Three-piece Italian experimental metal outfit, Zu, are soon to be back with their first new full-length since 2009’s Carboniferous. Today, The Quietus is premiering the new album’s title track, “Cortar Todo,” which is pretty awesome in its repetitive rhythmic drone. It’s like a steady heartbeat before experiencing a heart attack. The track might not be for everyone, but in order to appreciate it one has to understand that it’s a bit avant garde, and the band is signed to Ipecac Recordings, which was co-founded by Faith No More‘s Mike Patton. So, if you like Mr. Bungle, you might like Zu.
Cortar Todo is scheduled for release on March 24th.
Recorded in the countryside near Bologna, Italy, in the summer of 2014, Cortar Todo features some very special guests including keyboard player Joey Karam (The Locust), Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia (who regularly plays with Mike Watt, David Grubbs, and Rokia Traore), and perhaps most unexpectedly, a field recording of an indigenous Shipibo medicine man recorded by Massimo during his travels around the Amazon.
