Zarraza: Thrash, Kyl-kobyz and apple.

Zarraza – Kreated In Blood

The most reliable way to count the number of countries is to take the member states of the UN. The organizations now number 193 countries. Permafrost has written about bands from countless countries, but never about a band from Kazakhstan.  Zarraza is from Kazakhstan and is a thrash metal band Kazakhstan and have released a   three-track EP visits some classic metal songs, infusing them with groove and traditional Kazakh instruments. This is a really unique-sounding EP, and maybe the readers of this article will enjoy the music?!

Kazakh thrashers Zarraza will release their three-track EP, Kreated In Blood on July 8th. The EP brings a fresh take on three classic metal anthems, staying true to the spirit of thrash, while weaving in the ancient Turkic instrument; the Kyl-kobyz. Zarraza is brutal thrash machine from Almaty, Kazakhstan. The name Alma Ata means the father of the apple (alma = apple) and refers to the different types of apples that grow around the city.)

The band says:

«Kreated In Blood is a dream come true. Now we got our own versions of our face songs but infused with Kazakh ethnic. We not only destroyed these classics with our performance but asked friends to help us and bring some special flavor to the final result. I assure you there is no version of Raining Blood like ours! Even if you don’t like it – I bet you never heard anything like that!»

Line-up:

 Nick Khalabuzar – Guitar/Vocal.

Dan Eternal – Guitar

Ilya Morozov – Bass

Zarraaza are no strangers to breaking down boundaries. Despite facing skepticism in their early days, they have forged a crowd of loyal fans – both in their home country and overseas – clawing their way from obscurity to opening for the likes of Rotting Christ , Sepultura and Tyr.

Their debut LP, Necroshiva, left reviewers speechless (Metal Sucks), and earned them an 8/10 from Metal Hammer. The band has been praised for being one of hardest working metal bands in Central Asia (The Headbanging Moose). As proud trailblazers in the Kazakh metal scene, it is only then natural for ZARRAZA to approach these covers in Kreated in Blood by combining their unique blend of thrash, death, and groove metal with the distinctive sound of the Kyl-kobyz; a centuries-old Turkic instrument.

For their take on Slayer`s classic hit, Raining Blood, Kreator People Of The Lie, and Gojira`s L’Enfant Sauvage, Zarraza holds nothing back. The drones of throat singing, the twangs of a jaw harp, and – of course – the piercing tone of the Kyl-kobyz are woven together with guitars, blast beats, and screaming to create a truly transcendental experience. By pairing time-honored riffs from metal with the traditional sounds of their home country, Kazakhstan, Zarraza have created something contemporary, classic, and utterly unforgettable.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (7110 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
