Die zwischen Classic Doom und Heavy Stoner Rocker schwankende Truppe GOZU hat gestern, am 19. Mai die neue Scheibe “Remedy“ unter das Volk gebracht. Die Veröffentlichung feiert das Boston Quartett mit der Veröffentlichung ihres Tracks `Joe Don Baker`, der dutlicher in Richtung Heavy bzw. Stoner Rock geht als die `Tom Cruise Control` Auskopplung.

GOZUs Vocalist und Gitarrist Marc Gaffney erzählt über die neue Scheibe:
„A wise man said, ‚To rock is human, to roll is divine. Gozu’s Remedy should be cranked at full volume, all the time.“

There is a certain maturity mixed with a childlike enthusiasm to play music, and we all are better players now than on Equilibrium. We have all really tried to look at what we enjoy but more what we do not enjoy. Playing music is a gift and when it becomes A Nightmare on Elm St Part 37.3, you are done.“ The result is nine tracks of their signature combination of fuzzy, ’70s-inspired riffs, rich, catchy, grunge-esque vocal melodies and a touch of old school trippy psychedelia written and played with the utmost passion and enthusiasm, eclipsing everything else in their catalogue. „The band wanted a very heavy groove-oriented album with singalong choruses. We also wanted sonically to hit you in the chest, like a three-combination, left-right-left, like Micky Ward. Harmonies and melodies were something we really looked at and wanted to shine, and thick guitar tones, driving bass and drums were under the microscope.“
