Zoku Metsu is a duet of experimental electronic musician Robert L. Pepper (Pas Musique, The Jazzfakers) and avant guitarist Ron Anderson (PAK, The Molecules, Ronruins). They are back with a new self-titled album. According to the press release, Pepper and Anderson first combined their efforts joining Philippe Petit and David Tamura, on the 2010 Closed Encounters Of The 4 Minds CD released on Public Eyesore Records. Now they have joined again to form 7 new concentrated compositions on the Alrealon Musique label.
Zoku Metsu derive their name from the Japanese word Zokumetsu meaning “destroy the whole family”. The name invokes ideas of reinventing/reorganizing of studio techniques as applied to experimental electronics, guitars and drum machines.
Zoku Metsu’s original starting point of inspiration is a love of 70’s German bands; e.g.Neu!, Faust, the Berlin School, and Krautrock in general. Let your imaginations fly and take a sonic voyage with Zoku Metsu.
