with unsupportive management, leading to promotional neglect, placing them in an impossible position. Fast forward almost 30 years later and David DerMinasian has self released the album, through Bandcamp.com. It’s since received 3 record contract offers, out of which, Alone records, in Thessaloniki, Greece, was chosen. They now have a massive online following.

From this story comes RETCHED (pronounced ‘recht’) – a 2-piece thrash metal band, consisting of David DerMinasian (lead rhythm guitar and bass guitar) and David Ezelle (vocals, drums and percussion), with a strong online presence. Their debut album is expected in November 2018.

Black Leather And Me – Snazzy memorable intro, simulating the sound of a stereo needle on vinyl, quickly followed by a classic riff, maintaining impressive momentum, throughout. Soon accompanied by equally old school metal vocals and throwing in some very brief screechy stuff, with some backing harmonies, here and there; the lyrics say it all. It’s just a typical old school thrash track.

Insane – Drumming attack intro, more of a power scream emphasis to the lyrics and tons of riffage. Standard thrash fayre, without much deviation from type or tonal variation, but it’s a fair listen.

Lost In The Night – Here, the drums increase their power and the lyrical volume matches the rise in sound. Generally, a more powerful energy and the screams are well placed, adding greater life and strength – enhancing its enjoyability. Closing on a thunder and rainstorm sound effect, the energy’s lifting here.

Metal Knights – Opening with a military leader commanding a firing squad to take aim and rapidly followed up by more traditional metal stuff, with even more poignant melody. Just too short and ends just as you’re getting into the flow. Stand-out fixture has to be the riffage, though, being so acute, as to be almost physically palpable. Spine chilling, in its own way.

The Pharaoh’s Curse – Introing with a powerful windstorm, emulating that of Dio’s ‘Holy Diver’. Again, it continues in a similar vein to before, with more thrashy sounds and a determined vocal edge. Growing increasingly Egyptian, in sound, in deference to its title, the passion’s audible, as with the enthusiasm.

The Overlord Messiah – Once more, opening with the increasingly familiar storm effect, but this time, varying it with an acoustic section and a noticeably sudden, dramatic surge in power, within the screams and overall vocal refrain. It’s very welcome; adding something highly pleasurable to the song’s atmosphere. Ending with another acoustic guitar section, much like that of Ozzy’s ‘Killer Of Giants’. Nice touch and they’ve definitely nailed the title track’s memorability stakes.

Overall – A general sense of easy listenability and though it may lose some of its potential edginess, in its lack of versatility and variability, it compensates in vocal energy, drive and instrumental capability and flair. This may not be what you’d call a ‘spectacular’ album, but the title track alone is worth buying it for and for all we thrash metal enthusiasts, it’s old school loyalty and classic essence makes it a great, comfortable addition to our collections.

7/10 *******

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi and thanks for the compliment. I’m confused about your comment re: stuff being gone for good and fresh new author! I’m still the author and have always been the author of this blog and I haven’t removed anything from here, so I’m not sure what you mean exactly. Also, as you’ll see, this blog is about music and not education. (Though you could argue it is educational in a sense). Not sure what your concerns are, though I suspect that last bit is meant for someone else who’s been commenting on here, asking for advice about setting up blogs etc. Re: your reference to ‘dominance’, I’m not even going to go there lol!) Let’s just keep the discussion focus on music and the reviews. Thank you).

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi there, okay, yes I do and all I do is to sift through them all and decide which I want to keep/approve/reply to, etc and which need to be deleted. Recently, I have found that I’m making heavier use of the delete option. Luckily, however, I find there are more positive responses than negative/inappropriate ones. Even so, the amount of inappropriate spam is accumulating lately, so yes I just delete. Haven’t found any other option yet, TBH, but if I do, I will let you know. Having said that, one handy policy I’ve recently implemented is to check any links which are added to comments, prior to approving them and I’ve found that most of those comments end up being deleted, as most of the links added are inappropriate. So really, I’d just say, if you’re unsure, then double check everything first and if you’re still unsure, then simply delete. Other than that, I’d advise adding a comment to your about section, clarifying the contents you want and don’t want on there. My policy is to only approve feedback concerning the reviews and the music directly. Anything irrelevant to the blog and its purpose just gets deleted. As I say, if I find some other way of filtering things out, I’ll let you know. Hope this helps, to some extent. Thanks for the question.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    • jennytate Says:

      Okay, thanks, but I actually use Internet Explorer on here, which is absolutely fine for me, so it may just be either temporary glitches with the system/browser itself or an issue with your own computer system perhaps. Not sure, but works fine for me, so you may want to try it at different times of day and/or night, perhaps experiment with different browsers etc, see if you can find any patterns, as sometimes it can be down to the net simply being jammed with people at certain times of day/night. Not sure what else to suggest, but hope that helps a bit. Anyway, thanks.

      Hi, I’m pretty sure you’ve posted before about this and I have responded previously at least once. As I’ve said before, I myself use Internet Explorer, which is absolutely fine for me and causes no issues at all, so I can only assume it’s a problem at your end. Either that or you’re just experiencing temporary glitches. You may want to check out your systems and figure out if there’s an issue going on, which is preventing you from being able to access stuff properly. Otherwise, thanks for the positive feedback.

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, okay, thanks for letting me know. There are a few here and there which don’t have art attached, so are you sure it’s not just those ones? I’ve had occasional props myself with uploading some of the art to Facebook, for some reason, despite it showing fine on the actual blog site. I think it could be just temporary glitches, but it’s good to know if others are experiencing problems too. I’ll keep an eye out, thanks again.

    I know this site offers quality based articles or reviews and additional information, is there any other website which provides these data in quality?

