classic stuff

eczematique

lots of tricky rhythms and clever dissonant prog-rock touches. big nasty guitar sounds and roaring vocals and tight playing - one of the best 90s noise-metal albums.

Ocean of Death

This is outstanding death metal, or whatever you want to call it. If this thrills your whistle, check out Zeni Geva's Nai Ha.

This is HEAVY METAL, dude

REXX

I was raised on a steady diet of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Deep Purple and the like and then went on to enjoy Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Sepultura and then Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Agathocles, Assuck and Anal C*nt, and I must say that Zeni Geva absolutely Crush, Crush, Crush in a way that you must experience if you're into the hardest music out there. Enjoy!!!!!

They Say All Music Guide

Like one of Akira Kurosawa’s acclaimed Samurai epics cross-pollinated with the type of bludgeoning metal championed by Slayer, Freedom Bondage charges stoically, stolidly, furiously, but in firm control, bolstered by the tremendous engineering work of Steve Albini. Guitarist KK Null — known also for his experimental, sometimes ambient, sometimes painful-beyond-listenability soundscapes — plays with a decided flair for both overdriven death metal and more painful, art rock-inspired single note runs, quite similar to Today Is the Day’s Steve Austin. However, Null’s most impressive and overwhelming trait is his vocals: He sings the way Toshiro Mifune screams and grunts in Kurosawa’s films. It’s quite daunting and powerful to listen to. In fact, Freedom Bondage is Zeni Geva’s most potent and consistent work, a surgically precise blend of Japanese avant-noisescapes, death metal, art rock, and industrial sensibilities, all harnessed brilliantly, with tremendous attention — as usual — to drum tone and breadth, by Albini. – Patrick Kennedy
