ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Four men, one giant sound. The Washington D.C. quartet called Rezin has been making music since 1992, but it may be 2006 that the hard-rocking band finally starts to break out onto the national scene.
For the past seven years, the current lineup of Pete Swindler (guitar,
vocals), Andy Hughes (guitar), Jon Blank (bass) and Matt Collazo (drums) has
been getting its chops right. Aim Lower is where they will start to soar.

XXXXXXXXXX

Armed with intimate lyrics, intertwining guitars and a bombastic rhythm
section, Rezin raises the roof in 2006 with the release of their fourth full-length CD, the powerful "Aim Lower".

The Washington, D.C. quartet of Pete Swindler (guitar, vocals), Andy Hughes
(guitar), Jon Blank (bass) and Matt Collazo (drums) has been together for
seven years, and it shows. Swindler and Hughes seamlessly trade licks behind
Swindler‚s substantive vocals. Collazo is a hard hitter, making a big sound
on the skins, while Blank brings in a variety of styles to complete the wall
of driving blues-based hard rock.

"I definitely think there‚s been a progression, Swindler said of the band's
time together. Now we sound more like one instrument than a band."

And that instrument creates a distinct sound apparent on their previous
releases: Stanley (1998), Summer of the Brain Dead Everyone (2000) and
Everything Happens (2004). While their albums are top-notch, the band really
shines in a live setting, where its individual members have more room to
freestyle and play off each other‚s strengths.

Heavy. Organic. Melodic. Persistent. Intimate. Creative. Texture. Powerful.
True .

These are words that have been used to describe Rezin, a four-piece hard
rock band hailing from Washington D.C. that will be tearing down a bar near
you very soon. With four albums, including the recently-released „Aim
Lower, fans know what they‚re getting when they come to see Rezin live: Not
only will they be challenged by Pete Swindler‚s provocative lyrics and
powerful guitar interplay with Andy Hughes, but their ears may bleed from
the driving rhythm section of bassist Jon Blank and drummer Matt Collazo.

Rezin rocks. In fact, the band tears it up on its albums and absolutely
shreds live performances. Keep an eye on local listings for a concert near
you or pick up one of their albums: You won‚t be disappointed.

A progression of metal and harmony
Y'know, I've been listening to these guys for years. Even before the release of the band's first album, Stanley, I've been a fan of their live shows, which you can catch in the DC area from time to time. But there's something new about Aim Lower, something more stylish, something even more progressive than before. After tuning Mr. Swindler's microphone to the degree that it can withstand the loudest decibel range imaginable, Rezin has managed to fuse their hardrock harmonies with introspective lyrics that plead the listener to investigate the meaning of these 11 very excellent songs. The last song on the album, Dinky Di, at first sounds like a throw away in that all it features is a howling hound harmonizing with a harmonica played by Peter Swindler. At first this sounds like an hommage to Pink Floyd's Seamus, but it's more of a metaphor for the entire album to me. The beast could be in pain, or is it joy? Maybe he's scared. That could even be anger in his howl. The blend of sounds the dog is making is not unlike the pain, bliss and fury Swindler screams into his mike, backed up by Matt Collazo's unforgiving handling of his drum equipment and Jon Blank's spot on bass line. Just listen to Stress Fracture and try not to get lost on the impressive guitar licks supplied by Swindler and rhythm man Andy Hughes. Very cool album. Probably their best yet.