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, I’m not sure, is the honest answer. I only really focus on my own blog. So couldn’t really tell you much about the contents of others. Though if you want to try out a couple of sites with decent rock/metal info generally, there are a couple I’d recommend. The first is http://www.allheavy-metal.net, which is run by a friend of mine called Craig Burton. That’s more of a networking site, to linkup bands with promoters/reviewers/interested parties/fans and unofficially promotes some decent new releases. The second is http://www.metal-archives.com/ which has listings of huge numbers of bands and their releases and which my promoter friend Vlad is associated with. Other than that, you may want to take a look at some of the online radio stations, which play rock and metal. A lot of them are likely to have some good, up-to-date info on their sites. Hope that helps.

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • jennytate Says:

      Apologies for that. It must’ve done, as I generally approve most comments (unless they contain unsolicited links, which prove to be irrelevant in some way). So anyway, thank you for that and good luck with your own blog. Points for newbies would depend on the subject you’re blogging on, but if it’s music and particularly rock/metal, there are probably several points I could pass on to you. The main one, though, is the simplest, which is just to keep on doing it, as frequently as possible. Practice literally makes perfect. Read lots aswell. I tend to read the review sections in publications such as classic Rock and Metal Hammer and try to keep my own writing up to speed, whilst maintaining the personal touch. Also, if it’s reviews you’re writing, then I’d say, ensure that you’re not swayed by anyone else’s reviews and particularly, their star ratings. Research the music for yourself and don’t let other reviewers opinions influence your own. Keep your blog contents focused on whatever your subject area is and watch out for spammers. If in doubt, leave it out. That applies to other people’s comments and links as well as your own review material. Go with your creative flow. Do whatever helps you get in the zone and work at your best times of day. Widen your net as much as possible, in terms of gaining material for your blog/reviews and go with your instincts in terms of who’s best to work with. Also go with recommendations from trusted sources. Live and learn). That’s really the main point for all of us, isn’t it?) Anyway, I hope that helps.

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi and thanks for the heads up on that. Yeah my web hosting is fine, though. I don’t generally experience any problems with it, so can only assume the proBs are coming from readers sides and/or that it’s possibly to do with high Internet traffic, causing jamming or other temporary tech glitches. I’D just advise you to keep trying at various times of day/night and see if it makes any difference. Thanks.

    It will always be interesting to read through content from other writers and use something

    you make running a blog look easy. The whole look of your site is excellent, as
    smartly as the content!

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, I’m sure I’ve already answered this question). Just in case, though, I’ll answer it again. I’ve been blogging for 9 years. Thanks for the compliments. Always appreciated. Glad it’s working for people.

  75. http://www.car-hifi-radio-adapter.eu/en/car-speaker/vw/ Says:

    Heya! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a
    daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, that’s okay, I appreciate the question. The quickest way to answer that is probably to say that different things work for different people. Ultimately, this is something into which you can put as much or as little work as you like. I’ve really built mine up steadily over the years. I think it depends on your style, your content, whichever techniques work best for you and your personal circumstances. I’ve found that with rock/metal reviews, more content tends to accumulate, with time and experience. Plus word-of-mouth, of course. Your daily journal writing is good practice, so I’d encourage you to continue that. As said in answer to a similar question from someone else on here, specific advice would depend on your content and your own circumstances. I have attempted to answer that question elsewhere on here, though, with some more specific tips, so would advise you to check that out and see if you find anything that works for you. Thanks.

  78. sell car accessories Says:

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think about if you added some great
    photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    images and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.

    Great blog!

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, if you look at most of the posts, you’ll find they do actually have images above or below them. Reviews of YouTube tracks have the YouTube video clips alongside them. So aside from that, I’m not sure what else you’d expect to see. As stated before, I do my best, within complex and wide-ranging health limitations. So the content I post is the most my health allows me to do. As I’ve also stated before, I have looked into adding some imagery to the blog itself. However, as this is something I’d need help with, the lack of response so far has meant it hasn’t been possible. That being the case, I need to use my limited energy and short durations of wellness, for the main content i.e. the reviews. Thank you for the compliment and the constructive feedback).

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, no it’s not off topic at all. It’s directly relevant. No, it doesn’t cost anything. All you need is a domain name/name for your blog and your login details and that’s basically it. Recommendations and advice really depend on your blog content, so if you’re going to be reviewing music similar to that which I review on here, let me know and I’ll try to help you out with some tips.

    Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump
    out. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Thank you

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, to be honest, I’ve really no idea how it was created initially, since the domain and login details were set up for me by a computer whiz, who was managing the IT section of the radio station I was volunteering for at the time. I just did the rest. In my case, all that has meant has been adding the content. All my systems have been updated since receiving a new computer, but really all I do is add new reviews, check and reply to stuff and monitor the stats. That’s really it.

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in web explorer, may test this?

    IE nonetheless is the market leader and a large section of folks will leave out your fantastic writing due to this problem.

    • jennytate Says:

      Hi, I’m sure I’ve already said regarding this, that I can’t see a problem, so am unable to fix it, as most others seem to be able to access it okay. I have had one or two others mention this, but as I’m not at all techy, there’s very little I can offer in the way of correcting this, if it is an issue, except to say try different browsers and/or logging on at different times of day/night. That’s about the limit of my tech advice know how). Hope it sorts itself out from your end.

  86. great fun Says:

    Have you ever considered about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.

    However imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one
    of the best in its field. Very good blog!

    • jennytate Says:

      Thanks for the positivity. Always appreciated. However, as has been said before, I am unable to do any more, due to my health issues. I have previously asked for some art input from others on the site, but that’s unfortunately fallen on deaf ears so far. So for now, the content’s the main focus. That’s probably how it will stay, unless one of my more arty metal friends can add some imagery to it.
