ALBUM: JZZBLK – “Welcome”
GENRE: Avant-garde metal
RATING: 9 / 10
JZZBLK’s ([dʒæzblæk] avant garde/experimentell rock/metal).
Now here’s a local band that has had a hard time convincing me. I guess it took a couple of years, a pink t-shirt, two live-shows and the release of “Welcome” to convince me.
This sort of music ain’t usually my cup of tea so describing it will be interesting enough. I know I can cheat a bit since I know some of the bands members, and what they (he) listen to (Thanks to their tie to the now defunct orchestra Ghamorean and the fact that I DJ’d on their gig with JZZBLK as opener a year ago or so). So, by hopefully naming bands such as Ved Buens Ende, Virus, Tool, Mastodon, Primus, King Crimson, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Emperor to name a few I at least get something right.
How do I describe this musical piece if I ain’t that into many of the bands I mentioned above?
