By releasing their most diverse record yet in February 2019, REZET (www.rezet.de/epk) make good on a promise they gave with the 2017 EP You Asked For It – not only with respect to the title Deal With It. With their fourth studio album, the hottest current band coming from Germany’s chilly north goes way beyond conventional thrash metal, where they have been pigeon-holed so far, in part justly so. However, Ricky Wagner and cohorts did not follow an “escape plan” during song writing. In this sense, the quartet artfully managed to play from their guts while freeing themselves from both stylistic and lyrical conventions. This is reflected on Deal With It especially in Dead Or White, which could be seen as a sequel to EP track Minority Erazer. Generally, the diversity they achieve within the classic metal template even in 2019 is remarkable. “Although you need categories in today’s large musical landscape, I never stated that we were pure thrash. First and foremost, we are ourselves – REZET – and simply a metal band”, Wagner states. This is proven already by surprisingly rock-oriented opener Treadmill To Hell with its tasteful solos that are so unlike the frantic noodling you hear so often in the genre, and later by the playful, driving Chaos In My Mind, which evokes early Megadeth just like the coolly grooving MDPV where Ricky looks back on a bad stint with drugs. “Megadeth are one of my key inspirations. To deny that would be as if Sepultura did not acknowledge that Slayer had been their idols early on.” The mix does well with some down to the point lyrics.
As opposed to closing instrumental Pile Of Shards, which serves as an atmospheric bracket for the multifaceted beast that is Deal With It together with the acoustic intro. Added to the mix comes the very much unexpected ballad Alone, REZET’s very own Fade To Black. The lightning-quick Spiral Down give just as much reason to enthuse and nods towards the raw speed anthems on Helloween’s debut as No Plan B with its compelling build-up and astoundingly gentle chorus. The amount of time put into pre-production has definitely paid off well. Eventually, the group returned into Chameleon Studios Hamburg, whose owner Eike Freese can by now be seen as a fifth member. “His dedication again raised the bar considerably. He burned to do it despite being a much asked-for producer and worked hard with his assistant Danny during countless hours of overtime. We gave him free rein and listened to his advice, especially when it came to arranging vocals and drums. To me, these are the most important aspects of productions anyhow”, Ricky remarks.
The result speaks for itself and REZET as a group that has matured in every possible way. Now at the latest, they are ready to become an international household name. A sound like the one Freese achieved here is something even some heavyweights can dream of…
REZET in its 2019 shape simply cannot be ignored… Curtains Up for the nordic quartet!
ARCHANGEL er et nyt band på den danske rock scene. Alle i bandet har rødder i heavy metal, som de blander med deres forkærlighed for hurtig og melodisk punk. Det lyriske univers beskæftiger sig med det overnaturlige, det uhyggelige og det voldelige. Live konceptet er at spejle den rå verden, vi lever i, med en bevisthed om individualitet og indvendig styrke – en teatralsk demonstration af lige dele melodi, energi og attitude pakket ind i et ultra blodigt horror live show.
