Year Formed


This was, more or less, the goal of Ricky Wagner (g,v) and Thorben Schulz (g) who were bored and annoyed of the new metal trend that overshadowed the beginning of the 21st century.
With their primarily inspirations of 80s Speed and Thrash Metal they began to start their own act and looked at their neighbourhoods to find guys with the same affection of fast metal with all its attitude and musical extremeness. 

The line-ups changed repeatedly in the early days of Rezet, but there were numerous of live recordings and first demo recordings that were spread in the underground scene of Germany until the band released their EP 'Toxic Avenger' in February of 2008. This 5 track CD was copied some hundred times to prove Rezet's originality and consistence of the so called 'New Wave of Thrash Metal'. 

Concerts with big classic acts such as Tankard, Flotsam & Jetsam, Agent Steel as well as gigs with new Metal bands from all around the world such as Steelwing, Skull Fist, Violator or Gama Bomb followed. When they supported Portrait and Enforcer in the beginning of 2009, Iron Kodex Records signed Rezet right on spot after being thrown around of the band's speed riffing show. 

The band's debut album 'Have Gun, Will Travel' was released by Iron Kodex in July 2010 and Iron Bonehead Prod. from Berlin released the first vinyl version. 
Rezet toured Europe several times, played the infamous 'Wacken Open Air' for two times already, in 2009 and 2010. Underground metal events got thrashed by the band, for example the 'Headbangers Open Air' in 2011!

Rezet released their second full length album called 'Civic Nightmares' on March 30th 2012 by Twilight Distribution, a big label and company from Lübeck, Northern Germany. Their next European tour started on March 29th and included Germany, the UK, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and France…

In early 2013, with Frank Gehde on bass and Hakon Hensen on drums, Rezet signed to "Allegro Talent Music Management" (Paradox, Mekong Delta, Vendetta...) and are now in search of a worthy label to continue with their third full length that is planned for the middle of 2013. Their next European tour is planned for July 2013, after that the band will concentrate to go overseas for the first time!

Look out and dive into that world of Metal without any boundaries. Their time has just begun…
