Rizon hails from Switzerland, and Power Plant is their 4th studio release. The band generally plays a form of Power Metal with light symphonics (keys), but what makes them unique are the vocal harmonies and trade-offs at the microphone between frontwoman Rahel Fischer and long-time frontman Matthais Gotz. The production was handled by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat), meaning the sound quality is top notch … and there’s nothing wrong or subpar with Rizon’s music. The glaring “doesn’t fit” weakness within Power Plant is indeed those aforementioned vocal harmonies – they’re awkward at best and fail to blend together in a pleasing way.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
