“Reality Is A Lie” is Rezet’s third (full length-) studio album and a manifestation of how much the band has matured. Musically, they have taken another step forward.

In the early days, the band’s line-up changed repeatedly and their tastes in music didn’t seem to fit in with what was happening around them so they were considered exotic outcasts during that time. This, in fact, made Wagner and Schulz work even harder and Rezet quickly became an insiders’ tip.
