That’s if you like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, or Queens of the Stone Age…or preferably, all three.
Because listening to Zodiac N Black, those are the influences that come out most clearly.
We were contacted by Jim, the London-based band’s guitarist, and “we’d be hugely grateful if you’d include us in the ‘Readers’ Bands’ feature (or just generally made a big song and dance about us),” he writes.
Oh you would, would you?
Let’s put it this way: Jim’s own description of Zodiac N Black’s sound (stoner pop) is fucking fitting. If there were ever such a thing, they are that.
I have to say, these guys are tight, and people should check out the song at the end of this post, which one would be hard-pressed to argue isn’t good.
There’s stuff for everyone to love about this band, whether you just dig driving guitars or enjoy smoking dope and rocking out in your recliner.
“We are by no means the epitome of metal, but we do think that we carry a certain heaviness that was birthed in my hometown of Birmingham, England in the late 60’s/early 70’s that comes more from a weighty rhythm section that an abundance of distortion,” says Jim.
