Rezet announces Self-Titled sixth sAlbum via Violent Creek Records

Speed/thrash metal aficionados, get ready for a sonic onslaught! Rezet is set to unleash their sixth studio album, simply titled “Rezet,” on August 30th, 2024, via Violent Creek Records. Fans can get a taste of what’s to come with the release of the first single on May 17th.

For fans of bands like Destruction, Megadeth, Heathen , and Traitor , Rezet’s new album promises to deliver the adrenaline-fueled, riff-heavy experience they crave. Hailing from Schleswig in Northern Germany, Rezet has become synonymous with uncompromising thrash metal, blending the ferocity of the genre’s classics with a modern twist.

With eleven blistering tracks and even a piano intro, “Rezet” showcases the band’s evolution and maturity. The album seamlessly weaves between the golden era of thrash metal and contemporary influences, giving the fans a new devastating experience.

This album marks a new chapter for Rezet with the addition of string sorcerer Nikolay Atanasov (AGENT STEEL) and bassist Lorenz Kandolf (TRAITOR) to the lineup, joining bands founder, singer, guitarist, and main composer Ricky Wagner along with exceptional drummer Bastian “attt” Santen. The result is a lineup that sounds stronger and more energized than ever before.

Produced, mixed, and mastered by the one and only Eike Freese ( HELLOWEEN, DEEP PURPLE, HEAVEN SHALL BURN ), “Rezet” was partly recorded at the band’s own “Rad Toad Studios” in Schleswig-Holstein. The album’s dystopian artwork, created by Pär Oloffsson ( Exodus, Aborted, Pathology, Traitor, Finsterforst ) depicts a mechanical landscape being reclaimed by new life, echoing the album’s themes of renewal and aggression.

“This album represents a second spring for Rezet,” says the band. “It’s honest, direct and bursting with aggressiveness. We’ve never sounded fresher.”

Prepare for a thrash metal revolution as Rezet resets the bar with their self-titled album coming August 30th, 2024.

“The first single “Unholy Grail”, from REZET’s self-titled, sixth studio album! Razor-sharp speed riffs somewhere between Megadeth and Destruction lead to perhaps the most anthemic chorus in the band’s history and are sometimes reminiscent of greats like Helloween or Blind Guardian. Produced, mixed and mastered by Eike Freese (Helloween, among others) and musically implemented with a self-confidence and freshness that is rarely found in modern metal productions, REZET builds the bridge between the late 80s and the present-day!”
