YOU ASKED FOR IT - they answered!

"[...] such an absolute overload of killer riffs it would have made Dave Mustaine piss his pants of jealousy in 1984!"

Four influental Metal musicians reviewed REZET's new EP "You Asked For It": DESTRUCTION's front beast "Schmier", ANVIL's drum icon "Robb Reiner", ENFORCER's singer/guitar maniac "Olof" and GAMA BOMB's bass nerd "Joe". Scroll down to all four quotes!

"REZET are the breed of the young savages. They are among the ones that hopefully will pursue the legacy of Thrash Metal in the future. Their new EP is faster and heavier than their older material and reminds me of the 80s American Speed Metal, some HALLOWS EVE riffs are blasting with doses of thrash and are blending into an own style of extreme music. Well done boys. The Dead Kennedys cover fits excellent into the album and is sure a highlight - there would be no Thrash without the good old Punk Rock. If you like it raw, wild, relentless & uncommercial, then you have to check out those German lunatics! Support the underground and the forthcoming rocketeers!!"

"REZET with current offering deliver youthful energy in the spirit of early Megadeth-style Thrash Metal, sounding tight, direct and honest to the craft...nice job boys!!"
- Robb Reiner (ANVIL)

"'You Asked For It' is such an absolute overload of killer riffs it would have made Dave Mustaine piss his pants of jealousy in 1984. This EP contains a bunch of thrash anthems catchier than any band of the old guard accomplished to make in decades."
- Olof Wikstrand (ENFORCER)

"Ass kicking full speed Teutonic Thrash in the tradition of Tankard + Kreator. Vocals and guitars have a real Megadeth snarl!"
- Joe McGuigan (GAMA BOMB)

More informations and inquieries at the official Facebook event!




as a Band coming from Northern Germany we felt the urge to write these lines to all of you - worldwide - out there. It's hard to summarize the hate and disbelief we feel right now. Hamburg's the city REZET has played the most shows ever so far, so we know almost every little spot of that beautiful place that is a bit more than 100km to the south of us. Plus: at moment we write this, we just finished the recordings of our upcoming EP in Hamburg.

World's leaders are gathering there and pretending to change the world into something better. They always have and always will, as long as we follow them. Too many facts make the current situation a smack in the face:

Why one of the biggest cities of the country? Why not somewhere at the countryside? Makes us think about a planned act in the first place.

Police brutality. We're witnessing cops beating the hell out of people. Mostly young, peaceful protesting men, women and teenies.

Protesters' brutality. There are people who use events like that to bring action into their boring lives. Cars, houses and existences of innocent families are going up in flames. You don't fight capitalism like that!

Understand that also Germany is a police state. Understand that maybe these actions were planned to go that way.

But don't give them the chance to blame you, to blame us. The ones that try something to change. Violence will always be the language of the weak.

And most of all, remember the innocent men, women and children who are suffering states like that EVERYDAY since their birth and maybe until the day they die. Now imagine living in places like these. Don't suppress them to pack their stuff (if they have any left) and flee to a uncertain, maybe better world...

Make love, not war.

Ricky, Bastian, Lucas & Bjarne

Alright Rezetbangers,
it's our turn to wish you all a great new year, may 2017 be the best one all of us ever had, alright?!
But first let's look back at this year that is almost over now:
2016 was beyond real for us as a band...
"Reality Is A Lie" was released world wide thru Denmark’s prime metal label Mighty Music (Target Group) in May and the release launched our idea of a new start, the ultimative "reset"!
We introduced a new logo, advanced our sound, got a perfect fitting management and publishing partner and were just about to head for bigger goals when original founding member and Lead Guitarist Thorben Schulz decided to leave the group after more than ten years of Speed Metal madness. Other bands despair of this misery, REZET revived with a surprising force: Lucas took over the six strings assault while former Roadie Bjarne moved up to be our new Bass guitar player. Now stronger and tighter than ever before, we went on to tour excessively again: we played many European countries and in October/November we wrapped up a 6+ week long pan-European tour as special guests for Canadian metal icons ANVIL!
The day we got home we opened our mail accounts and found out about the chance to tour with one of our biggest influences ever, DESTRUCTION, in early 2017. We knew it should happen!
So thank you all out there. For staying so loyal and supporting us in the good and in the bad days. You guys rule! And let us also send prayers to the ones that had to go through a lot of miserable stuff in this year. Nobody can deny that our world is in a very extreme state now, let's try to make it a better place in 2017, ok? Maybe we can't change the system, but we can show them to be a good human race as brothers and sisters hand in hand, all around the globe.
Love and respect.
- Ricky, Bastian, Lucas and Bjarne.

