"Gozu transcends expectations of genre as they effortlessly gather the freakiest bits from classic metal, psychedelia, grunge and post-rock droning." - The Boston Herald

"With its new album, Revival, Gozu finally unleashes its own demonic roar. Easy comparisons to other bands won’t cut it any more — the group now claims an individual place in the history of bands that specialize in delivering blissed-out riffs and dank menace. Revival puts a dark spin on the merits of being born again." - Arts Fuse

"What we are dealing with here is eight songs that were properly assembled to interconnect and create what is the finest military-grade, ass shaking machine the western hemisphere has had the privilege to develop. Revival is a triumph of style, rock & roll, and diesel engineering." - Heavy Planet

"While the dark, brooding nature of this style of music is never going to veer too much from the blueprint, the unexpected shades of lightness that the band bring to the table often see them trip into Hawkwind territory - and that's no bad thing. Add a touch of stoner groove such as QOTSA or even Orange Goblin and you've got an album and band that have grown since that first album back in 2010 and are rightly winning plaudits with this album." - Uberrock UK

"Gozu are one of the most exciting bands going right now on Ripple Music. The driving rhythms, tripped out vocals and crazed solos come together to form some thing that very much fits the aesthetic that Ripple has cultivated over the years. What Gozu understand that far too few of their peers bother with is the simple beauty that heavy music can have especially when stripped down to its core components. With Revival the band expands on their trademark organic sound which resonates across the ages, and invokes the sort of powerful, very human metal magic that so many of us have fallen in love with over the years. This is a band who are able to take traditional tropes and evolve them into something greater." Metal Injection

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
