Truly felt evil misanthropic hateful vocals blending perfectly with the doomy haunting guitars,this is an essential release of the year for singapore's black metal scene.This release by Zushakon propels them to the top of asian black metal elite and it is inevitable that world ablaze will be remembered as one of the greatest ever releases after IMPIETY'S Skullf***ing Armageddon in singapore's black metal scene.
After the truly talented Draconis Infernum comes Zushakon now with a true homage to the underground and who would have imagined world ablaze would cause so much damage.

Absolute killer and it is a surprise really that coming from a south east asian country,they can essentially capture the cold harsh winter essence of Scandinavia and incorporate so much of the relevantly felt hate and aggression twined with beautiful melodies which are really haunting at times as you can feel the scenario of dead's suicide in the songs Excuse all the blood part 1 and 2.The vocalist odhinn has some really sordid,twisted vocals which sound so tormented and chiilingly depressive at times.
This is an essential release for all the fans who wish to go back in time to the old glorious and notorious days of 90s scandinavian second wave of black metal.

very good effort from an far eastern band,i must say the songs online really left the aftertaste of remembering this band for the melodies in excuse all the blood 1 & 2.
I'm a fan of Draconis Infernum(another blistering and awesome black metal band from asia) and i have another favourite from Singapore now-Zushakon.
Just wondering where to get their cd though.

I think the new stuff is nothing great.I can't actually figure out the 3 reviews above putting this band made up of two guys in the same league as the battle beast from asia-Impiety.
Draconis Infernum kicks a$$ and Zushakon doesn't come any closer to these 2 bands, but being brutally honest, i think they are alright compared to alot of the sh** bands in singapore who come up with nothing but Impiety ripp offs who can't play their instruments, thus forging a noise core sound and calling it war metal black metal whatever.
Zushakon's world ablaze won't be remembered, this infatuation with Dead and Morbid is just a fad to get people interested.

Zushakon is a good band from Singapore together with many other talented bands in the island city state,it's just that these bands are unknown due to the fact that many are unsigned.Among these bands,the few bands that stand out in today's singapore metal scene(not counting Impiety in because they are already well established and have built a strong fan base internationally.)are bands that are serious about their music,committed and dedicated to the local underground metal scene.
Coming from Singapore,i have seen so many bands come and go,from the haig road thrashhead days to the new scene which can be sometimes colorful and a joke to both locals and caucasians.It's always better to give credit when credit is due.Zushakon in my opinion has done well in their latest release to make people sit up and start noticing them.
It's always easy to criticize bands and their releases but it's difficult when we put our foot in their shoes.Give these 2 guys a break and appreciate what they have cut so far.For me Zushakon may well be the Satyricon of Asia.

Zushakon is a good band, the latest release 'World Ablaze' has a variety of different feel & tempos to it, it's not monotonous like some bands playing the same straightforward basic black metal without any variations in terms of music.World Ablaze has it's share of thrash, punk & death all mixed in a cauldron pot called black metal and fans of all extreme metal genres will probably like this album. Love or hate Zushakon,they are talented unlike some who plagarize other prominent bands.
The only setback for Zushakon is the cover art,while the logo is very remindful of their Mayhem influenced black metal,the background is just plain...maybe next time the Zushakon guys will try and improvise on that...despite all that the music is good while i would say the vocals on track 4 is just awesome.Good job guys!

The vocals reminds me of Attila Csihar!
a very good effort this time,Chaosophist was okay but World ablaze sounds much much better and much more solid and tight in terms of production and the music is simply blistering black metal.
I think we can't compare the other bands like Draconis Infernum or Impiety to Zushakon because the style of music is totally different with the 3 bands.Draconis Infernum plays very good Black metal but their style is straightforward Norse influenced Black metal whereas Zushakon's style is much more varied with different genres thrown in the mix.However both are good bands and i would like to watch Zushakon and Draconis share the same stage someday.
