Zu is epic. They have collaborated with everyone you know, played over 1,000 shows all over the world, and just released their 14th album to glorious applause. The world of critical review mostly refers to them as avante jazz, though I have also seen them labeled as math rock, metal, punk, free noise, and just about any other descriptor, but I just label them as the tightest mess you have ever heard. Seriously, go get this album right now and let your brain just explode inside of your skull. This time around Zu teamed up with the ever collaborating Ipecac label owner, Mike Patton, and The Melvin's King Buzzo. Personally I like Zu instrumental style and think that Patton's eerie vocals are the only downfall of Carboniferous. The instrumentation is as brutal and as epic as music can be. Seriously, these Italians are doing it right! That's all I have to say, go directly home and annihilate your eardrums with Carboniferous. Just keep your arms inside the ride at all times and when your parents come screaming and knocking down your door don't tell them that I told you to buy it.
