Biography

There are a number of artists working under the name of Recon:

1. Recon is a straight-edge, heavy hardcore/metal band from Albany, NY, originally formed in 2003. In 2006, they released one EP on Closed Casket Activities entitled Graves. Now signed onto Rise Records, and after a number of line-up changes, the band recorded and released their debut full-length, “Welcome to Viper City,” on 7/8/2008.

2. Recon was also London based sound artist, Chris Coode, also known as Motion, who has released numerous works on 12k. Recon is his heavier sample driven homage to those DJ edit tracks found on white label house and techno 12”s of the early ninties, which were meant to be used as mixing blocks for DJs.

3. Recon is a Christian heavy metal band out of California who formed in 1987. Vocalist Vett Robers originally came from a band titled Seventh Thunder. His vocal style is often compared to Geoff Tate (Queensryche) and Behind Enemy Lines totally sounds like Queensryche on overdrive (playing speed metal similar to their Warning release) with Christian lyrics. Lead guitarist George Rene Ochoa really shreds on Behind Enemy Lines, and he is backed by Eddie Starline (Rhythm Guitar), Mike Grato (Bass) and John Christianson (drums). Recon first appeared on a compilation entitled California Metal 2, later recording Behind Enemy Lines. But around the same time, due to internal problems with the band, Ochoa had decided to join Deliverance (another Christian metal band) leaving Recon behind.
