We’re thrilled to announce that Bulgarian guitar wizard Nikolay Atanasov has officially joined our ranks to perform with REZET on all upcoming live dates and to contribute to the new studio album.

He states: 

“I became familiar with REZET when they were part of a DESTRUCTION tour in 2017. I’ve always thought it’s a great band, so I couldn’t say ‘no’ when I was asked to join!”

Atanasov has worked with internationally known musicians from bands such as Megadeth, Testament, King Diamond, Queensryche, Annihilator and many more. He was also a part of the last Agent Steel lineup, being one of the main songwriters and playing on the last studio album.

Nikolay will replace former guitarist Jan-Erik Fischer who had to leave REZET by the end of last year.

The band is now working on a new studio album that is planned to be released later this year. 

The first shows featuring the new lineup will happen this weekend in Rostock and Husum, Germany.


We have just begun to start the production of our next studio album!

While being already very creative during last year, our output was even more triggered when our new member joined and we felt like a whole band again. 

We completed the work on final demos last weekend at “Cherry Tree Studios” in Northern Germany with our long time friend and co-producer/manager Paddy Bieler, where drum trackings have started now also.┬á

REZET has recruited producer Eike Freese (Deep Purple, Helloween, Heaven Shall Burn a.m.m.) once again to guide, mix and master the recordings.

Expect an ultimate comeback, Rezetbangers!
