Zaraza : Slavic Blasphemy

Let's not deny it any longer: Zaraza are not human. The creatures that created something as cold, sick and claustrophobic sounding as 'Slavic Blasphemy', can definitely not be human! This album is an obvious plot for world domination by letting us dwell in endless nightmares.

I have rarely encountered and album this scary! This is the stuff that nightmares are made of, a soundtrack of a horror movie too sick to actually be shown. Haunting miserable sounds are twisted around in such a way that I lack the words to describe this myself. As such I am forced to fall back on the dead on description the band themselves give: "Brutal Experimental Symphonic Industrial Doom Death Metal."

Especially the mixture of Industrial with Doom creates a claustrophobic atmosphere that has me gasping for air. No, this has not been made by human beings, this simply is too unholy.

If you feel your up to the challenge the band has made the entire album available from http://www.mp3s.com/zaraza/ or you can buy the album directly from them for a mere $3!! (check their homepage for further details) These cheap prices once more proving my point that Zaraza are evil nightmarish creatures out for world domination!

[edit by admin.: MP3.com is dead and since the band broke up I'm guessing you won't be able to buy this album from them either anymnore. For those who want to listen to the bands music, you can check it out on their MySpace page. Those who want to download it for free can get it where the band uplpoaded it for all to enjoy: http://www.archive.org/details/Zaraza_Slavic_Blasphemy]
