John Cratchley As sharp as a hot knife through butter...as prescient as an ancient oracle...as relevant as gravity...as unsettling as a seismic shock...as essential as air...as necessary as pain is to healing...as articulate as the void...

Marcus Mendes Zu is an incredible band, monsters of the free jazz. Eugene is a force of nature. Now imagine them both having some good fun!

Michele M. I Zu continuano a confrontarsi e ricercare: questo giro la voce di Robinson dispensa emozioni forti su un woodoo blues nero pece dal forte sapore cinematico. Intensi e introspettivi come mai in passato. Favorite track: The Relaxing.

about

Zu has always been a mercurial and ever changing entity, not afraid of cross-genre explorations and breaking down barriers between musical styles. Despite playing traditional instruments, major influences on Zu music have always been sonic explorers like Coil, Throbbing Gristle or early Neubauten.

The Left Hand Path is the side of Zu that has always been hidden and underlying in all their previous music.Its like digging out a box from the earth. TLHP is everything the band had wished to highlight in previous works: , ambient and droney landscapes, and acoustic explorations in obscurity.
The album starts programmatically with the sound of a shovel digging the earth. Its a soundtrack for a descent in the underworld. Its moon musick.

All the members played electronics and Massimo focused mostly on guitars .
The recordings were then sent to Eugene S Robison of Oxbow fame.
Zu knew he was the right person to add vocals to it, and to transform the music again, in a sort of contemporary post- everything voodoo blues.
