Retour vers la lumière sings the northerner group! One thing is however certain, the lover of powerful rock will see it, this famous light, listening to this new album, very dense. Because, over time, the group emerges as a formidable machine, sweeping everything in its path to the rhythm of a powerful saturated sound. Both yesterday and today, this new effort lies on the borders of 1970s rock (a little hello / homage to Lemmy by the way) and stoner rock as it is practiced in the Californian desert. . The vocals, serious, pose things with authority to match the fat and saturated guitars and the rhythmic swings (breaks, slowdowns and dazzling accelerations) of the drums. Thus this old blues antiphon is perfectly digested over the course of compositions which, as adrenaline-charged as they are, do not forget the hypnotic component inherent in the style. An album in the shape of a drunken raft drifting along intense compositions with dizzying rendering. Successful from start to finish, even the cover is beautiful! - My Head Is A Juke Box
ZOË are back into the light !
It’s been quite a while since they were back on stage, but that’s it, they’re back ! And in addition, with a new album, their fourth : “Back Into The Light” !
“Back Into The Light”, their 4th album, is still rock n roll ! They once again trusted Olivier T'Servrancx (Lumberjack Feedback, Black Bomb A...) for the sound. And, combined with the mastering of Goran Finnberg (Meshuggah, In Flames, Glowsun...), it’s a success ! The 10 tracks are in the usual stoner vein of the quartet, “Back Into The Light”, “Voices”, “By Your Side” and “White Trash” are the good example. Other more psyche flirt with the 70’s ambiance of MC5, Stooges and Led Zeppelin : “Wild Wild City”, “Down In A Hole”, “Go Like A Bomb”. As for the last 3, more speed, Motorhead would not deny them : “Cut Class”, “In Praize Of Laziness” and especially “Band Of Brothers”, a beautiful tribute to Lemmy. In short, a complete album for the powerful rock aficionados!
