Zulus' debut is something more than 22 minutes length, I like that. Tempus fugit, you know, and, drawing a parallel, usually adrenaline has to be shot and injected quickly. Think Savage Republic's tribalism, post-punk outburst, and maybe Distorted Pony. Four piece from NY, Brooklyn, these noise addicts never take foot off the fuzz pedals, while Daniel Marten's declaiming vocals are always in a bath of reverb and echo. So, they flame on Surgery, To Die, - and their selected - somehow more audience-friendly - single Blackout (funny video, kids). Tremolo is pure epilepsy, with an excellent, ecstatic blooming around the middle of the song. To be played out loud. Not recommended if you have a susceptible neighborhood. Kisses sounds like the hardcore version of Bauhaus' Hollow Hills: probably just my personal fantasy. It ends with Deathin the current (how differently something alive should eventually end?), their sole four minutes track. Kinda epic in its psychedelic vibe. That's a good debut record for me. Brilliant and fierce, though, I must say it, the digipack artwork really sucks (white CD, a few notes, horrible cover.. in my personal and useless opinion, of course ;-)).
