Rezet – Reality Is A Lie

Death Angel, Flotsam & Jetsam, Suicidal Angels, Destruction, Warfect, Paradox, After All, Assassin and now this German band Rezet. That’s a hell of a lot of thrash in 2 months…. Not one of them isn’t worth listening to and should be part of your collection if you are a thrash lover. I only wonder who is going to buy all this stuff….

Take for example this Rezet, the songs have influences in them of the known combos, but with some fine tempo changes and strange breaks. The musicianship of the members is splendid and that also counts for the production. The singing of Ricky Wagner is aggressive, but with a higher pitched sound than we are used from the average thrash band. The tempo of the songs is high and in “Dying By the States” they exalerate in super high speed. Certain guitar parts of that track have some Possessed influences in them. That early Metallica is an influence as well can be heard in “Too Smart To Live”.

The mix of old school German with early eighties (Bay Area) thrash is a mix we hear from many bands, but somehow Rezet gives it something extra. I advice you all to give this album a chance.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
