Zeni Geva - Nai-Ha

Nipp Guitar, 1993

Few bands may make you want to throw out your collection of hardcore and death metal records like Zeni Geva (although Big Black may come close). 'Cuz here it's just done right. Genius & brutality, as those Brainbombs would say. Intelligence & strength, pain and ecstasy are explored but this ain't no musical pornography, this is music for the thinking man's body. The Nai-Ha EP in particular puts this on show more than earlier records, with advanced compositions and sections of psychedelic scream-drone that move beyond the early Swans-isms of works like Maximum Money Monster and Total Castration.
