Zombi - Shape Shift

SKU 28-RPE7673152.2
After far too long, a new one from this quite fabulous synths and drums instrumental duo. They've certainly kept busy as each half of the band has released solo albums and they toured the USA with Goblin, where I finally got to see them. While you can hear their influences clearly (Goblin! Heldon! 70s synth-disco Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream!), they really just sound like Zombi at this point and no one else. This is a really strong one from them and this conceivably might be the one - if there ever will be one - to push them over the top from 'beloved cult band' to 'hipster popular acclaim'. Highly recommended.

"After the lengthy break that followed the band’s beloved last album 'Escape Velocity', 2015 sees ZOMBI ready to reclaim their rightful role as space-rock overlords with their sixth full-length 'Shape Shift'. The album was self-produced by the band and recorded at Machine Age Studios in Pittsburgh, PA and Steve Moore’s private studio in central New York. Darker, heavier and more dynamic than their more recent works, Shape Shift sees the duo in "live band" mode, a fitting return to their roots after their successful North American tour with the legendary Goblin in 2013 and a triumphant headlining appearance at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in April, 2015. Whether you’re an adventurous listener or die-hard fan, delving into the latest chapter of ZOMBI’s expansive and ever-progressive oeuvre will never disappoint."

Soooo good to hear that this excellent band has left(for the most part...excepting one short cut) the DISCO behind. Here they make their imaginary soundtracks for your nightmares and twisted dreams,....just like you remember them doing until that "last album". Darkness presides and eerie sounds reign....just as they should. Great!
