I LIKE THE NEW ZAO SONG. WAIT… I LIKE THE NEW ZAO SONG?
Just as Vince was surprised to find himself enjoying Isis last week, I am now more than a little shocked that I enjoy the new Zao song, “What Will You Find?”, which is now streaming on the band’s MySpace page. Granted, prior to this my only real experience with Zao is 2004’s The Funeral of God, but that album struck me as being so very meh (and before all the Zao fans start flipping their shit, by “meh” I mean it wasn’t great and it wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t for me).
But this track is pretty kick-ass – it’s angry, dirty, and vicious. I especially dig the mid-section when all the crazy guitar shit starts happening. And the best part? No more shitty clean vocals! Hoo-ray!
The song comes from the band’s new album, Awake?, which will be released by Ferret on May 5. I may actually have to listen to this thing!
