The sides of the LP were recorded a couple years apart, and it’s interesting to trace this band’s evolution. Basically, Zebras are a skewed, gloomy metal band with a Moog. The earlier material borrows the surging dynamics of chaotic hardcore, while the newer stuff was recorded with a more precise drummer, and moves into Today Is The Day/Am-Rep territory. It’s got catchy moments and brutal moments and the whole thing is just recorded with bile. Certainly not a fun listen, but definitely a good one.
