Happy 2018!

Another year is coming to an end. We were allowed to celebrate it yesterday with Jimmy Gee and Hairdrÿer. The 1st Old Year Rock Bash was a great event! Many thanks to Urs for the organization and all who came by to celebrate the old year together with us!

Thank you all for your support in 2017. Have a great new year 2018!

The preparations for the 20th anniversary party have begun

Traditionally, we do not restrict ourselves to purely musical preparation, but have set a special Craft Beer for the event on 17 November 2017.

To match the music we brewed a strong pale ale with flowery notes, but with bite. The "RIZON 20 Years Anniversary Ale", limited to 60 bottles, will be available only this evening!

Of course, we have prepared some more surprises, stay tuned!

Second release show and latest album reviews

Power Plant was released last friday and we have received plenty of reactions and reviews. The second release show at Met-Bar, with Xordia from Lucerne as support act, was great! Almost as many people turned up as on the official release party in Dynamo.

Thanks to all of you!

Here you find the opinions of different rock magazines on our album Power Plant:

Taste Of Khaos 10/10
A quickening is upon these ears, it's mighty and engaging overtaking everything and give nothing back. Very exceptional dynamics and chemistry.

The_Metal_Mag 100/100
An amazing album that will capture your soul and lift it to happiness! A beauty , one of the best to come for the next year !!! You're gonna have to wait but it's worthy ;)

Ravenheart Music 9.5/10
There are 12 songs of catchy, bouncy melodic stuff from this Swiss band... this album is certainly well worth checking out from track 1 through to the awesome track 12.

Metalfactory 9.1/10
Wenn ich Prophet wäre, würde ich sagen, dass eines der besten Part-Time Female-Fronted-Melodic Metal-Alben dieses Jahr von den Zürchern Rizon kommt. Da ich aber kein Prophet bin, halte ich fest, dass "Power Plant" schlicht ein extrem starkes Album geworden ist.

Dangerdog.com 4/5
But fundamentally, Power Plant is Rizon simply being Rizon. They've found their sound in melodic heavy metal, maybe even heavier than in the past... entertaining stuff and recommended.

Power Metal DE 7.5/10
Stilistisch ist man dem Melodic Rock inzwischen zwar deutlich näher als dem Metal an sich, Fragmente der melodischen Metal-Gangart sind aber immer noch essentielle Bestandteile des Sounds der Band, die zudem einmal mehr einen Beweis dafür liefert, dass man durchaus auch erdige Klänge liefern kann, auch wenn das Keyboard nahezu gleichberechtigt zur Gitarre eingesetzt wird. Nur weiter so!

Metal Hammer 4/7
Natürlich bedienen sich die Musiker keines unbekannten Prinzips, doch die Umsetzung gelingt ihnen deutlich besser als manchen ihrer Kollegen. Auch was den Einsatz diversen Tastengeklimpers angeht, beweisen Rizon ein gutes Händchen. POWER PLANT eine Chance verdient, und Rizon dürfen in Zukunft gerne nachliefern.

Overall, this is pretty much a gem of modern power metal, if I’m being completely honest, and truly worth a listen if you’re into European power metal. It’s not genre defining, but it’s great power metal by a band who truly deserves to be larger than they are.

New Power Plant Shows comming soon!

After two great shows in the Hall ofe Fame and Metbar, we already can announce some new concerts for summer! Thank you all for the great support and see you soon!!
