Zaraza are a duo with members from both Canada and Ecuador that plays a mixture of experimental, industrial, sludge and funeral doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Spasms Of Reality".
A very heavy doom/sludge metal sound starts off the album along with some spoken word parts and programmed beats while harsh industrial style vocals and melodic riffs are also used at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the heaviness of funeral doom.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while sludge style screams are also used at times and as the album progresses the music starts getting more experimental while some tracks also add in a small amount of grim sounding growls that also add in touches of black and death metal and a brief use of melodic guitar leads can also be heard and all of the songs tick to a very slow musical direction.
Zaraza plays a musical style that mixes experimental, industrial, sludge and funeral doom metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Zaraza are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, industrial, sludge and funeral doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Maskweaver" and "Wulkan". 8 out of 10.
