Reapter is a thrash-prog metal band founded in Rome in 2005 by Max Pellicciotta Emiliano Niro and Claudio Arduini. It was decided to adopt the monicker Reapter, derived from the merge of two english terms: Reaper (as Death) and Richter (the seismic scale).
At Moan Barrow Productions, we love their hard driving thrash song "Subliminal" found on Spotify here: https://open.spotify.com/track/0fRUZBWjQlB1PmRnR5j1Em?si=f1f185cfa8f44066 This song is really amazing with all the drive needed to keep your heart racing till the last possible note. They absolutely killed it!
Jury Pergolini (bass) joined the band a year after they had originally formed, and with his arrival the band could start to write the first songs that will be on the first EP called “First One” 2008 - 2009:
