10.0:         Cannot be improved! Perfect, instant classic! Essential in any record collection.
9.5 – 9.9:  Fantastic, spectacular and outstanding!
9.0 – 9.4:  Amazing release! It just lacks that little extra spice to make it perfect.
8.5 – 8.9:  Exceptional release! Will likely rank among top ten albums of the year.
8.0 – 8.4:  Great release! It has many different qualities.
7.5 – 7.9:  Above average! It is an enjoyable release.
7.0 – 7.4:  It is not brilliant, but has many strong points.
6.0 – 6.9:  It has its moments, but is not that strong.
5.0 – 5.9:  Slightly above average, does not stand out. Good outweighs bad by just a little.
4.0 – 4.9:  Just below average, bad outweighs good by just a little.
3.0 – 3.9:  Mediocre. There might be a song or a performance that is enjoyable, but that is it.
2.0 – 2.9:  Very weak! There might be a light at the end of the tunnel, too many flaws.
1.0 – 1.9:  This release gives the word “terrible” new meaning.
0.1 – 0.9:  Awful! Avoid at all cost. There is nothing good to say about this release.

The Backstory

German four-piece Rezet released their first album for Metalville Record in 2019 entitled Deal With It!. Wasting no time Rezet returned to the studio to record what they call their “most song oriented album. The result is 2021’s Truth in Between.

[Listen to our Ricky Wagner interview HERE]

The Album

Rezet make it clear that they are coming at you hard on “Back For No Good.” Frantic riffs, pounding drums, and snarling vocals command the track, while things stay just as intense on “Deceived by Paradise.” Vocalist Ricky Wagner is reminiscent of a young Dave Mustaine in that he can’t hit the high notes, but you don’t care because of the intensity and anger in his delivery. “Populate. Delete. Repeat.” is dominated by a powerful marching beat, as Wagner barks out the orders. It’s pure Metal guitar solo fury during the sped up middle section.

“Half a Century” is a schizophrenic mix of mid and fiery tempos. Cobra Spell/ex-Burning Witches guitarist Sonia Anubi contributes a memorable solo while bassist Bjarne Otto lays down some thumping bass riffs. Rezet slow things down on “Infinate End,” but a dark tone and bleak outcome looms over the song. “Jailpit” is a thrasher that makes you want to fight (or mosh). Wagner is a man possessed on “The Plague.” It’s a little surprising that “Never Satisfied” wasn’t the lead single. It’s the most “radio friendly” of the bunch.

The Verdict

Truth in Between bridges the gap between old-school Thrash and modern Heavy Metal. Somehow Rezet figured out how to present a polished album that feels raw and live.



  1. Back for No Good
  2. Deceived by Paradise
  3. Populate. Delete. Repeat
  4. Renegades
  5. Half a Century
  6. Infinite End
  7. Truth in Between
  8. Jailpit
  9. I’m Not Gonna Stop
  10. The Plague
  11. (Un)certain Crimes
