ZOZOBRA Releases “Harmonic Tremors” Today!
“Slow burning, like Zozobra’s namesake, Caleb Scofield snarls
fiercer than in Cave In, throughout this pair’s seismic mix of industrial
and psychedelic metal” - CMJ Magazine
"Simply put, ZOZOBRA's Harmonic Tremors is gigantic." - Pastepunk.com
Taking its name from the 50-foot effigy burned every year by a hysterical mob during the Fiestas De Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Zozobra is the brainchild of Cave In/Old Man Gloom bassist Caleb Scofield. Featuring live drums courtesy of fellow OMG institute liaison Santos Montaño, Harmonic Tremors deftly traverses the far-flung fields of transcendental space rock and explosive dirge metal (not to mention the occasional Godflesh-style pounding) with alternately snarling and oscillating riffery, crippling bass quakes and apocalyptic proclamations hurled end-over-end toward the cosmic unconsciousness. Echoes of Scofield’s previous devastations in both Cave In and OMG resonate throughout, but Zozobra ultimately follows its own smoke signals into the great beyond.
Zozobra is a concept parented by Cave In bassist and screamer Caleb Scofield. However, this is no bedroom-recorded, singer / songwriter project. This record is alive with dense guitar work, atmosphere, and live drums courtesy of Old Man Gloom banger Santos Montaño. It’s textured, riff-driven, and massively heavy.
Cave In’s cannon of work is nothing if not expansive and diverse. Fans who feel a strong affinity for their heavier compositions and vocal delivery will rejoice in Zozobra’s first full length. Caleb Scofield’s juggernaut basswork and snarled vocals are the lead boots that kept Cave In’s recent output firmly anchored in the heavy, and they are a plenty on Harmonic Tremors.
