Rezet-Have gun will travel


Iron Kodex/High Roller

Back in the 1980's I couldn't get enough thrash metal and I would grab the latest release from whatever band came down the pike. Looking back not every band was good, but is was still a new genre so there was room to grow and a number of bands churned out some good and farily original ideas. Today a lot of younger bands have brought thrash back, but not all of the bands add any ideas to what was done twenty plus years ago. Germany's Rezet have been working their way up opening for the likes of Flotsam and Jetsam, Tankard, Gama Bomb and Agent Steel. They have also put out several demos, but now they have finally released this their debut album. These youngsters are not exactly breaking the mold, but they are approaching their material with everything they have. The influences include Megadeth, Kreator, Exodus and others. They storm through their songs with ripping pace changes and far more riffs than many other thrash bands could even dream of constructing. Yet despite the swirling amount of ideas they still remain very tight in their presentation. Add to that some admirable songwriting because you will remember many of these songs after just one play. They not only have the sound down, but also the whole powerful spirit that was in the best thrash acts of the 80's is obviously in Rezet's music too. That's not to say that there isn't room for improvement because they could be even better if they continue to develop. "Have gun will travel" is an explosive display of real thrash must own for all fans.
