Last night I decided to check out a recently posted release at Torn Flesh Records, and low and behold it turned out to be gold .
Zelophilia can only really be described as an Avant Garde/Mathcore band. But that title really does them little justice, because this album is so much more than that. I haven’t stopped listening to it since the discovery. It’s that good.
It deals in dark themes, most of which are sexual in nature. Between the heavy/raw riffage you get these awesome Sinatra esque vocals.
Every now in then we get some narrative filler, by what sounds like a demented freak the likes of Clown from the Spawn comic books.
The production value is great, we have layers upon layers of interesting sounds. Makes for great atmosphere.
I don’t want to get into it much more, because I am still devouring this thing. But I recommend this to anyone who likes a little experimentation with their heavy.
