Review: Zoe – From Hell

National Music Reviews

Zoe - From Hell


Crust War

They’ve been described as “total Amebix-worshipping raw biker metal punk,” and all I’d have to add is, “with Slayer solos!” The recording is raw but really full. Zoe sounds like they’re always on the verge of full-on thrash metal but constantly stick to straightforward drum beats and riffs instead of veering into blast-beats and speed-picking. What you get is extremely filthy, fast and metallic hardcore punk played with the utmost conviction. Listen From Hell!.
