Zu - Igneo

I'm not really sure what I can say about this that'll do it justice. Its a trio of bass, drums and sax. They are from Italy, and play a mixture of jazz, avant garde, grindcore, hardcore, math rock and noise rock. Probably one of the most diverse groups I've heard in a long time, and one of the most interesting. Its simply amazing. Just listen to it and be amazed. Stand out tracks include "Muro Torto" and "Mar Glaciale Artico".

1.The Elusive Character of Victory
2.Solar Anus
3.Eli, Eli, Elu
4.Arbol de la Esperanza Mantente Firme
5.Monte Zu
