SabbathJeff This album sounds huge! Spectacular recording. So, when the liner notes say Mike Hubbard on the scrubbin and tubbin', is that the same Mike Hubbard of Worcesters' finest one-offs, the mighty WARHORSE?

Received. Spun. Loved. Thank you Gozu!

Drew Thomson Equal parts hard rocking and inventive. Fuzz, riffs, solos- Gozu keep it all coming. This is one of those albums that keeps rolling all the way through and never outstays its welcome. Favorite track: The People vs. Mr. T.

carnedo Thick, sticky, technicolour fuzz engulfs you and commands you to headbang. Crushingly groovy and, in spots, just the right amount of freaky. Favorite track: They Probably Know Karate.

about

For fans of the band — I consider myself one — and those who’ve followed them for some portion of the last 10 years, Equilibrium should stand undeniably as the most exacting representation of who Gozu is as a band to-date. Their sound is fully their own and they are in full command of it. Their songwriting is natural and the performances here from all four players together only demonstrates how much the lineup has clicked after touring in the US and Europe to support Revival. These same factors are exactly what also makes Equilibrium such a viable point of entry for new listeners. There is nothing redundant about Equilibrium, and the sense of balance that pervades doesn’t come at the cost of vitality; Gozu sound exciting, fresh, and like one of the most individualized bands in American heavy rock — which, of course, is exactly what they’ve become.

about

GOZU Boston, Massachusetts

At their core, Gozu is a bad ass American rock band. They’ve got heavy riffs in tow and bang out tunes loud enough to piss off the neighbors. Gozu is a songwriting machine, one that is able to churn out loud, hard hitting compositions without sacrificing the meaning behind the songs or the band. Gruff and dirty when it needs to be just as it’s swift and soulful when the time is right. ... more
