"Igeno aint bliss, but it is burnished and blistering rock done as if by magic without a lead guitar. Black magic indeed with smoke coming out of Luca Tommaso Mais saxes, on two tracks Ken Vandermark doubles that damage. Additionally two other Chicago Brotzworkers join in the fiery festivities, but Zu really needs no assistance. The rhythm section of Massimo Pupillo on bass and drummer Jacopo Battaglia, theyre sort of an Italian answer to the Ruins. They provide an infernal (lower-case m) magma of sound. Pupillos basswork is active, with chord flashes and quick fingerwork to make one almost swear that guitar is present. Or maybe thats the contribution of live soundman Alberto Mattaroccia. Crunch and feedback whinny fit so well with the angry horn work. A powerhouse release, with unquenchability." KFJC
