Extensive Definition

Reinforcer is an Iranian thrash metal band that formed in Tehran in 2005.


REINFORCER band was formed in summer 2005 by front man and lead guitarist Houmaan Saffarzadeh with co-operation of former guitarist of the band. Mohammadreza, Houmaan’s intimate and old friend has chosen as bassist at that time. On those days the band started their activities and rehearsals without any drummer till Ali Gharibi joined the band. The rehearsals sessions continued seriously. The first track that composed was The Pencil which is partially different from what you hear today about this track!! Other tracks also come one by one. In the April 2006 because of some internal problem the band got suspended and they have been no group activities for 6 months. During this time Houmaan did some changes and apply some ideas on tracks. In September 2006 by a reunion the bands again started their activities. But this time the former guitarist has refused to attend on rehearsal sessions so he has been fired and Nima Tabatabaee has been replaced. So finally, a live show in December 2006 and January 2007 has been prepared. In summer 2007 the first EP called REINFORCER released which was consisting of 4 tracks, I hate you just because of you, the day that world hates me, Forgive me and who is almost honest. After that the band started to work on their debut album which calls My Silent Rages which would be out in January 2009.
