"RECOGNIZE NO AUTHORITY"
XTREEM MUSIC has unleashed a killer re-issue of the legendary California Crossover
Thrash band DETENTE's "RECOGNIZE NO AUTHORITY". If you missed these guys
back in the 80's then your in luck. The band formed back in 1984 and were one of the first
bands of the time to be playing the Crossover style combining Punk & Thrash together.
Dawn Crosby was the original vocalist of the band who later went on to front another
legendary band, FEAR OF GOD. The band was an underground great that mixed the
early days of Punk with the start of Thrash Metal. This was the bands only full length
release back in the day, but it was a classic right from the start. There are clean riffing
guitars, with a bit of a raw Punk edge and attitude. The song arrangements have that
classic feel that takes you back to those days when two worlds that should not have been
came together. I was growing up in that era, so I did get to experience it a bit and love that
genre of music. Crossover is one of those styles that has to be done right to be successful
and DETENTE did it right. Dawn's vocal styling really put these guys above a lot of the
other bands of their time. One of the best and most forgotten bands of the Crossover era.
If you dig bands like early SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, D.R.I, EXCEL, THE
ACCUSED, NUCLEAR ASSAULT & early CORROSION OF CONFORMITY then
your going to love this. Bands like DETENTE don't come around often so snag this one
up!. The band reformed in 2007 with new members so check out the new stuff as well!!!
