I thought "detente" meant non-confrontational. the cover suggests otherwise.

New album? Cool! First I thought what? But they have reunited earlier this year. Well, looking forward to this one.

I find it an insult that the reunited band calls itself Detente. Detente was always solely Dawn Crosby's band. So how the hell is it possible to call this band Detente when she is no longer with us? It just boggles my mind

You mean that she was like Hetfield to Metallica or Schuldiner to Death or Akerfeld to Opeth? Kinda the mastermind?

Yep, she was the mastermind to Detente as well as Fear Of God

In this case I have to agree with you. They probably should continue under that name. Or rather re-unite under that name.

non - confrontational?
Either there is another word called "Détente" that I don't know it's meaning or just the word Détente that means "(you) stop" in spanish

I'm not really into thrash so this is the first time I heard this band. I knew about their existence though.
Wow... She was good, a really shame that she died. And I do find really really weird that they use the same name. I would like Opeth to continue if Åkerfeldt was dead for example.

That is more or the meaning of the weird.

Here is what the dictionary has to say on it:

1. A relaxing or easing, as of tension between rivals.
2. A policy toward a rival nation or bloc characterized by increased diplomatic, commercial, and cultural contact and a desire to reduce tensions, as through negotiation or talks.
