ZAUM ‘Oracles’ CD/LP/CS/DD 2014

4th November 2014 at 10:19 am

ZAUM

It’d be easy to think that ZAUM is just another group of derivative Sleep worshipers. The name, the cover art, and the sparse instrumentation centering around bass guitar and drums places this record squarely within the lineage of Al Cisneros. But to write this…

Zed ‘Visions Of Dune’ LP Reissue 2014

20th July 2014 at 10:09 am

Zed

I’ll admit that I was never lucky enough to be caught up in Frank Herbert’s admittedly mesmerising spell; Dune was something that piqued my interest briefly in my teens and then fell quickly by the wayside (blame cheap cider and bad horror) but there…

Zhrine ‘Unortheta’ 2017

19th June 2017 at 7:13 pm

Zhrine

On the face of it, the name Unortheta doesn’t give much away. Neither does Zhrine, the name of the Icelandic band behind it. The cover art is the only thing that hints at the madness within. Cliffs suspended on a cuboid island that hovers…

Zig Zags ‘Scavenger/Monster Wizard’ 7” 2013

29th September 2013 at 11:39 am

Zig Zags

Rock and roll should be raw, raucous, rowdy and righteous. If it ain’t any of these things it has no business being called rock and roll in the first place. Fortunately Zig Zags are all of these and could probably find a few more…

Zodiac ‘Sonic Child’ CD/LP/DD 2014

17th September 2014 at 11:04 am

Zodiac

Zodiac are here to rock! That’s what their bio tries to get across to you, pure rock with no mucking about. They channel the spirit of 70s rockers like ZZ Top or the Eagles without the overt country influences. A release that sounds like…

Zombi ‘Shape Shift’ CD/LP/DD 2015

16th January 2016 at 2:52 pm

Zombi

Seminal synth wave outfit Zombi have kept fans waiting for 4 long years for a follow up to 2011’s Escape Velocity, but they’ve now returned to Earth, bringing with them their own unique brand of space rock/extra-terrestrial music to show the competition that they’re…

Zozobra ‘Harmonic Tremors’ CD 2007

15th February 2007 at 8:57 am

Zozobra

The latest side project from Cave In’s Caleb Scofield. Edging between sludge and an almost space rock feel, this debut album could not be more aptly titled. Distorted riffs being thrown to the background by Caleb’s singing, and then complimenting the grungy feedback layered…
