Zao - AWAKE (CD)
- New Factory Sealed
- 2009 Ferret
- Individually numbered. This is 3449/8000
Merely a small handful of bands - Coalesce, Deadguy, Converge - have left a mark on the underground scene as vital, as potent & as completely authentic as Zao. The band embodies a heartbroken yet desperately optimistic perspective that could only have been shaped in the deep inner entrails of the American Northeast, delivered with all the subtlety of a massive head trauma, the complexity of the human eye, & the passion of a poet's soul. A new rhythm section reunited with the original singer & songwriters brings the epic, 'The Funeral Of God', a dark trek to the end of the world & beyond.
