Zaraza - _Slavic Blashemy_
(Cacophonous, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
A powerful display of molding together experimental metal, death metal and noise. And it works. In a fist of fury, Zaraza lash out at the listener a truly dynamic outlook on heavy, aggressive music with a touch of ingenuity and electronic mayhem. I was thoroughly impressed with the way the band weaves technology into their pure aggressive nature of heavy rhythms and pounding beats. What also seems to help make things a bit more diverse and interesting is the inclusion of sinister death growls, that not only heighten the creativity of what they are doing but also seems to place a real unsafe experience into their music. It's creepy and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Other outfits on this label (Phycus in particular) have been known to throw a bit of eerieness/creepiness into what they do musically and it seems to have carried over into this project as well. For those wanting to experience something a bit different, but still containing familiar sounds/styles of the metal genre, then give this a go. A good band from a label that shows a promising future in band development.
