Za La Thu are a duo from Alabama that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult mixture of experimental, goth, death metal and avant garde music and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Psychotronic Generator".
A very heavy, melodic and progressive sound starts off the ep along with some technical death metal style guitar leads while the vocals are clean singing occult rock and goth vocals and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the synths bring in a very symphonic style.
At times the music can be very avant garde and experimental and when th e music speeds up briefly a small amount of blast beats can be heard while the main focus remains on mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction and the songs also add in a small amount of psychedelic touches and the riffs also display a great amount of doom metal influences and there is also a brief use of industrial sounds. and acoustic guitars are added onto the last track which is also long and epic in length.
Za La Thu creates a recording that takes technical death metal, doom, goth and occult rock and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording, while the lyrics cover Occultism and Left Hand Path themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Za La Thu and if you are a fan of occult mixture of industrial, goth, death metal and avant garde music, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Star Chamber". 8 out of 10.
