A staple of the San Francisco Bay Area underground heavy rock scene since 2007, ZED hits a new level of musical maturity and fires on all cylinders like a badass band who knows what the fuck they’re about on their newest full-length, “Volume”.
Released on Ripple Music in July, this tour de force of solid riffs and heavy grooves is easily one of my favorite albums of 2019. Vocalist/guitarist Pete Sattari’s gravelly vocals have never sounded better, guitarist Greg Lopez’ octane-fuled Sabbathy riffs sound bigger and badder than ever, and the battery of bassist Mark Aceves and skin-beater Sean Boyles is tight and punishing in the best way.
Standout tracks: Wings of the Angel, Chingus, Time and Space. Check out this amazing LEGO based video by multitalented bassist Mark Aceves featuring their single “Chingus”.
Fans of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, and Shinedown will dig this hard rocking album, available on Bandcamp and Spotify for instant listening. ZED is currently touring the west coast with the likes of La Chinga, Horseburner, and Age of Truth. Catch them if you can!
