You may not have seen this album before, but that’s understandable – the Carboniferous period was a time of low sea levels. But don’t worry; I’m here to help. Zu have been out on their own limb for their brief 10-year reign, in which they have belted out 14 albums including two live albums and two splits. The Italian trio have conjured up an innovative and dangerous sound best described as a fusion of Math Rock, Noise Rock, Metal and Avant-Garde Jazz

Now here's one schizophrenic record. The soundscapes are brilliant in all their harshness and aggressiveness. The only problem with this recording is that someone during some phase of the production thought that "louder is better" and decided to turn the SPL levels to maximum, which manifests in a horrific amount of digital clipping and compression. For this reason, I give 5/5 for the music and 1/5 for production.
Was the 2017 LP-version remastered or has it the same productional issues? Saw them live too in a small club with The Ex once, great stuff.
Why do they do this? Its crazy to push it at the expense of dynamics. We have a VOLUME function to push it if we want, leave the dynamics alone :( I saw this band live once......Well well well it was special. But the vinyl is not to be then :(
