Irish sludge powerhouse zhOra have released a live video for their track ‘Turmoil’ shot at this year’s Bloodstock Festival. The track is taken from their sophomore album Ethos, Pathos, Logos which was released on 27 October.
Watch the video here:
Vocalist Colin Bolger comments: “Turmoil does exactly what it says on the tin. It takes you and your precious feelings and drags them through the mud and blood until you can’t take no more. We love playing this tune live and we had the opportunity to storm through it at the absolutely amazing Bloodstock Festival this year. If you haven’t been you must mark it down on the bucket list!
Come see us storm through it in the flesh on December 10th at Facebarmagedden in Reading. It has a serious line up featuring our Irish brethren Dead Label along with solid bands like Raging Speedhorn, Evil Scarecrow and tonnes more. This will be our last show of 2017 and we have a real pant wetting set planned so make sure you bring some spare knickers. The Winter months will see us eating lots of mushrooms, trying not to ruin our lives with whiskey and writing riffs, riffs and more riffs for our next full length. The tracks are already spilling out of all of our collective orifices and they taste better than ever. The future is bright, the future is zhOra.”
Over the span of six years zhOra have quickly become one of the most recognisable names in the burgeoning Irish metal scene. In this time the band has released one EP Feet Nailed to the Ground (2011) and their debut LP Almaz (2013), both releases garnering huge praise within the scene. Now in 2017, the band is set to undertake the next stage in their journey, Ethos, Pathos, Logos.
In the only predictable aspect of the band’s sonic trajectory, Ethos, Pathos, Logos finds the band once again putting themselves under their own microscope and refining their approach. With a lush cover designed by acclaimed Visionary Artist Jake Kobrin, the record is zhOra’s first back-to-back concept album, an hour long journey through past lives and cannibalism.
