Zolle Streaming Self-Titled Album

Blazing out of the backwoods of Lodi, Italy, the Zolle duo this week harvest a belligerently unhinged self-titled debut rampage.

To celebrate the bountiful harvest, today Zolle streams the full album online via Altsounds (the album can also be heard below). The following press release was issued about the band:

"The fully instrumental chaos Zolle drunkenly stumbles triumphantly through rages with lively off-kilter riff marches and schizokiller percussive thunder, distressed builds and healthy disharmony. Recorded with a nearly fully live performance by Michelangelo Roberti at Mizkey Studio (Morkobot) and mastered by Giovanni Versari (Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man), utilizing a massive copper drum kit and an old digital 1950s amp coalescing into a mammoth, organic sound.

"The album also bears gifts of synth from Urlo (Ufomammut, Supernatural Cat) and Roberto Rizzo (Quasiviri, Runi). Zolle is out now on Supernatural Cat -- the underground label run by Malleus Rock Art Lab, the artist collective featuring two members of the psychedelic doom trio Ufomammut. Order the hand-screened 180-gram LP with included CD limited Malleus edition of Zolle direct from the label here."

Zolle Streaming New Track

Supernatural Cat -- the Italian underground label run by Malleus Rock Art Lab, the artist collective featuring two members of the psychedelic doom trio Ufomammut -- will harvest Zole’s self-titled debut LP worldwide on May 13th.

With song titles entrenched in references to redneck living, the newest Zolle single “Heavy Letam” is suggestive of “Letame” -- which means manure in Italian -- resulting in “a shitty anagram about heavy metal.”

Take a whiff of the riffs of “Heavy Letam,” alongside the previously dispatched “Trakthor,” now via Invisible Oranges or the player below.

Pre-orders from the hand-screened limited LP/CD edition of "Zoll"e can be placed now at this location. More...

Zolle Streaming New Song

Supernatural Cat will set the self-titled album from Zolle loose on May 13th, 2013. In celebration of the pending release, a new track from the album is now available for streaming.

Listen to "Trakthor" at ThisIsNotAScene.com or through the player below. The following press release was also issued about hte band:

"Blazing out of the backwoods of Bruzzelle, Italy, born in homage to plow and harvest -- harvesting riffs, plowing grappa -- the Zolle duo will release their belligerently unhinged full-length debut of rural rampage in plenty of time for tomato season.

"With only two members, somehow the magical Zolle still features members of Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man and more. The bandits’ self-titled album stumbles triumphantly through inebriated off-kilter riff marches, schizokiller percussive thunder, disharmony and distressed builds abound, the pummeling concoction void of a goddamn human voice for its duration.

"There’s nowhere better on the near-half-hour colostomy of Zolle to let you all know where we’re coming from than just hitting play on this thing. So, here is the album-opening tune which the band would like to inform you is called 'Trakthor,' except they’re an instrumental band, making it impossible to actually tell you. But the word 'Trakthor' only translates from Italian to English as, 'Trakthor,' so there’s no harm done.

"Formed by Marcello Lan (Morkobot), who lays down the meaty riffs, and counterpart Stefano who beefs things up on drums and xylophone, Zolle commenced work on their debut album throughout the summer of 2012, and in just two months they had the music ready to commit to tape. Recorded in September of the same year by Michelangelo Roberti at Mizkey Studio (Morkobot) and mastered by Giovanni Versari (Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man), performed almost entirely live, the drums are of considerable proportion and made of copper and the amplifier an old digital model of the ’50s which makes for a mammoth sound.

"In addition, Urlo (Ufomammut/Supernatural Cat) and Roberto Rizzo (Quasiviri/Runi) make guest infiltrations bearing drunken gifts of synth throughout the duration of Zolle’s ruckus." More...

Zolle To Release Self-Titled Album

Supernatural Cat, the Italian underground label run by Malleus Rock Art Lab (the artist collective featuring two members of the psychedelic doom trio Ufomammut) has confirmed its next release. The label comments:

"Zolle, self-proclaimed rednecks, are on the loose and ready to run amok with the release of their self-titled debut album, an ode to backwoods ways of living. They might not take themselves too seriously but don’t be fooled, their music is much more intense than a lazy hayride; brace yourself for a ferocious, rampant record of thunderous riffs and robust drum blasts. Formed by Marcello Lan (Morkobot), who lays down the meaty riffs, and counterpart Stefano who beefs things up on drums and xylophone, the duo commenced work on their debut album throughout the summer of 2012, and in just two months they had the music ready to commit to tape.

"Their self-titled album was recorded in September of the same year by Michelangelo Roberti at Mizkey Studio (Morkobot) and mastered by Giovanni Versari (Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man). It was almost all played live, with overdubs reduced to the bone. The drums are of considerable proportion and made of copper and the amplifier an old digital model of the ’50s which makes for a mammoth sound. Finally, Urlo from Ufomammut and Roberto Rizzo of Quasiviri/Runi add synth seasoning to flesh out the album. More...
