This EP is new but at the same time old.
All songs are old – they were written years ago and released on self-produced demos “Bullets & Beliefs” (2012) and “Cutting Meat. Fast & Loud” (2013). We decided to re-recorded it fully because we still play some of this shit live. So we carefully dig these remains, inject them with new viruses and put out as EP.
Also it is our way to honor ex-mates who help us start ZARRAZA: guitarists Максим Саклаков (Maxim Saklakov) and Damir Yunussov, bass player Alexander Filatov. Guys! Though you escaped from the band you are still infected and keep rotting with us!
And last… The EP was recorded with bassist Evgen Hablack who left the band in the middle of the recording process but helps us to finish it. Thanks for your support (though our new bass player Adil Aliakpar is jealous as fuck!)
