Zodiac - A Penny And A Dead Horse

The Münster/Germany-based blues rock four-piece band ”Zodiac", in many respects, embarks on new terrain.

This is Rock music as it could hardly be more pure and multi-faceted. The new album Sonic Child by Zodiac could neither assign to a specific era of music history nor a narrow-minded specified style. The songs on Sonic Child are traditional and versatile, have strong riffs and driving drums, are affected by a well-tempered influence of the blues, with a carefully selected degree of hardness at any time.

Frontman Nick van Delft is the focus of the enjoyable hustle and bustle, telling of little adventures and grand gestures. Some of it seems to be located in the desert of Arizona (Penny And The Dead Horse) (”Todays tune btw”), whereas others seems to be in the cotton fields on the banks of the Mississippi River (Rock Bottom Blues). Zodiac showcases the best statement on their artistic visions at the very end: "Just Music". Yes, that's the point here & nothing else!

Band line-Up:
Nick Van Delft - Vocals & Lead Guitar
Stephan Gall - Rhythm Guitar
Janosch Rathmer - Drums & Percussion
Ruben Claro - Bass & Organ

Jäklars, Stones. Vilken fullträff. Liknar resten av plattan det här så står den högt på önskelistan.

Mycket bra band - även om jag inte hört denna senaste giv!

Kul att ni gillar det. Det återstår att se om plattan håller samma klass när den väl släpps, men det det blir iallafall något skoj att se fram emot.