REZET to tour with Destruction soon!

After their first successful touring leg in autumn 2016, legendary German thrashers, DESTRUCTION, return to the stage with the second part of their »Europe Under Attack 2017« tour in January and February.
As support act they do not only bring the Brazilian thrash institution NERVOSA with them, but also GONOREAS from Switzerland as well as the German shredhopes REZET.
Find all current dates for this inferno below!

Fronter Schmier comments:
"We will give two great rising talents the chance to open the show and prove their skills: GONOREAS are already a well-known metal act in their home country of Switzerland.
The powerhouse features Damir Eskic, a former guitar student of Tommy Vetterli (Coroner) and also the #1 shredder in Helvetica - he also played on the last DESTRUCTION album.
It's now time for them to rule over Europe with us! REZET from Germany are a tight American influenced Thrash band with lots of killer riffs, they have been tearing up the underground for a while now and are an ideal fit on a DESTRUCTION tour.
Our fans will dig their material I’m very sure!"

REZET got asked to join the official VIP/Band "Anvil Metal Pounders" among the likes of Metallica, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Megadeth, Deep Purple and others... not that bad, huh?


Group shot after last show: REZET & ANVIL + Crew!

"We want to thank everybody involved in that 6-weeks-marathon of Heavy Metal: all the Fans, Promoters, Booking Agents, Managements and last but not least our new friends from Canada! Anvil rulez!
It meant the world to us, being special guest on a whole European Tour for one of the most original and timeless Bands of all time.
Without these guys Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and many more wouldn't exist like that, which means the same for REZET.
Thank you Lips, Robb, Chris, Dalila, Brother B, Bobby and Albert!
You prove that Metal is timeless and doesn't need any stupid clichees, no pretended bad boy-image but is what life should be about... That's why we fit together so perfectly!

Hope to hit the road together again, soon... your bro's in REZET"


German interview with Ricky and Bastian (attt!) before the show in Landgraaf, NL last Sunday.


REZET to headline "Toxic Waste Fest"

REZET will be headlining act of upcoming "Toxic Waste Fest" in March 2017. Be sure to check out that awesome billing featuring a lot of great bands! More information, presale etc at the following Facebook event page:


"Rezetbangers, fans, friends and followers:

We want to say "hi!" to all the great people we met during our "Speed Metal Assault West Coast Tour" in the US last year!
But at the same time we are happy we had the chance to go to this beautiful country before this election happened...

Politicians are marionettes, the ones that represent what "they" want us to see, hear, speak, feel etc.
In fact, it usually doesn't make any difference if you vote A or B, or even C, things will happen as they were planned.
But it is a difference to vote another corrupt marionette or someone that is all in all racist, sexist, violent and selfish.

Let us be everything good instead. And make this WORLD great again. We hope so."

- Thorben Schulz leaving REZET -

besides all the great stuff that is going on in our cosmos, there are still things happening that aren't easy to handle...
as some of you already knew, we wanted to wait for this confirmation until it felt right:
Our brother Thorben is leaving the band.

There never was and never will be bad blood between him and the rest of the band, but there are stages in life where you have to make decisions. Thorben made them.
As a touring band nothing is easy and nothing is free. Well some things are, you know what it takes.

As Bon Scott already sung:
"Gettin' robbed
Gettin' stoned
Gettin' beat up
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks"

Lucas is now shredding the lead guitar and is giving over the bass to former roadie Bjarne.
We'll prove the new line-up's power on our upcoming tour with Canada's ANVIL. We will blow heads and melt faces, promised!

We wish Thorben just the best for the future, below is his personal statement about it:

"Dear Friends,

I have to inform you that as of today I will be no longer a part of REZET.
There's absolutely no bad blood, quite the contrary, we're still very good friends
and that won't change.

It has always been a pleasure for me playing shows and making music with the guys and
the band brought me to places I wouldn't have been to without music,
but now I realize that this journey needs to come to an end for me.

Leaving the band was definitely not an easy decision, I thought about it many times recently, but it's the best solution for the good of all,
since the band gets more and more show- and touring offers and I'm not up to that task anymore.
Everyone's gotta have the same goal and needs to cooperate, otherwise a band doesn't work the right way.

Even if it's difficult for me, I decided to leave the band in deference to these matters of fact.

I will not leave the music scene, nevertheless.

Thanks to all the fans and bands that I got to know and for the support over the years, and of course a huge THANK YOU for the great time to Ricky, attt and Lucas!
We'll meet again!

See you soon, Cheers!
