December 21, 2012 marked the dawn of another release, 'True Me(n)tal', a 4 track EP on the many ways Heavy Metal drives one mental. This is the second EP released by Villainizer, and still independently, exclusively on vinyl, and limited to 500 copies. With Sam 'The Jewish Villain' engineering, Jasio 'The Lunar Villain' mixing, Richard 'The Trillium Villain' mastering, Tylor 'The Titanic Villain' guest soloing, Josh 'The Irish Villain' drum programming, and Rob 'The Arab Villain' writing and recording all instruments and vocals. All copies of True Me(n)tal will also include a download card for the mp3 version which includes a bonus 5th track; a Jimmy Hendrix Pardoy of 'Manic Depression' entitled 'Metal Depression'
With 2013, Villainizer headed to the studio to record their second terror-clad full length entitled 'Reign In Terror', a play off of Slayer's 'Reign In Blood'. The lyrical themes and arabian thrash that everyone has come to know wasn't changed, but this time around the album featured a full line up (and real drums!). Josh "The Irish Villain" Needham on Drums, Trent "The Quantum Villain" Halliwell on Guitars, Drew "The Druciferian Villain" Copland (Death Toll Rising) on Guitars, and Rob "The Arab Villain" on Bass and Vocals. Set to be released Fall 2013. "This album will be our thrash opus" stated frontman Rob "The Arab Villain". "I can tell this will be our best thrash album, because the direction of the band is gonna change over time. Don't expect "hard rock" nonsense, but I see a darker future in store for us.
